A New Castlevania Game Coming for Apple Arcade!
The gothic action series Castlevania has been quiet for the past few years, except for an anime series on Netflix. However, this seems to be about to change. Developer Konami has announced a new game that will only come to Apple Arcade.
The new game is called Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls and is described as an original side-scrolling action game featuring a lineup of classic, much-loved characters from the series' hit catalogue. The graphics are a new page for the series, but both have contributed to the series since the iconic Symphony of the Night; There are some notable names, including character designer Ayami Kojima and composer Michiru Yamane. Grimoire of Souls doesn't have a release date, but Apple says it's coming soon.
Castlevania Name May Sound Familiar!
The name of the game may sound familiar to some. This is probably because Konami narrowly released a version of Grimoire of Souls in Canada last year before finalizing it later. That version included in-game payments, a feature not found in all Apple Arcade games, and was free to play.
The news comes at a pretty busy time for Apple's subscription games service. On Friday, the launch of the second installment of Fantasian, a classic RPG from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, came out. The music-focused Tetris Beat is also on the way.
