Konami has announced the official release date for Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, as well as news about DLC for the title, which will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade as part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade event on Xbox Live.
The title, which was previously rumoured due to leaks, is a multiplayer game that has a group of players tackle multiple maps in a 2D graphical style similar to the Symphony of the Night-styled games in the series. The game is being designed by series veteran Koji "Iga" Igarashi.
Castlevania: Harmony of Despair will be released on August 4 for 1200 MS Points, which is equivalent to 15 USD. Konami stated that extra characters and stages will be released as DLC, but they did not state how much they would be.
