Castlevania DS release date

Get cracking this September.

Konami has confirmed the official release date for forthcoming DS title, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.

After UK chain store Game put up a very specific September 16th posting to get us frothing for the platform adventure, Konami was all too happy to confirm that as the official date for the promising title. Barring any slips, that is.

Developed and set after the critically acclaimed Game Boy Advance prequel, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, this DS follow-up has hero Soma Cruz taking on a mysterious cult (yes, another one) in their plan to resurrect Dracula (yes, again.) The game uses the touch screen to cast spells, while the DS' wireless connection allows 'souls' to be traded between machines to unleash new attacks.
