The next Castlevania game will be on mobile.

Specifically, in the seventh game, the Jets take a 3-1 lead on Boston with a power play goal from Conn Smythe victor Patrik Laine. The Predators lineup is filled with talent that most teams dream about, consisting of Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson , and P.K.

Players will be able to play as familiar Castlevania characters such as Alucard, Shanoa, Maria Renard, Charlotte Aulin and the legendary Simon Belmont. It seemed like an eternal peace came upon the world. Protagonist Genya Arikado soon receives a letter that declares "The Grimoire has run wild and Count Dracula will be resurrected", so he sets off straight for the sender. It read that the grimoire went out of control and Count Dracula lives again. The game looks to have traditional 2D-style Castlevania visuals in mind, which is good news.

Konami describes the gameplay as "Exhilarating battles where up to four players can cooperate". In addition to the new story, Grimoire of Souls also plans to win mobile gamers over with some interesting multiplayer features. Strengthen your favorite character and take on the powerful enemies that block your path forward! He'll be partnered with Lucy, a skilled magician working for a research organization. There may be some catches as to when and how players can use each character, but those details are unclear at this point.

While this could have been much, much worse, it's another reminder that Konami really doesn't seem to be interested in releasing a significant new Castlevania title for consoles. Although there is no official release date for the title, you can opt-in for the Japanese closed beta right here.
