Gabriel Belmont returns to Carmilla’s Castle after the events in Castlevania: Lords of Shadows, but before the epilogue. In "Reverie" players adventure through three stages as Gabriel assists Laura who "plays" with Gabriel before letting him go. You’ll be able to control Laura in "certain sections" during Reverie.


Here’s an animated look at what’s coming on March 30. Reverie will cost 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and $9.99 on PlayStation Network.



Reverie’s plot twist links to Resurrection is the next downloadable content pack for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow where Gabriel faces a fearsome foe.

    So I suppose this explains the ending

    • FireCouch

      That’s not a spoiler or anything.

    • [The Hunter] Doomrider

      Edit… Go!

    • Testsubject909

      It wouldn’t hurt, but it’s pretty easy as to guess why we got that ending.

      By the way, I’ll try to be spoiler-free, so go and edit yours. I’ll just mention: Castlevania’s Ending Discussion with no specifics about the end-game content, and that should be enough for people to get it.

      You see. Gabriel is adopted. It’s presumed he’s the bastard son of the Cronqvist family.

      If you don’t understand, nor can make the connection to IGA’s continuity as to the beginning of the Castlevania lore…

      You need to then play Lament of Innocence, and everything will become clear. And also, take a moment to re-look deeply into Gabriel’s actions and mentality. It’s obvious his speech towards the end isn’t all that whole hearted.

      Seriously, it’s no surprise whatsoever that the ending to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is as it is.

        I know he is an orphan but I just assumed he started the Belmont line in this new storyline

      • FireCouch

        I actually just beat the game 2 days ago and thought the ending was pretty awesome. I didn’t expect the setting at all, and it made me wish for a game of that style.

        And yeah, I saw the ending “twist” coming as well and I don’t think it’s that confusing.

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    Not feeling this interactive comic storytelling thing… Not in this one.

  • Testsubject909

    And I can honestly say: I’m not surprised, nor stunned, nor confused. Just hoping to see this run through smoothly really.

    I never got into the whole confusion about “What’s up with the ending? It makes no sense”.

    It makes sense, always did, it just required people to look at all the information given to them. It’s not even that big of a twist as you kinda see it coming midway (if not even further back as to when you first meet up with Pan. That dream sequence? That’s huge foreshadowing.)

    And as for what I can draw out of this trailer, outside of “a greater threat” popping up, everything else is pretty much as I would’ve assumed his eventual shift that led to the epilogue to the game.

    Of which the key emotional words would be: Guilt, Betrayal, Hatred, Despair and ultimately, Heresy.

  • Do you need the full game in order to play this? I rented it back then with GameFly, now I am too busy to even benefit from GameFly so heh cancelled.

  • Really hope those animated cutscenes are not in the actual DLC.
