In a surprising turn of events, Konami announced that its canned Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls has been resurrected exclusively for Apple Arcade. The game was soft launched on Android and iOS about two years ago, but it was removed from the App Store in 2020.
Spotted by Gematsu, the official page of Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls now mentions that it will only release for iOS, tvOS, and Mac via Apple Arcade. Although no specific launch date has been revealed yet, Konami does say that we should expect the game to drop “soon.”
In Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, players will take the role of Alucard, Dracula’s son, in a new story that promises to bring together heroes of the past. The game is set in a world after Dracula has been sealed away and lets players unlock other iconic characters including Simon Belmont, Charlotte, Shanoa, and Maria.
Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls is a full-fledged side-scrolling action game that features 60 levels, a wide variety of equipment, as well as daily and weekly missions. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one and let you know when it’s available for download.
