Konami has today announced that Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls will be coming soon exclusively to Apple Arcade. Featuring the classic 2D action Castlevania fans know and love, Grimoire of Souls offers players a variety of ways to tackle each of its 60 stages. There are five playable characters that include well-loved heroes from Castlevania’s back catalogue, each with their own unique abilities.
Gamers can play as the following characters:
- Alucard, best known from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
- Simon Belmont from the original Castlevania.
- Maria Renard from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood.
- Charlotte Aulin from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.
