Konami, in a statement to Game Informer, has officially announced the delay for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. Instead of being a fall 2012 title, it has now been slated for a release in 2013. I would say in Q1, but who knows at this point.
Konami didn't explain the details of the delay, but it does surprise us given that Josh Laddin saw it running perfectly fine at E3. This also doesn't spell well for the 3DS, which doesn't have a strong lineup of AAA titles this holiday season. At any rate, Konami did provide some new screenshots which you can see above and below.
