A Castlevania game is coming to Apple Arcade soon with the impending release of Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls announced this week by Konami. We know the game will be available for iOS, tvOS, and Mac devices when it launches on Apple's gaming platform, but we don't yet know when it'll release beyond a "coming soon" release window. No plans to release the game on platforms other than Apple Arcade have been announced at this time.
If this game sounds familiar, it's probably because you heard about it years ago whenever Konami first announced it. the game officially launched in September 2019, but work on the game was discontinued less than a year later when it was shut down. People expected this soft-launched game to end there, but it appears that wasn't the end of its saga.
Over on the Konami site, the game's been advertised with the "Coming Soon" release plans for Apple Arcade. It was previously announced for Google Play devices years ago, but it appears its revival will be limited to Apple's platform.
The trailer above released when the game was announced gives a look at the game and some of the memorable characters within. A rundown of the game's features can be found below courtesy of its Apple Arcade page.
