RPGamer has confirmed rumors that Konami has delayed Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance from its June 19 release in Japan to an undisclosed September release date. Konami declined to make any statement concerning reasons behind the delay. No specific mention was made on exactly how this might affect the North American release of the game, originally slated to be released in September.
Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is the next chapter in the long running Castlevania series, and will be the first game to not feature the renowned Count Dracula as its antagonist. Players will control Juste Belmont, a descendant of both the Belomont and Benlades clans, who has the blood of a sorcerer and a vampire hunter in his veins. As such, Juste will have access to both magic powers and the legendary Belmont strength. More information can be found here, and be sure to read our Preview of the game.
