Depending on which side of the Atlantic you live on, Wednesday's Nintendo Direct offered either little or no information about Konami's latest chapter in the ongoing Belmont v. Dracula saga.

As if to remedy this oversight, Konami confirmed hard release dates for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate: March 5 for North America and March 8 for Europe. With any luck, the firm dates will stick and the game won't slip to a later release date.

To go along with the announced release dates, Konami also provided a new trailer for its latest Castlevania offering that focuses on the rather Irish-sounding Trevor Belmont and shows off the game's artistic animation style nicely.

The trailer also highlights the game's impressive soundtrack, but sadly doesn't provide any additional gameplay footage.

With any luck, this will be the last word on release dates that we have for this title but we'll keep you updated should anything new develop.
