Konami released a trailer Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night this afternoon, and man, is it ever just sort of Castlevania! That’s not a slight against the game – but when the trailer touts it as “The FIRST Castlevania game on the iPhone”, it’s hard not to respond with a “yeah, but not really.”
Misplaced licensing aside, the game actually seems pretty damn neat. The gameplay looks like Puyo Puyo with Puzzle Fighter‘s junk system on top of it, wrapped around a Puzzle Quest-style metagame. If you feel the same way we do about all the games in that last sentence, you’re probably looking forward to playing this one as much as we are. Konami hasn’t given a date yet, but look for Castlevania Puzzle in the app store sometime soon.
