Konami announces new Castlevania game for iPhone
Japanese games developer Konami announced it will launch a brand new Castlevania game for iPhone – Grimoire of Souls. The upcoming game will star a new protagonist name Genya Arikado, a secret agent, who's accompanied by a mysterious magician, Lucy.

It appears that Grimoire of Souls will be exclusively available on the iOS, but that won't come as a surprise. Konami launched another iOS exclusive game called Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night some time ago.

The new game requires at least iOS 9 and iPhone 6S, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, or iPad Pro to run properly. Also, Konami opened the game for closed beta registrations, but only in Japan.

It's yet unclear whether or not Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls will be launched in the US, but considering the previous title was available internationally there's a high chance it will happen again.

Grimoire of Souls doesn't have a launch date yet, but the pre-registration deadline for the closed beta will expire at the end of the month. Konami also fired up an official website for the game where you can find screenshots and a bit of info about the two protagonists, Genya and Lucy.

Will this have controller support? That would be great.

This is great news for Castlevania fans, the game looks good. My only concern with games like this is the touch screen controllers, this could let the game down hopefully the the developers have something up their sleeves. Real Media Now Ltd
