Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls is the next title in the acclaimed series, although you'll have to play it on your phone this time around.
I fucking hate this company!!! #fuckkonami
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (PC, PS4, Xbox, Switch), by former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi, will scratch that proper-Castlevania itch. Spiritual successor to SOTN, and very nicely done. Yeah, Konami as we remember it doesn't exist anymore. Such a shame, on them.
Blasphemous just came out thankfully.
Going for the billions of smartphones out there.
We haven’t gotten a proper Castlevania game for a while now and this fucking trash-ass company continues to use these iconic IPs as cash grabs!!!! Fuck Konami with a sand paper 🍆
I'm on board. I'll take classic Castlevania gameplay however I can get it. In my veins, preferably.
You really think a mobile title is going to have classic Castlevania gameplay?
More publishers are embracing it, so more titles are going to be mobile-only. Including our beloved classic franchises. I think classic gamers would probably do well to get used to playing on their phones.
Honestly, that looked rather like classic Castlevania gameplay to me... but I, well, don't really think it will be. If it's on phone its compromised somehow... I cannot even fathom how a control scheme would work in such a title.
"so more titles are going to be mobile-only" More like there will be more mobile spin-offs. But the real games will stay on consoles/PC.
This does not look like a spin off. This looks like the next chapter. Maybe they will port it to switch and consoles
Shill account with 3 total comments, 2 of which were in this thread. What's your job title at Konami?
Yay, just what everyone wanted...
A new Castlevania game and it's on mobile wow that blows.
Why?! This hurts... :/
Didn't Konami say that they want to get back into AAA gaming development or something similar? So this is it in their eyes? 🤦♂️
I'll spends hours on end playing a proper Castlevania game. I will spend 5-10 minutes once or twice a day max playing a phone game. If this were on consoles or PC i would be interested.
What a shame...
I think it looks great and the coop would be awesome. Hopefully it isn't a cash grab game with paywalls and some sort of horrible, gimmicky controls (already worse than being on a mobile). I'm in the middle of SOTN on my PSX Classic and tight controls is what makes these games.
I don't know how the hell people play this shit on a touch screen, you would need a controller extension which defeats the purpose of mobile.
I’ll just wait for the next Castlevania pachinko machine.
This looks terrible ive seen better looking wii games.
Konami continues abusing the IPs they own with mess like this
"We're still focused on AAA console games"
