............

Well at least we have the Netflix series second season to look forward to soon, I am going to assume this is what the Castlevania Switch project ended up turning into instead. My hopes of them announcing an actual Castlevania game this E3 just went down the drain.

Translations here:

https://gematsu.com/2018/04/castlevania-grimoire-of-souls-announced-for-ios

■ Story

A future where Count Dracula has been completely destroyed. It seemed like eternal peace came upon the world.

However, a single letter delivered to Genya Arikado tried to put an end to that peaceful era.

In order to verify the meaning of the words written in the letter—“The Grimoire has run wild and Count Dracula will be resurrected”—Genya Arikado heads off towards the letter’s sender…

■ System

Exhilarating battles where up to four players can cooperate. Strengthen your favorite character and take on the powerful enemies that block your path forward!


Characters

The protagonist of Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls is Genya Arikado, and Lucy plays the role of his support. You can also use characters from previous Castlevania titles with an emphasis on pairs.

Genya Arikado

A mysterious character who belongs to a top-secret Japanese government agency. Currently, only a handful of people know his true identity as the only being with the power to fight against Dracula. While he has unworldly good looks, he is unsociable and difficult to approach.

Lucy

A female researcher who works for a research organization in the fight against Dracula. Despite her young age, she is a highly competent research magician and supports Arikado and company in battle through the Grimoire. Arikado and company are staying at her laboratory.

Other characters incldue:

Alucard
Simon
Charlotte
Shanoa
Maria

First Erotic Violence and now this? Dracula didn't die for this.

He didn't, but I think this beats Erotic Violence any day. At least it's a real game, if not the truly fresh entry we're all hoping for.

The only thing my mind told me was: "Whee~ New art!" the end.
I'm grabbing those pictures, before they die in the depths on the net after a few years.

Well, still better than erotic violence.

Ok, how much do you think they'd charge for this?

The Arikado one is new.

And it's funny, they put Soma, but he's not there.

I'm betting it will have a highly exploitative gacha system that practically requires players to whale.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

You are now reading this in Robert Belgrade's voice.

Then Lords of Shadow 2 just takes a big, semi-solid, smelly, pea-green dump all over everything.

"Headmaster Arikado"

I'm liking the art, though.

The Arikado one is new.

Also, Classic Simon.

In fact, looking at them I'd say they're all new, despite being obviously Kojima's designs for HD.

I am going to assume this is what the Castlevania Switch project ended up turning into instead.

Not trying to sound like an asshole, but I'm pretty sure people deluded themselves on that interview. Not one second of it there's anything about "Castlevania Switch". Dude left it extremely vague and open, and people bit the news like they were confirmation.

The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

A bitchin' piece of art "hidden" on the website (you can only see part of it on the "story" box, but it's actually bigger). Lots of familiar faces :P

Woah, color me excited.  I think this could actually be incredibly cool.  Looks like a more complete harmony of despair.  Time to get an iPad.

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.

I’m pretty sure this is all new art. Some of it looks similar but I think it’s mostly new. Not sure about the Maria art though.

But I am interested in seeing more
What a horrible night to have a curse!
