Video-game publisher Konami announced its upcoming development slate—including an all-new Castlevania game and a new installment in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise—at the company's Gamers' Day in San Francisco, the GameSpot Web site reported.
The upcoming Castlevania: Curse of Darkness will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 2 platform this fall. It will feature a new main character, the Devil Forgemaster Hector, who was formerly in the service of Count Dracula himself, the Web site reported. Players will control Hector as he travels through a plague-infested Europe on the hunt for another Devil Forgemaster seeking revenge for the destruction of Dracula, the company announced.
The latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle game, TMNT Mutant Melee, will be available for the PC, Xbox and GameCubes platforms in March. The game will sport over 20 characters controlled by up to four players in either adventure or melee mode. TMNT Mutant Melee will also feature several mini-games—including "King of the Hill," "Last Man Standing" and "Knock Out"—and will also contain unlockable content, the Web site reported.
