Castlevania: Grimoire of Shadow Announced

The vampire-hunting series returns… on iOS.

A new Castlevania title has been announced, with Grimoire of Shadow coming iOS. The game was revealed on its official website, with the details translated by Gematsu, and while an iOS release might seem like less than ideal news for some, the game has up to four-player co-op, including a competitive mode, and a brand new story for the series. Grimoire of Souls is set in a “future where Count Dracula has been completely destroyed”.

Of course, the newfound peace doesn’t last long, with the protagonist of the story Genya Arikado receiving a letter telling him “The Grimoire has run wild and Count Dracula will be resurrected.” The biggest draw is the global real-time four-player co-op. There’s also a four-versus-four competitive mode, and four-player co-op boss rush.

Lucy (no last name), a research magician who’s pretty nifty at her job “despite her young age” joins Genya Arikado, but players can also use characters from the previous games in the series, including Alucard, Simon, Charlotte, Shanoa, and Maria, “with an emphasis on pairs.” The latter point isn’t elaborated on, but it sounds like players’ character choices are limited to specific pairs. The game will also include music from previous entries in the series.

There’s no release date yet, but there’s a Japanese beta test you can sign up for right here.
