Mobile gaming is making its way to dreaded Castlevania and Count Dracula sometime in the near future. It’s called Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, an upcoming mobile game coming to iOS devices sometime soon. Right now, the game is going into “closed beta” testing in its native Japan, but hopefully a wider roll-out is supposed to be in the offing before too long.
For now, all we know about Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, besides the dictionary definition of the word “grimoire” (“a book of magic spells and invocations”), is that it cooperative play mode for up to four players. Also, the plot, which reportedly has to do having “been completely erased and peace has descended until… someone decides to resurrect the Count.” Bad idea, anonymous person who decides to resurrect Count Dracula, very bad idea.
Stay tuned for more details on Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, or whatever title the mobile Castlevania game ends up getting released under outside of Japan, in the near future.
