Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls Launches on Apple Arcade

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls makes its Apple Arcade debut with a host of improvements.

There's a new Castlevania game in town — sort of — and it's only on Apple Arcade. Konami released Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls on Apple's game subscription platform, an enhanced re-release of the original Grimoire of Souls with a number of improvements, including new unlockables and better progression systems.

Grimoire of Souls on Apple Arcade features newly voiced and cinematic cutscenes, along with enhanced weapon systems, and the option to customize characters with a number of additional outfits.

These characters span the Castlevania franchise, headlined by Alucard from Symphony of the Night. Soundtracks are among some of the unlockables in Grimoire of Souls, and you won't be able to find these on Spotify either. The game has its own new soundtrack from Michiru Yamane.

It's not the only time Castlevania made the news this week. A second rating for the as-yet-unannounced Castlevania Advanced Collection popped up on the Taiwanese rating boards before quickly being removed.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
