Set just a year after the events of Aria of Sorrow on Gameboy Advance, where a cult decided to resurrect the fallen Dracula and the evil that follows, the legendary Castlevania series continues, this time showing the incredible sprite pushing 2D power of the NDS. As either Soma Cruz or later Julius Belmont or Yoko, each with their own individual gameplay styles, you must infiltrate enemy territory and stop the evil of Dracula's resurrection from happening. The upper screen displays a map and character data, while the lower view is where the full on action you can see in the trailer below goes. The touch screen also comes into play with a new ability where gamers can "shatter" weak bricks with their finger or stylus, or learn and draw magical seals to defeat enemy creatures.
Further making use of the NDS, there's two different wireless modes, the first of which lets you trade soul abilities between systems. The second is a multiplayer versus mode, where one gamer builds a level by filling areas of the castle with their enemies of choice, and then race each other through it. With multiple endings, both good and bad, and gameplay additions like Weapon Synthesis mode, where Yoko will combine your weapon with a soul to create new items, get ready to sink your teeth into another Castlevania classic, due in stock this week.
