Konami announces Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night
Konami has surprised us all by dropping news of a new Castlevania game for iPod Touch and iPhone today. It looks like a Columns or Puzzle Fighter clone, and I don’t own either platform, so it looks like I’ll be passing on this one. Konami, I’d be pretty pleased to see an Android version of this as well so I can at least review the thing, even if it does seem like a really, really bad idea.
Screenshots and a press release follow below.
