It's getting kind of bothersome that this is still not out in the U.S... I mean what exactly could be holding them up?  Need to take out a bunch of "eh's" from the dialogue or what?

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.

Maybe they'd rather have the complete story ready before U.S. launch?

The game could also be tied up due to the current political climate. It's a bit of a stretch but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Usually mobile games "soft launch" in regions to test servers and audience engagement. They can last for a month or two. Pokemon Masters did something similar.

I will say I'm kinda shocked they didn't release it worldwide in October. You'd figure the month where people dress up as vampires and zombies at the end of it would have a Castlevania release too.

So like... What's the record for length of time between a soft and full launch?

Usually for games, one to two months.

GoS obviously missed that, but I supposed Konami wants the game to be feature rich before a worldwide launch. If their metric is finding a way to get whales with the way the game is now, I doubt that will be happening soon.

So maybe they're waiting to release this with season 3 on Netflix?

I genuinely have no idea what the hell they're doing with this game. It's been datamined for more summonable assist characters and chapters and there's no global release in site. If they don't release it when the Netflix season drops, I have no idea if it will even get a worldwide release.

What if this is really it? That they decided to just settle with a...Canadian release and call it a day? This would force all of the diehards to migrate to one server which would greatly lower costs for a largely niche series having a very very grindy mobile game.

I believe Chapter 6 of the game came out, so for those interested in the story and lore, you have more to look forward to.

Again, remarkable that this still has yet to have a worldwide release...

I really hope this game has an offline mode so that when the server inevitably stops serving because they’re done with the game, there’s still something to do.  Would suck if they released it and then pulled the plug a few months later just as I was getting into it.

Really? Nobody seems to be talking about it in the Discord group.

That's my problems with online-games in general. I do not want to spend the time to build something up, only for it to vanish inevitably some years down the line.

I definitely hate this about online gaming as well. At least with Phantasy Star online 1 and 2 this was not the case. I can still play those any time I chose without having to worry about some unknown server system shutting down any time soon. It's a shame that all online games nowadays aren't doing what PSO did. It's really wasteful.

The game is shutting down in September.
