New leaks regarding a new, 2D Castlevania game appear online

Post  Terra on Sat May 01, 2010 4:52 pm

As I'm sure a lot of people are currently aware, Konami are in the process of making a full retail 3D Castlevania game for the Xbox 360 and PS3 called Lord Of Shadows. However, series producer Koji Igarashi has no involvement with this game which has led to speculation about just what he's been up to. Recently though, a new trademark, “Harmony Of Despair” appeared from Konami. Due to the style of the name, it's believed that the trademark is for a new Castlevania, possibly explaining just what he's been up to.

Today however, in a (Now removed) article on Never Know Tech (Which was reposted on NeoGaf), Screenshots were released, and supposed details regarding the new game have surfaced. Apparently, this will be released for the XBLA, and will be the first HD 2D game ever for the series.


It also appears that the game will retain the “Metroidvania” style of Castlevania games and there will be a large focus on multiplayer as well, with up to 6 people able to play at once in a co-op mode, with available characters supposed to include Soma Cruz, from Aria of Sorrow and Dawn of Sorrow), the son of Dracula himself, Alucard from Symphony of the Night, Jonathan Morris and Charlotte Aulin from Portrait of Ruin, and Shanoa from Order of Ecclesia.

Later on, even more information was supposedly revealed to Joystiq about the game, saying that there will be a “Fighting Style” versus mode for multiplayer. Hopefully, if this is true, Igarashi has learned from the disaster that was Castlevania Judgement.

While nothing is officially confirmed, the screens at least provide some evidence to back up these rumors. Konami have said nothing at all regarding the game, but it's only a matter of time before they provide some clarification.
