Do they have any kind of release date for this one yet?

There're no apparently news about it, it kept silent since close beta finished

STILL no further information? I have a bad feeling about it as someday the develop of this game would be overshadowed by anything to the day even they themselves forgot about it if they never made it clear.

It doesn't seem like this game is on the "new product" list of the new revamped official page but the lazy collection does. The page background resembles the things used in promotions of this game though. Weird.

Gonna second this sentiment. It really does feel like Konami just... forgot they were making this.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

Maybe the beta test was a failure and Konami, being Konami, shoved this under the rug.

The more they shove things under the rug the more that little bump gets bigger and harder to ignore. They'll have to face that fact eventually.

Additionally, the fact the game went into a beta/network test, aren't those usually done when the game is closed to launch? For example, when Shin Megami Tensei Liberation did a beta/network test, it was only a few weeks later that it launched.

We're now over five months since the test with Grimoire of Souls. Was the feedback so bad that they realized nobody would stick around with the game?

Well here're some negative information after ALL these days and months: It was delayed to an "unidentified period" after March, 2020 as well as several other mobile games
I have a bad feeling about it...

hopefully its getting delayed because they decided to concentrate their resources on a “real” castlevania game, lol.

Seems like it was a typo. Now it says 2019:

Well well oh well.
Still it could be the doomsday of Castelbania for someone if in one instance the new lead producer of the series decided to crush the project altogether in a sudden

I have no hope for a 2019 launch window but I believe everything could be changed by the approx. time period of March 2020 they wrote as "typo" - even If it means including the worst situation possible.

I don't think there is any cause for alarm for the IP at large because a mobile game has been delayed.

2020 on fiscal reports on stuff like this could also mean for their fiscal year ending in 2020, so the latest is April 2020, IIRC. It could still be 2019.

It lives!  And it seems it will have at least some type of single player mode...  so it certainly shows up harmony of despair in that arena.

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.
