Dracula returns in Castlevania Harmony of Despair, with the second launch of the title this time for Xbox. Featuring the classic fast paced 2D, side scrolling action the series is known for, fan favorite vampire hunters from across the series will join forces to return Dracula, the Lord of Darkness, to his eternal slumber.

The game allows up to 6 friends to play together via online co-op story mode or see who the best vampire hunter is in Survival Mode, which challenges players to fend off their friends while fighting for their very survival. Utilize your co-op skills to explore the levels with your friends in order to find hidden locations with special items and equipment or team up in battle to let loose destructive attacks on the hordes of attacking creatures.

This is the 5th Castlevania title to become playable on Xbox One, that originally came out on the Xbox 360. We’re very happy to see the entire franchise that released in previous generations being made available for current generation consoles.
