Konami Digital Entertainment, B.V. today announced that Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls will be coming soon, exclusively to Apple Arcade.

Initially announced in 2018, Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls has had a troubled period between soft launching in Canada, only to be pulled due to low interest. Now, a few years later, it has been resurrected for Apple Arcade.

Featuring the classic 2D action Castlevania fans know and love, Grimoire of Souls offers players a variety of ways to tackle each of its 60 stages through its five playable characters that include well-loved heroes from Castlevania's back catalogue, each with their own unique abilities. Gamers can play as Alucard, best known from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Simon Belmont from the original Castlevania, Maria Renard from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Charlotte Aulin from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, and Shanoa from Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.

Players will be challenged as they must choose between mastering the character that best suits their playstyle or learning them all to use the one that best suits each level. The game will also offer daily / weekly missions.

Furthermore, famous series contributors, Ayami Kojima and Michiru Yamane, have contributed their expertise to Grimoire of Souls. Kojima, revered for her work in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and other Castlevania titles, is behind the designs of key new characters introduced in Grimoire of Souls; Yamane, who created iconic melodies for Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, as well as Suikoden III, has composed the main theme.
