The Inner Cells is a location in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. It is the eighth area Simon explores.


The Inner Cells are a continuation of the same prison theme. After more trouble with Skeleton Warriors and box-pushing, he'll spot the Spirit of Schneider lurking in an unreachable cell; he'll have no choice but to instead drop down into the prison's dreary lower levels, where more skeleton warriors await.

After a hopefully quick squeeze through a rocky tunnel (where the falling rocky debris serves as a warning that a zombies arm will reach through and grab onto those who loaf about), he'll continue the descent to find a locked gate to the left, and an elevator to the right. For now, his only option is the elevator, which takes him down into the next area. Simon can return here later, via a Teleporter, and use a newer weapon to procure the Spirit of Schneider; the path that lay beyond features an increased enemy assortment and leads to a lower level of the Kitchen.

Mirror of Fate
Subjected to putrefaction over many years, some zombies have become lethal corpses capable of mutilating themselves to reach their prey.
