Castlevania: HOD confirmed for PSN

Multiplayer side-scroller out next month.

Last year's multiplayer take on the 2D Castlevania bloodline, Harmony of Despair, comes to PlayStation Network some time next month, Konami has announced.

It's the same game that launched on Xbox Live Arcade last summer, though PlayStation 3 users get the Beauty, Desire, Situation Dire map pack for free as an added purchase incentive.

The add-on includes the Pyramid of Ruin level and additional playable characters Julius Belmont and Yoko Belnades.

Despite the series' near-flawless heritage, reviewers didn't take to Konami's ambitious attempt to broaden its scope, least of all Eurogamer's John Teti. Check out his Harmony of Despair review for more details.
