Konami announced today Castlevania Double Pack for the GBA has shipped to retail stores nationwide. Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow are combined onto the same GBA cartridge, letting Castlevania fans experience twice the amount of evil and adventure in one convenient game package.

In Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, players take the role of Juste Belmont, a descendant of Simon Belmont. It has been nearly fifty years since Simon Belmont rescued the land from the curse of Dracula. Now, it's Juste Belmont's turn as he must acquire the relics of Dracula left behind from the past in order to unravel the mysterious disappearance of his friend Lydie Erlanger. With a trusty whip at their side, players explore Dracula's castle under the cover of night collecting relics and learning powerful magic spells in their journey to find and rescue Lydie.

In Castlevania: 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. The year is 2035 and Soma Cruz is about to witness the first solar eclipse of the 21st century when he suddenly blacks out – only to awaken inside a mysterious castle. Players discover that they are destined to become the dark lord and the only way to escape from this evil fate is to escape the castle. 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 another level of depth to the game.

Both chapters are among the most highly acclaimed games in the long running Castlevania franchise and will provide hours of portable gaming fun.

Created by Koji Igarashi and the creative team behind the critically acclaimed game Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Castlevania Double Pack is rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB and has an SRP of $29.99.
