Castlevania makes a return with Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, out now on the Playstation Network. The game is the brainchild of the legendary producer, Koji Igarashi, who includes several Castlevania titles, including Symphony of the Night, on his impressive resume. Players will control several famed characters from the series with six player multiplayer available. Konami also announced that the PSN release will include the ‘Beauty, Desire, Situation Dire’ Map pack, which includes the Pyramid of Ruin level, as well as additional characters Julius Belmont and Yoko Belnades.

Here is what Konami had to say about the release:

Castlevania Harmony of Despair features the classic renowned fast paced, 2D side-scrolling action the series is known for, as vampire hunters from throughout the series come together to return Dracula to his eternal slumber. Joining forces with friends, up to 6 players can explore massive levels inspired by the worlds of Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia via online co-op play.

With a combo attack system that allows players to unleash devastating attacks and fight the forces of darkness, Castlevania Harmony of Despair also enables gamers to discover hidden locations, special items, and equipment to help in their quest. Fearless players can also engage in competitive Survival Mode with friends, while the best players on the leaderboard can upload replay data and share their information. Featuring detailed 2D art and follow-up downloadable content for new characters and levels, Castlevania Harmony of Despair unleashes an unforgettable Castlevania experience for PlayStation fans.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
