The Cursed Village is the first area that Simon explores in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, as well as the first overall area in the game.


Simon's quest begins at the outskirts of the Cursed Village, its woodland and residential features still suffering from a state of decay. Soon zombies will begin emerging from the ground, their violent demise earning Simon experience as the still-functioning tutorial explains.

Simon will then enter into a destroyed building and learn how to both pull and push boxes and turn switches; the events of a cut-scene that follow will earn him the Throwing Axe sub-weapon. More zombie-skewering remains before Simon learns how to destroy barrels and other debris, which in this case block a passage he must crouch through. The path quickly spills into the next area.

It was the elderly, then the men, women and children, until there was not a single person left standing. Not long after, the tombstones began to move. Neither the hard oak wood, nor the heavy stones of their graves could prevent the return of the dead to the world of the living. Fallen Knight Scroll

This is a perfect terror weapon for a barbarian but used with skill the axe can rip into strong armor and damage huge monsters. (...) Secondary Weapon

Special: The 'Charged' secondary attack allows Simon to throw a flaming axe which is much more damaging.



  • Since the Cursed Village is directly located near the Bernhard Family Castle (now in Dracula's possession), it is possible it's the ultimate fate of Wygol Village, especially as Carmilla and her monstrous forces had been brutalizing its population for years.
    • It is possible this area was Simon's former home after it was attacked by Dracula's forces 30 years ago.
