The other day, Konami released some screenshots for Mirror of Fateand I was again reminded of the exciting prospect to play a Metroidvania on my 3DS. Until it was made clear to me that even though it'll be a side-scrolling game, Mirror of Fate will not be a Metroidvania. That made me sad. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure Mirror of Fate will be super awesome, but I really wanted some of that classic Castlevania gameplay we've come to love, you know? Maybe some change is for the better? We'll find out come early 2013.
