According to a report by Dutch website N1ntendo [via Kotaku], Konami will be unveiling a new Castlevania title for the Nintendo 3DS at E3 next month. Supposedly, the title will be known as Castlevania: Mirror of Ages and has been in development for more than 18 months by now. More details are included after the jump.

Though details are scarce, the report suggests the game is being developed by the Spanish studio MercurySteam, who also developed Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Konami has requested that the news be taken down, suggesting that there may be truth to the rumors.

Additional rumors that have surfaced since the news broke indicate that a Nintendo WiiU version of the game had been planned, but Konami eventually decided against it. Instead, a sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which is also supposed to be in development at MercurySteam, will be released on Nintendo WiiU as well as Playstation Vita, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.
