New Castlevania for GBA

Konami announces Castlevania: White Night Concerto for the Game Boy Advance.


On Wednesday, Konami Computer Entertainment announced Castlevania: White Night Concerto, the latest Castlevania game for the Game Boy Advance. The game takes place in 1740, and it lets players assume the role of Jeust Belmont, a vampire hunter who continues the bloodline of the Belnades family, which was first introduced in Castlevania III with the character Sypha Belnades. The story begins when Jeust's friends Maxim Quicin and Liddy Erlanger are kidnapped and taken to Count Dracula's castle.

The game's format will be similar to that of Circle of the Moon, requiring players to venture around the castle and use the whip and auxiliary weapons like the holy water, the cross, and the dagger to defeat the enemies within. Players can also find spell books, which they can use to power their weapons up. Ayami Kojima, the artist who worked on Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania Chronicles, will be responsible for character designs in the game. Castlevania: White Night Concerto for the Game Boy Advance is slated for a June 6 release in Japan. A North American release has yet to be announced.
