Originally released by Konami on XBLA in October 2010, the 2D action game is settling on a release date, though only the month is known now. Sometime in September, Playstation 3 owners will finally get their crack at the multiplayer-enabled adventure.
In Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, classic vampire hunters from throughout the series come together in order to destroy a host of demonic bosses. Joining forces with friends, up to six players can explore massive levels inspired by the worlds of classic Castlevania titles such as Dawn of Sorrow , Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia via the game’s co-op functionality – either online or offline. As players employ their cooperative skills to unleash devastating attacks and fight the forces of darkness, they can discover hidden locations, special items and equipment to help in their quest.
Purchasing the game on PSN will also net players with free DLC, in the form of the ‘Beauty, Desire, Situation Dire’ map pack, and two additional characters; Julius Belmont and Yoko Belnades.
