Up to four players will be able to take on the quest together, or face off against each other in VS battle, the action backed by popular music tracks from Castlevania’s storied history. Although there is no official release date for the title, you can opt-in for the Japanese closed beta right here. Check out the gallery below for a selection of screenshots from the new game.
