What are the chances that GoS got scrapped for this because of a (possibly) stronger playerbase in China?

Officially confirmed this is going to be a Castlevania title:



Google translate:

"The Castlevania series of Shengqu games, which inherited KONAMI, announced the official appointment for the new mobile game "Moonnight Rhapsody". Today, Shengqu Games (headquarters: Shanghai, China, legal representative: Jie Fei) announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Japanese game company Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. (  The following KONAMI) has reached a cooperation to develop a new mobile game "Moonnight Rhapsody" that inherits the world view of its Castlevania (Japanese name: 悪魔城ドラキュラ) series for the Chinese market.  KONAMI is one of Japan's most influential game development companies. It has produced many well-known game products such as "Contra" and "Red Room". Among them, the Castlevania series has a 34-year history.  Shengqu Games is currently fully."

Oh cool the official art depicts the girl as SOTN Maria with boobs.

Need to start thinking about some fanfiction for this.

She finally got her wish from Judgment.

"The Breast She Ever Had" better be a subtitle somewhere.

Tweet link to the trailer. Seems to confirm the cast from the test period are all still there, so we have weird shenanigans where Richter Belmont and Yoko Belnades exist in the same space at the same time.

The original character and presumably, the protagonist, is a vampire hunter by the name of...Elvis? Guess it's supposed to be Ives, but man. This month has been brutal to be a Castlevania fan.

Looks like more mobile crap, though.
Perhaps GoS was just a test run and they are cancelling it for this one?
All those lost assets may get their use back, eventually, perhaps.

I don't understand what is happening.

Konami cancelled/ended services for Grimoire of Souls, only to announce another game that looks just like it? What am I missing? Is this game specifically for Chinese markets only? If so, why make a whole different game instead of translating GoS?

Naw, see. Grimoire had gross loli Maria as a playable character. This game has spicy grown up Maria as the playable character.

Totally different games.

I'm 100 % convinced that they cancelled Grimoire of Souls for this, to reuse assets and focus on the Chinese market.

What the actual hell, Konami.

I can't believe I once thought GoS was the bottom of the barrel.
