While we sit patiently waiting for the next 3D Castlevania adventure, Never Know Tech claims to have the scoop on the next big side-scrolling thing -- Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

Said to be an Xbox LIVE Arcade title, the game supposedly brings back the classic "Metroidvania" gameplay with a twist -- six-player cooperative play. Yes, six people on one map at one time. Players are said to be given a boss target that they must work together to destroy. Playable characters are reported to be Soma Cruz, Alucard, Jonathan Morris, Shanoa, and Charlotte Aulin.

The name "Harmony of Despair" was trademarked awhile back, so that's not the huge surprise. The style of game and platform, however, is. We've contacted Konami to verify the information, which until then, remains a rumor. More screens can be found over at Never Know Tech. Additional screens and information have been pulled from the Never Know Tech site.

[Update: Minor change here, it looks like the screens posted by Never Know Tech indicate that this is a six player game, not an eight player title. You know, if it's a real game.]

Click your heels together and wish for SNES or GBA Remixes

When Nintendo feels like we get too close, it puts us right down. It's not the lover man that we want it to be, at least when it comes to fulfilling what can sometimes seem like lofty requests. For instance, remixes featuring...more
