Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls announced for iOS

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls announced for iOS

SystemExhilarating battles where up to four players can cooperate. According to the website the game takes place in a future where Dracula has been completely destroyed and peace reigns.

At the moment of this writing, the release date is still to be determined. A statement that I'm sticking by, as Konami unveils its latest stab at raiding Dracula's tomb, in Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls. Selected testers will be contacted by e-mail around mid-May.

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.

However, a single letter delivered to Genya Arikado tried to put an end to that peaceful era. "Dracula will be resurrected". Strengthen your favourite characters and challenge your mighty enemies to stand! It will also have 4v4 PVP, Boss Rush mode, and features some gorgeous character portraits and artwork.

Of course, this is Konami we're talking about here, so there's bound to be catch: Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls is slated to be an iOS-exclusive title.

At this point we'd be shocked if Konami ever committed to making another big, or even medium, budget Castlevania game on consoles.
