Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

There's a new Castlevania coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade. Available August 4th, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair is a co-op focused title that--at first--may not look like it has a lot to offer hardcore fans of the series; however, the game is surprisingly deep according to our reviewer, Scott Alan Marriott: 

"What looks on the surface to be a significantly scaled-down version of Castlevania is actually quite deep. By stripping away nearly all of the downtime associated with inventory management, map viewing, and stat monitoring, the developers have kept the action moving at a brisk clip. Yet the diversity in equipment, spells, weapons, and character-specific techniques is what keeps you coming back, as you'll never know what's lurking within a particular treasure chest. Completing all six levels also unlocks a "hard" setting that truly lives up to its billing, enhancing the replay value even further."
