How do you know it has a single-player mode? Google Translate is not helping me with finding that on the specific page for GoS.

Under the game description it says "* At the trial corner, two types of single-play tables and multi-player tables will be prepared."
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13104670/1/Castlevania-Birth-of-the-Dragon

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 assume Konami's thought proces regarding Castlevania these past couple of years was this:

"We took a risk with Lords of Shadow but it didn't bring in the big bucks like we hoped. Harmony of Despair did well, despite being made on a shoestring budget. Let's try to recapture that succes except let's do it on mobile since we restructured our entire company to focus on that. "

Anyway, the game itself looks nothing special but I admit I'm looking forward to what kind of fan service is going to show up. They seem to do a pretty good job in that department, so I hope it's enjoyable on that level.

Looks significantly better than Harmony of Despair, which was minimally servicable... but I am just stoked that we are back in the classic timeline.  A lot of people were convinced that would never happen.  It's been a long 11 years...

I'm looking forward to this if for no other reason than a grindy mobile Harmony of despair that's actually a  Castlevania will be fun for me.

Everything still says "TBD" on the site, have they put out any info I may have missed RE a release date?

Lucy: You must be Alucard...! Thank you for coming!

Death: Ah, Alucard. What is your business here? (same dialogue from SotN).

Maria: Ugh... The monster's power suddenly increased.

I'm liking the new art style of the graphics -- like a very purposeful halfway between Dawn and Portrait's anime style and Ayami Kojima's classic romantic Victorian gothic glamour.  And it looks like, egads, they may have actually put some semblance of effort into this! I wasn't all that interested before, but I am now.

Guess the trailer did its job!
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.

Not sure if it's worth a new thread, but the game is available on the Canadian Google Play Store.
