Summer of Arcade continues this week with:

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair - 1200 MSP
Dracula returns in Castlevania® Harmony of Despair, the first exclusive Xbox LIVE Arcade Castlevania game. Featuring the classic fast-paced 2-D side-scrolling action the series is known for, vampire hunters from across the series will join forces to return Dracula, the Lord of Darkness, to his eternal slumber.
Designed by the legendary producer of the Castlevania series, Koji Igarashi, Castlevania Harmony of Despair allows up to six friends to play together via online co-op story mode or see who the best vampire hunter is in Survival Mode, which challenges you to fend off your friends while fighting for your very survival. Utilize your co-op skills to explore the levels with your friends in order to find hidden locations with special items and equipment or team up in battle to let loose destructive attacks on the hordes of attacking creatures.

Six-player online co-op: Explore and fight Dracula with friends online or engage in Survival Mode and see who's the last warrior standing.
Combo attack system: Unleash devastating attacks by working with your partners to vanquish your foes
Classic Castlevania worlds: Fight the forces of darkness through massive levels inspired by the worlds of Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin and Order of Ecclesia.
Ghost mode: Share your adventure with friends by uploading ghost data.
Classic 2-D gaming: The fast-paced side-scrolling action and detailed 2-D art push the classic Castlevania formula into the HD era.
