A statement that I'm sticking by, as Konami unveils its latest stab at raiding Dracula's tomb, in Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls.

Castlevania is one of the longest-running and most recognizable video game franchises of all time, but it has struggled to live up to its own name for much of the 21st century.

Konami have announced a new Castlevania title coming to the iOS platform in Japan. Classic heroes from the series will return, including Alucard, Simon Belmont, and Maria Renard. It's certainly not what many Castlevania fans were hoping for, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's destined to disappoint... although the last time Konami took a stab at a mobile Castlevania, the results left something to be desired.
