I mentioned the current (as of this writing) issue of Nintendo Power a couple of days ago when I was talking about Simon Belmont’s appearance in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, and I figured that perhaps I should mention it again here, if only because I have a review in it (Ketzal’s Corridors, if you were wondering).

The June 2012 issue is on sale now at newsstands, and bears the cover seen at right featuring Trevor Belmont (the subscriber covers get Simon, so you know I’m pleased). In addition to the Mirror of Fate coverage, there is a second Castlevania article looking at the good, bad, and ugly things from throughout the series (and not just on Nintendo’s platforms).

It’s rounded out by an article featuring essential Wii titles (of which I have many, but not all) and a nifty look at the characters from the upcoming Wii game The Last Story. Some neat behind-the-scenes info there about how they developed the characters.

You can check out a preview of the issue here.
