Many gamers may be inclined to skip over a mobile entry in the series and maybe just rewatch the Castlevania Netflix show instead, but it actually sounds like there are some interesting plans for this one.

Almost three years after Konami's latest Castlevania "title", the developer is back with a new entry.

Rounding out the cast of - possibly playable - characters are Castlevania mainstays like Alucard, Simon, Charlotte, Shanoa, and Maria.

"The grimoire went out of control, and Count Dracula has been revived", it said. It seemed like eternal peace came upon the world.

It all seems quite promising, but if you're desperate for a new Castlevania on consoles there is Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night from ex-Konami dev Koji "IGA" Igarashi.

However, with a letter that arrived under Araki Gensui, an end was going to be struck in the peaceful era. You can also use characters from previous Castlevania titles with an emphasis on pairs.

Underneath the unfocused, ramshackle design decisions and incomprehensible story there's a decent action game - but how much of it you're willing to endure for closure depends on how deeply entrenched you are into Lords of Shadow's lore.

Arika is the main protagonist of the story and he is a part of a government organization. Today, only a handful of people are known as their unique identity, as the only being with the ability of vs. Dracula.

Arikado will be supported in battle by the battle-mage Lucy, with Konami teasing co-operative play.

While news of a new Castlevania title is definitely welcome, Konami has yet to announce a release date, and are due to hold a closed beta test in Japan this May.
