Game centering on Genya Arikado allows up to 4-player co-op

Konami revealed on Tuesday that it is developing a new smartphone game in the Castlevania series titled Akumajō Dracula Grimoire of Souls (Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls).

The game's official website is taking applications for a closed beta test for iOS device users, and applicants will be contacted in mid-May. Konami has not announced a release date for the game. The game will allow solo play but also allow cooperative play between up to four players.

The game's story is set in a future where Dracula seems to have been completely destroyed, and peace is almost upon the land. But Genya Arikado receives a letter that tells of an end to this new peace. It reads, "The Grimoire is loose. Dracula will be resurrected." In order to find out the meaning to these words, Genya sets out to meet the letter's sender.

The story focuses on Genya Arikado and his assistant Lucy, but familiar Castlevania characters such as Alucard, Simon, Charlotte, Shanoa, and Maria will also make appearances. The visual above also shows Soma Cruz.
