No, it's not a pachinko machine but... it's a mobile game. Here's the link
It's called 「悪魔城ドラキュラ Grimoire of Souls」 (Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls). The closed beta test is currently available for iOS only.
For now, the announced featuring characters are Genya Arikado & Alucard, Shanoa, Maria, Simon, Charlotte, Lucy.
The thing is... judging from the screenshot above, it almost looks like it's using the engine from Dracula X Chronicles and just throw a bunch of characters into the mix, which is pretty lame. They also said the game supports network co-op up to 4 players... sorry I just can't imagine that happening to an action game on a mobile platform.

Unbelievably stupid. The only decent thing about this train wreck are the character artworks.
Also, another positive thing is that I don't expect anything from Konami anymore so I won't ever feel disappointed. Also they make such sh*t games and basically nothing else at this point that it's so easy for me not to give them any money even by mistake.
It's nice to see some old faces again, but a mobile game? :sob:
This is my reaction, pretty much. I get it: this things are quick to make and should bring large profits regardless.
It's just that... well, this is hardly exciting at all. Like "good for you, Konami... but that's still not what we want."

The sad part is, fans and whales will help show them this is a profitable game, and there will be no reason for them to do a console game. I don't want to play with a touch screen. I don't want them to monetize my patience. Buying items that remove time restrictions for the main gameplay loop is almost surely going to be in.

Brainiac: I might have to wait a little longer than that to have the time for it unless my download code arrives early. If so, I might be able to preset the download before I go to sleep and have it ready on my 3DS that morning. Breaks at work would be quite nice.

Question: I backed both Curse and Ritual for the Switch, looking forward to both.

hellmont: I've got a digital copy coming to me for Switch and a physical copy for PS4. It'll be interesting to compare minute differences, if any.

Redogan: I opted for Alchemist's Treasure + Digital Copy ($125 tier) and then I added on another Digital Copy. So, I'm going to end up with 3 copies of CurseOfTheMoon (Switch, PS4, and Steam). Which is good because I have lots of players in the house.

Redogan: Also good that the Switch can jump from one dock to another around the house--and you don't even have to pause the game to do so. This is the real reason for having a Switch.

hellmont: Redogan I love the Switch for that very reason!
