E3 10: Castlevania: Harmony of Despair confirmed for XBLA

Jun 14 // Jordan Devore

In announcing the next "Summer of Arcade" line-up for Xbox LIVE Arcade, Microsoft has confirmed the existence of the heavily rumored Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. Six-person co-op was mentioned in the Internet rumblings, but is that really the case? Let's find out:

This fast-paced 2-D side scroller takes vampire hunters on a chase to bring Dracula, the Lord of Darkness, to his eternal slumber. Designed by the producer of the legendary Castlevania series, Koji Igarashi, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair allows friends to play together via online co-op story mode or duke it out to see who the best vampire hunter is in Survival Mode.

Looks like the leaks were correct! No new pictures have been shown yet, but we'll keep an eye out.

Additionally, here are the other "Summer of Arcade" games: Hydro Thunder Hurricane, Lara Croft and the Guardian of the Light, Limbo, and Monday Night Combat. Can't say that I'm feeling Lara Croft so much; the remaining bunch is highly relevant to my interests, however.

[Update: Added pics!]
