‘Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls’ from Konami Is Shutting Down Less than a Year after Soft Launching on iOS

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls for mobile is somthing Konami revealed a while ago. Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls is a mobile-exclusive entry that lets you play as characters from across the series’ history. It was originally only announced for Japan but it finally soft launched in Canada on the App Store after Konami confirmed a global release at the time. An in-game notice has confirmed that the game is shutting down in September which will be less than a year after it soft launched in Canada. Watch the trailer for Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls below:

Shaun tried Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls at TGS and was quite pleased with the overall package. We’ve had impressions from the soft launch in our forum thread as well and people seemed to be happy with the game. I remember a lot of people were angry about this not being just a port or something. Konami eventually brought Castlevania: Symphony of the Night to iOS and Android so there’s that. The game is closing down on September 9th at 8:00 AM CEST. Purchase of gems in-game has been disabled as of now as well. If you have a Canadian App Store account and still want to check it out before it closes down, use this link. It is also available on Google Play here. I’m pretty disappointed that Konami didn’t even give this a shot worldwide despite it having a localisation and a soft launch in Canada. Did you end up playing it?
