Konami: Two Castlevania Games, One Brand-New

Good news from Konami, perpetrators of such atrocities as Metal Gear Solid, Dance Dance Revolution, and Castlevania. They are preparing to release yet another--nay, two--new games in the Castlevania franchise. Well technically only one new game, since one of them is just a port of Gameboy Advance's Aria of Sorrow. The other new one, called Castlevania: Order of Shadows, is fully, completely, and totally original, and even comes with an all-new whip-wielding member of the family, Desmond Belmont. Looks like they need to update the timeline--again. But it's Castlevania, so whatever the fuck they do to the official history and timeline, it's cool. (Just no more 3D games pls.)

Well...sounds cool, right? Excited? Can't wait to whip the shit out of Dracula once more? Here's the letdown: these games are exclusively for mobile phones. Yes, an all-new, original, Belmont-centered Castlevania story...exclusively for mobile phones. I could care less for Aria of Sorrow, I have that for my Gameboy, but Order of Shadows...How cruel can you be? Also, do you even think you can profit from this?

Game launches September 18, 2007.
