For fans of the Castlevania series – there is good news and bad news. The good news is that Konami is working on a new title for the mobile device, the bad news so far is that it’s only going to be released in Japan (for now).

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls is set to be released in Japan for the iOs sometime in late 2018. According to Alistair Wong of Siliconera, the game will have a 2D-style design and is expected to be heavily influenced by classic titles while the gameplay will feature four player co-op and competitive head-to-head modes.

The game will introduce two new characters along with the return of several iconic ones. Players will take on the role of Genya Arikado and his assistant Lucy while Simon Belmont along with Alucard will make an appearance.

There is no word regarding a US release but given the successes of the Netflix series, one could be expected. For now, you could check out our review of Castlevania in case you missed it.
