Konami is working on Castlevania: Grimoire of Shadow for iOS – a four-player co-op title that starts a closed beta in Japan around mid-May.
Gematsu has translated the game’s official page, which describes a future in which Dracula has been destroyed. However, protagonist Genya Arikado has received a mysterious letter that warns that the Count will be resurrected.
Up to four-players can work together (the game features different modes), including the ability to resurrect one another, with “an emphasis on pairs.” Characters such as Simon, Alucard, Charlotte, Shanoa, and Maria, from previous Castlevania titles are available to play.
The game supports global co-op, so hopefully we’ll hear of a localized version soon.
