Konami Announces Aria of Sorrow
January 16, 2003

Konami of America, Inc. today revealed Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, the latest in a series of Castlevania titles for Nintendo Game Boy Advance. Aria of Sorrow is Konami's third Castlevania game for Game Boy Advance, following the successful Castlevania: Circle of the Moon and Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance - both of which ruled the top spot of Game Boy Advance software chart at their respective launches. An entirely new adventure from Koji Igarashi and the creative team behind the critically acclaimed cult classic Castlevania Symphony of the Night (Sony PlayStation), Aria of Sorrow is scheduled to ship in North America in May 2003.

"Aria of Sorrow adds so many amazing new features to the Castlevania series that this iteration is radically different from previous titles," says Jason Enos, Product Manager at Konami of America, Inc. "This is the first Castlevania set in the near future, the first Castlevania where the hero is not tied to the infamous Belmont clan of vampire hunters, and the first Castlevania to let you acquire the souls of enemies and use their abilities as weapons. Castlevania will never be the same!"

Aria of Sorrow is the most exciting Castlevania adventure yet! The year is 2035 and the game's high school student hero, Soma Cruz, is about to witness the fist solar eclipse of the 21st century when he suddenly passes out... only to awaken inside of a mysterious castle. Navigating through the castle's complex maze of labyrinths, players must battle ferocious monsters at every turn in order to find an escape before evil consumes them.

In addition to collecting and wielding multiple weapons, players now also have the unique ability to use the souls of their enemies to gain over 100 powerful new attacks and skills. Using the Nintendo Game Link Cable, players can also exchange or trade enemy souls with their friends, further bolstering their character's strength against the evil forces lurking within the castle walls. Enhanced by a haunting musical score, stunning animated characters, gigantic monsters, astonishing special effects and breathtaking graphics, Aria of Sorrow will have players wishing for their garlic cloves and wooden crosses!
