Remember just under 30 days ago, when we broke the news of a mysterious clue hidden in the image of a moon on the preview page for the next issue of Nintendo Power?
Well, the time has come, and as you’ve probably guessed by now from looking at the picture, the big reveal is Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for the Nintendo DS. Sorry, Earthbound fans.
I don’t have my new issue yet, sadly, but in the letters section, I can only assume it was Chris Slate who had written the following after realizing the internet had gone into a frenzy, trying to solve the puzzle:
“Well, see, the moon itself was a clue about this month’s Castlevania cover game! Umâ€¦get it? (Gulp.) Okay, so we stretched things by hinting that clues could be found ‘in’ the moon – it was all Steve’s faultâ€¦!”
Again, the issue isn’t in my hands, but I can imagine that the above preceded a mad run by Slate for his very life.
