Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls brings the vampire-hunting series back to iOS

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls brings the vampire-hunting series back to iOS

The catch is that the game is for iOS, with an official website that opened today.

Many gamers may be inclined to skip over a mobile entry in the series and maybe just rewatch the Castlevania Netflix show instead, but it actually sounds like there are some interesting plans for this one. A statement that I'm sticking by, as Konami unveils its latest stab at raiding Dracula's tomb, in Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls.

Although the general gameplay seems to be similar to the existing 2D entries it features real-time co-op with other players from "around the world" - which hopefully implies a Western release. That is until the protagonist gets a letter that marks the end of the peaceful era.

Players will be able to play as familiar Castlevania characters such as Alucard, Shanoa, Maria Renard, Charlotte Aulin and the legendary Simon Belmont.




The last title in the series was 2014's Lords Of Shadow 2, and with publisher Konami's shift to mobile gaming in recent years, it seems there are no plans for a new console title.

While Konami hasn't announced a concrete release date for the game, a beta is expected for Japanese players. The game will allow solo play but also allow cooperative play between up to four players. You'll moslty control the main character, Genya Arikado.

While he has unworldly good looks, he is unsociable and hard to approach. LucyA female researcher who works for research institution of v. Dracula. For instance, Lucy is a proficient magic user while Arikado is more of a melee fighter. It is her laboratory that Mr. Arima is staying. It's only available in Japan for now, although Konami is teasing a global release sooner rather than later.
