First off, I’d like to apologize for the lack of news lately. Exams, tests, studying… the list goes on. But with all that aside, let’s cut to the chase. Konami is releasing a Castlevania game for the iPhone, but no, it will not be a platformer or action-RPG like their NES versions or their newly announced Xbox 360 Castlevania Lords of Shadows.
In fact, it’s titled as a puzzle-RPG “on the go”. Whatever that means beats me, but the gameplay looks to be similar to SEGA’s Columns along with a bit of Dungeon Scroll hidden behind those retro screenshots. Konami describes the game as follows:
A first in the Castlevania series, Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night will employ a unique style of puzzle-RPG, allowing players to take on the role of Alucard, the son of Dracula. Players will also have the option to play as or against characters directly from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Developed exclusively for the iPhone and iPod touch, Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night drops players inside the walls of Dracula’s castle challenging them to solve puzzles in order to provide weapons and spells to aid players in their quest.
Attached to this post are screenshots for the upcoming game. We’ll have more information as they become available, but it’ll be pretty safe to say that this should be coming out anytime soon.
