Today Konami revealed a whole boatload of information on Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, the first title from the vampire-slaying series to be released exclusively over the Xbox Live Arcade.
The title, which is a next-gen take on the classic 2D Castlevania style, will be released on August 4th for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) as part of the Summer of Arcade program. The latest iteration of the series, and the first to be released exclusively for Xbox LIVE will feature both 6-player cooperative play and a survival mode, so you can either work with, or attempt to outlast your friends as you fight through waves of vampires.
Harmony of Despair will also feature some homages to classic titles in the series, with "fan favorite" characters from throughout the series in addition to levels inspired by Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia.
So, if you're in the mood for giving the undead the eternal rest we all know they deserve, be on the lookout for Castlevani: Harmony of Despair when it comes out August 4th.
