Japanese gaming rag Famitsu has confirmed that there is indeed a third Nintendo DS Castlevania outing in the pipeline.
Apparently, all the characters in these scans state that producer of the first two DS Castlevania games, Koji Igarashi, is still involved with the new one, which is definitely a good thing in our book. In addition, there is also some sort of multiplayer option - but no idea how that works yet.
A trademark registration made last month suggests that the title could be Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, but Konami haven't said anything definitively.
The Castlevania series has been successful so far on the DS, with two rather good outings in Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin.
Cheers to former editor Chris for throwing this one our way.
