Konami Has Announced a New Castlevania Game, But It's Mobile Only


Konami has announced Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, a new action game entry in the Castlevania series for iOS devices. In order to find out the meaning to these words, Genya sets out to meet the letter's sender.

Grimoire translates to "a book of magic spells and invocations".

Exhilarating battles where up to four players can cooperate. However, secret agent Genya Arikado receives a letter that informs him that Dracula will soon be resurrected. He's from a top-secret Japanese agency with a secret identity of his own. It also seems to be a multiplayer/co-op version of Castlevania where players are encouraged to play with their friends in co-op or competitive sessions. I'm cautiously optimistic about Grimoire of Souls, although, of course, it will all come down to how the game plays.

In addition to what appears to be more traditional Castlevania gameplay, there will also be classic music from the series and appearances by a bunch of familiar characters. And it sounds like you can revive your allies that have fallen with an ability called Soul Resurrection.

The game features exciting fights for up to four players, real-time global co-op, 4v4 competitive mode, lovely graphics and music from previous Castlevania-games. Despite her young age, she is a highly competent research magician and supports Arikado and company in battle through the Grimoire.
