New Castlevania Game Announced by Konami

17 April 2018

The next "Castlevania" game will be a four-player mobile game for iOS devices, developer-publisher Konami announced today.

However, a letter sent to Genya Arikado spelt the end of that peaceful age. However, that peace is threatened after the protagonist, Genya Arikado, receives a letter reading, "The Grimoire has run wild and Count Dracula will be resurrected".

But someone is intent on disturbing that peace, sending the main character, Genya Arikado, on a long and unsafe journey, fraught with enemies and mysteries. He's from a top-secret Japanese agency with a secret identity of his own. This will be the first new Castlevania game since 2014's Lord of Shadows 2 for PC and consoles.

As you can see, the graphics look quite good, if a little antiseptic, but there's also a four-player boss rush mode and a separate four-player competitive mode. I get that. But a well done side-scrolling Castlevania title for Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One would do fantastic well I assume.
