Konami Digital Entertainment, with a statement made today Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls
announced that its new game will soon be released exclusively to Apple Arcade, Apple’s subscription-based gaming service with more than 2000 Premium games. With this service, Apple offers its users a powerful collection that includes not only new games, but also the games that have received awards and managed to enter the most popular of all time in the App Store, completely ad-free and free of charge.
Based on the classic 2D action that Castlevania fans know and love, and featuring 60 different levels, Grimoire of Souls will give users the opportunity to choose one of five of Castlevania’s beloved heroes, each with their own unique abilities. These characters are Alucard, whom we know and love from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Simon Belmont, the unforgettable hero of the original Castelvania, Maria Renard, the daredevil vampire wizard of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Charlotte Aulin, the famous witch of Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin or Castlevania: Shanoa, queen of symbols from the Order of Ecclesia.
Players will be able to master the character that best suits their playstyle, or browse through each character and choose to use the one that best suits the level in front of them. There will also be daily/weekly missions in the game.
Series creators Ayami Kojima and Michiru Yamane were also involved in the development of Grimoire of Souls. Known for his work on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, and other Castlevania games, Kojima has designed new and key characters introduced in Grimoire of Souls. Yamane, who created unforgettable melodies for Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Genso Suikoden III, composed the main theme of the game.
