Castlevania encores with puzzles

Castlevania has typically stuck with the action adventure platforming, but Konami has never shied away from new ideas. Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night is coming to iPhone and iPod touch. It's a reworking of the classic Symphony of the Night, but has an emphasis on, you guessed it, puzzle solving, which provides weapons, spells and items to help you battle through Dracula's castle. I would've preferred a straight port of Symphony, but then again a full platformer of that depth probably wouldn't have fit the iPhone platform very well.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - May 13, 2010 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night. Tailored specifically for the iPhone™ and iPod® touch, the latest iteration of the classic platformer game will now allow fans of the franchise to revisit the Transylvanian castle with new addicting puzzle-RPG action on-the-go.
A first in the Castlevania series, Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night will employ a unique style of puzzle-RPG, allowing players to take on the role of Alucard, the son of Dracula. Players will also have the option to play as or against characters directly from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Developed exclusively for the iPhone and iPod touch, Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night drops players inside the walls of Dracula's castle challenging them to solve puzzles in order to provide weapons and spells to aid players in their quest.
Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night will be available soon on the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
