    Harmony of Despair spreads to PlayStation®Network

    KONAMI unleashes multi-player Castlevania: Harmony of Despair to online service

    Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it is to release Castlevania: Harmony of Despair for PlayStation®3 via the PlayStation®Network this September. Also added into this version for free is the "Beauty, Desire, Situation Dire" Map pack, which includes the Pyramid of Ruin level as well as additional characters Julius Belmont and Yoko Belnades.

    Castlevania: Harmony of Despair reunites players with the cast of memorable characters from the series. The new game features the series' renowned fast paced, 2D side-scrolling action, but introduces an all-new six-player online multi-player mode. The PlayStation®3 game also includes an offline multi-player mode for up to four players.

    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.

    Fearless players can even choose to engage in Survival Mode where friends compete against each other to determine the best slayer of evil. The best players on the leaderboard can also upload ghost data and share their information with friends. Featuring detailed 2D art and with plans in place for downloadable content for additional characters and levels, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair will provide next generation players a thrilling gaming experience coupled with the classic Castlevania ethos.

    Castlevania: Harmony of Despair will be available via PlayStation(R)Network in September.
