Click to read.Konami has announced that a yet to be named Castlevania double pack will be making its way to the Game Boy Advance early next year. Two of the series most highly rated titles, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, will be put on a single GBA cartridge to give players a double-dose of Dracula whippin\' fun.

In Harmony of Dissonance, players take the role of Juste Belmont, a descendant of Simon Belmont, who must acquire the relics of Dracula left behind from the past in order to unravel the mysterious disappearance of his friend Lydie Erlanger. While in Aria of Sorrow players take the role of Soma Cruz, a young man who has been chosen as the next incarnation of the dark lord Dracula. As Soma, players will be able to wield a great variety of weapons in their quest to escape Dracula\'s castle. Along the way, players discover the ability to collect and use the souls of vanquished enemies to make themselves more powerful or enable them to perform special skills. In addition, there is an RPG element of Aria of Sorrow which adds a great level of depth to the game.

\"Castlevania\'s rich history and deep storylines have always made it a favorite franchise among casual gamers and core gaming fans alike,\" said Dennis Lee, Group Manager at Konami Digital Entertainment ? America. \"Combining two of the most beloved chapters in this long running franchise together onto one cartridge provides gamers a great value as well as giving newcomers to the series a convenient way to experience some of the best of what Castlevania has to offer.\"
