Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin Announced
Another one for the DS
Konami announced a new Castlevania game today, exclusive to the DS. Titled Portrait of Ruin, the latest installment in the series will allow players to control two different characters.
Set during World War II, souls lost during the great conflict wander the Earth and under the command of two mysterious vampire sisters, they attempt to resurrect Dracula's Castle. Vampire hunter Jonathan Morris and magic user Charlotte Orlean decide that it is up to them to work together in order to prevent this catastrophe.
The two different characters can be switched freely during gameplay, as each one carriers their own unique list of strengths, abilities, and weaknesses. A variety of summon spells will be available, where both characters combine their power to unleash a powerful attack on one of the game's 100+ enemies. Numerous weapons, equipment, and items can also be found throughout the game, as is the series' standard.
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin should see a release sometime in the fall.
