If you don't feel like playing with Genya, you can take control of Alucard, Simon, Charlotte, Shanoa, or Maria, all characters from previous Castlevania games.

The story goes that after the defeat of Count Dracula, all seemed fine.

In terms of classic video game franchises on the Nintendo Switch, Konami brought Super Bomberman R which was one of the Switch's launch titles. In order to verify the meaning of the words written in the letter - "The Grimoire is unleashed, and Count Dracula will be resurrected" - Genya Arikado heads off towards the letter's sender. A sequel to the vivid reimagining of the 2010 reboot, Konami's latest whip-crackin' vampire hunting game was...a proper pain in the neck.

The introduction of new lore may be enough to get die hard Castlevania fans to check out this app, but that may not do the trick for everyone.

Konami describes the gameplay as "Exhilarating battles where up to four players can cooperate". Konami has not announced a release date for the game. Strengthen your favorite characters and challenge your mighty enemies to stand!

The protagonist Arika is a mysterious man part of an organization belonging to the government. There's also a 4v4 competitive mode to look forward to as the curtain raises on this new entry in the long-running Castlevania series. You can sign up for the beta on the game's website. Currently, only a handful of people know his true identity as the only being with the power to fight against Dracula.

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls is now exclusive to iOS devices and has a to-be-determined release date. Lucy is a female researcher that supports Arika in battles with magic.
