Konami announced today that they’re bringing their beloved Castlevania franchise to the iPhone and iPod Touch in the form of Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night. We can already feel your disappointment at not getting a “true” Castlevania game, but let’s hear them out.
Described as a “puzzle-RPG”, Castlevania Puzzle puts you in the vampire-slaying boots of Alucard, the hero of Symphony of the Night, and has you play puzzles to to earn weapons and spells to aid you in your quest. Details about what the quest is haven’t been released yet, but we suspect it involves the killing of Dracula. Call it a hunch. At any rate, the game will also allow you to do puzzle battles as or against other characters from Symphony of the Night.
No date or price has been announced, but Konami says Castlevania Puzzle will hit the App Store soon.
