Konami is bringing a previously discontinued Castlevania mobile game to Apple Arcade.
Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls was originally announced in April 2018 and was ‘soft launched’ in Canada in September 2019.
However, a year later the game was discontinued, even before its release in another region.
Now Konami has announced that Grimoire of Souls is soon available exclusively on Apple Arcade, which apparently means it won’t have the in-app purchases of the original mobile version.
Grimoire of Souls is a classic Castlevania-style 2D game with 60 stages to go.
Players can choose from five playable characters from the history of Castlevania:
- Simon Belmont (Castlevania)
- Maria Renard (Rondo de sang)
- Alucard (Symphony of the Night)
- Charlotte Aulin (Portrait of the ruin)
- Shanoa (Order of Ecclesia)
According to the description of the game on the Apple Store, there will be a variety of equipment to collect, as well as daily and weekly missions. It’s also said that more playable characters are on the way.
The character design for the game was handled by Ayami Kojima, who had previously worked on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, while the main theme was composed by Michiru Yamane, who was also the composer of Symphony. of the Night.
It looks like Grimoire of Souls isn’t the only title Konami is resurrecting.
The Australian and South Korean classification commissions have given ratings to the Castlevania Advance Collection, a title not yet announced.
From the name, it appears to be a compilation of the three critically acclaimed Game Boy Advance titles in the series – Circle of the Moon, Harmony of Dissonance, and Aria of Sorrow.
