Two months back we scented the rumor that Castlevania was due for downloadable content, specifically a new map set inside a pyramid. That's confirmed with today's availability of "Beauty, Desire Situation Dire," for 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live Marketplace.

"Beauty, Desire Situation Dire," (may I call you BDSD?) is the first extra map for the side-scrolling Xbox Live Arcade title. A release says players will explore an ancient Egyptian pyramid bathed in psychedelic art, facing a "femme fatale boss, Ashtarte, with the sole intent of breaking your soul into oblivion."

The same statement said that Julius, Maria and Yoko will be coming soon as playable characters.

Bwgmon

I loved this game when I first got it, can't really say the same now.

I just got so fucking tired of every server being filled with people that don't know how to use anything other than Yasutsuna/Valmanway as Soma/Alucard or the Skull Ring/Astral Ring combo on Charlotte.

God forbid that a boss battle be at least mildly challenging.
