In mobile game news this week, Konami has announced that it will develop content specially for mobile phones based on the company’s popular videogame brands, with new storylines and original music. The first of these will be Castlevania: Order of Shadows for the mobile platform, which will arrive on September 18 on major carriers including AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Networks.
“As a worldwide leader in high quality, multi-platform videogames, Konami is looking to raise the entertainment standard of games for mobile phones,” said Joe Morris, Vice President of Konami Mobile. “Mobile technology has exploded, providing powerful new tools to enhance today’s mobile gaming experiences. Konami’s esteemed game developers will be creating original titles based on the company’s top franchises including Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid Mobile, Contra and others.”
If fighting vampires is your thing and the action of Castlevania is too kiddie for you, then maybe Capcom’s Devil May Cry will be more your speed. Capcom has announced that the mobile version will be doing its bloodsucking next year. The mobile version features Dante taking on a series of missions based on the Devil May Cry 2 console game. Rendered in 3D this survival horror action game promises to accurately recreate our favorite undead hunter.
There is a different kind of blood to be hand, this time it isn’t so much spilt but rather used to save in I-play’s ER Rush. OK, it doesn’t have the plot twists and soapy drama of Gray’s Anatomy, but it is better than a trip to the ER! Set to launch on major North American carrier decks this month, the game lets you play out as a junior ER doctor, who is charged with saving lives during a rush. You need to race against the clock to mend broken limbs, treat rashes and discharge patients as possible. Fortunately you don’t need to worry about turning down insurance claims! You do need to beat the clock while facing some weird patients including werewolves and vampires. That seems to be a trend with the current gaming news!
