Konami's Creating A New Castlevania, But It's Not Coming To Consoles

While Konami hasn't announced a concrete release date for the game, a beta is expected for Japanese players.

Grimoire of Souls was recently announced by Konami for iOS, and it's a sidescrolling game that features legacy characters from the series.

However, a single letter delivered to Genya Arikado tried to put an end to that peaceful era.

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. Protagonist Genya Arikado soon receives a letter that declares "The Grimoire has run wild and Count Dracula will be resurrected", so he sets off straight for the sender. But someone is intent on disturbing that peace, sending the main character, Genya Arikado, on a long and risky journey, fraught with enemies and mysteries.

Like Metal Gear Survive, Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls looks like a departure from the series norms, but we'll have to wait and see if this game is more of a success.

The site also introduces some characters new to the franchise, including Aruma Genta, who stands as "the main character of this work", along with his support Lucy. The extent of their involvement in the game isn't clear at this time, but it's likely that some of them will factor into the story while others will be there as side characters. It is her laboratory that Mr. Arima is staying. Other franchise regulars such as Simon Belmont, Alucard, Charlotte, Shanoa, and Maria will also be making appearances, as well as music from previous entries.
