Contemporary woes and how Castlevania: Mirror of Fate can aid the franchise

Leviathyn says: "A storied franchise like Castlevania needs no introduction. Since 1986 and over the course of 30 different games, we’ve literally been whipping Dracula and his aberrations to death. Rehabilitating as this practice obviously is, the impending release of Castlevania: Mirror of Fate dictates that this obsessive practice won’t slow anytime soon. It’s great to see a franchise as classic as Castlevania continue moving forward in strong suit, but it’s no secret that the series has been mired by its shift to the third-dimension. Mirror of Fate sends Castlevania back to its two-dimensional roots, but the question still remains – can it help break Castlevania’s contemporary curse?" (3DS, Castlevania: Mirror of Fate)
