so weve got scans! from Nintendo power.
I wont post any of the rumors because fuck them theres too much of a shitstorm regarding what is true and what isnt. here are the scans, thats enough.
Now, thats for the 3DS game.
There is also a console game in the works, which will be revealed the 31st, here's the teasers for that one.
if you look at the code you can find this line, too:
Dare you face the evil darkness? It is written that the creatures behind that door will return very soon to claim the souls of your loved ones, and send you straight to hell! Be aware!

And a hero fighting his father? Now why does that sounds familiar?

Though I wonder. Did Gabriel ascend, leaving his body to become this 'Dracula'? Or was his ascension denied?

he was conflicted over the events that transpired, mainly that he was his wife's and Claudia's killer, and yet was not able to bring Marie back, that the whole prophecy was one big lie, one big farce which accomplished nothing, since it was all one big plot by just one of the Lords, And then confronted with the knowledge that in killing the Lords he weakened their seal over a powerful Demon sealed in another dimension, he was already teetering on the edge. Becoming a vampire cost him his Humanity, his remorse, and changed him. He became ruthless and lost his last shreds of pity. He defeated Satan and thus he, by his own narration, had become "The Dragon". (EG he felt himself superior to even Satan) He mercilessly killed TFO, and absorbed it's power. He destroyed the Combat Cross and left it in that realm. And from there, became who we see in this trailer. Carmilla's prediction came true, he did become like the Lords of Shadow.
As far as Mirror of Fate goes, Trevor is basically sent to reclaim his family's Honor by defeating Gabriel. Given the explanations given in NP, thats where it is rumored that he will become Alucard. Because of the Mirror McGuffin showing fates or something.

Though I must say, Trevor becoming Alucard is another version of the 'Where Alucard came from' I've heard of. Still interesting.

and I dont think you know what that word means... LoS is part of the CV canon. just like every other CV game. EVERY other. even the retconned games.
a canon is a body of works pertaining to a certain subject.
however, as to what i assume you meant, it isnt replacing the old timeline, you know... this is a reboot, but by Dave Cox's own admission it is more like the Marvel Ultimates line. IE, it doesnt change anything already established, it's just an alternate take. An alternate timeline. the same way Battle Network is an alternate universe to the Classic->Legends timeline.
the speculation is more that he becomes a vampire, like his father, and from there becomes this continuity's version of Alucard. The recent E3 trailer hints at that. And yknow what, Im ok with it. with the LoS universe comes completely new rules, and im eager to see what they do with the story.
isnt much worse than Dracula being Trevor's grandfather and Alucard his father is it?
the hell you on about, son.
no it isnt.
people need to get the fucl over themselves and realize this DOES NOT retcon anything from the established timeline. it is a reboot alternate universe. I still recall the old timeline. I still play symphony and CV3. they still happened, and their timeline still exists. LoS does not infringe upon it in the way that say, Maverick Hunter X- replaces X1.
again though, LoS is not a retcon. it is an alternate timeline.
She was in Castlevania Legends for the gameboy. she was the first Belmont until IGA retconned her with Leon, and instead made Trevor the first to defeat Dracula.
She would have birthed Trevor with Alucard as the father, thus linking the Belmonts and the Tepes by blood. leon and sarah have nothing to do with Sonia and CV legends.
Leon was her replacement as first Belmont, with his betrothed Sarah, sacrificing her tainted soul after being bitten, to fuse it with the Whip of Alchemy, creating Vampire killer
AGAIN PEOPLE, LOS DOES NOT RETCON ANYTHING. AND DO NOTE, THAT LOS 2 WILL BE THE LAST LOS GAME BY COX AND MERCURYSTEAM. IT WILL BE A TRILOGY, BY COX AND THE LOS2 WEBSITE'S OWN ADMISSION
now with that out of the way, theres an actual trailer for Mirror of Fate.

Also, not that I can remember, it just had Trevor as a side character. It didnt do much other than redesign him and give him a voice and such
