New Castlevania Game Confirmed, Will Be Part Of XBLA's Summer Of Arcade

Microsoft's now-traditional "Summer of Arcade" continues next month, with a jam-packed schedule seeing the release of five new Xbox Live Arcade titles, among them a brand new Castlevania game from Konami.

That game is the previously-rumoured Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, which is not only a multiplayer side-scroller, but was also designed by series veteran - and whip fetishist - Koji "Iga" Igarashi.

The other four games due for release over five weeks, beginning in July, are Hydro Thunder Hurricane, Lara Croft & The Guardian Of Light, Limbo and Monday Night Combat.
