Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance story details

[03.06.02] » Dracula displeased with current trend of losing, takes break.

   In a recent interview with Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi, Japanese gaming magazine Dengeki GameCube has uncovered an interesting fact concerning the series' newest Game Boy Advance installment. The series will be adopting the name Castlevania in Japan, to replace the original title "Akumajou Dracula" ("Demon Castle Dracula").

   The reason behind this, says Igarashi, is to break the series away from Dracula's name and lead the story into new directions. Harmony of Dissonance is not a spinoff title, as it will "fit into the big picture," plunging players into a new castle that may or may not belong to the Prince of Darkness, though is still populated by monsters and spirits that were awakened with him. Though Igarashi seems concerned with distancing the series from its prime antagonist, it was never mentioned during the interview that Dracula would not be present in the game.

   Dr. Wily was unavailable for comment.
