The most recent magazine scans for Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow have revealed seven of the title's major bosses. Spin Devil, Arc Demon, Puppet Master, Final Guard, Barohl, Dario, and Dmitri will all conspire to defeat Soma and return unlife to Count Dracula. Complicating matters is the fact that both Dario and Dmitri are, like Soma, potential hosts for the resurrected Dracula and, as such, are extremely powerful.
The title's story will transpire one year after the events of Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, in the year 2036. Celia Fortner is now hell-bent on murdering Soma because he refused his destiny as the reincarnation of Dracula, but Soma will hardly fall without a fight. Seizing the element of surprise, he has taken the fight to his enemy's doorstep, where he aims to confront and defeat his hunters before they can do likewise to him.
The second installment of Soma Cruz's adventures has been slated for a release in Japan, North America, and Europe, with the dates being August 25, Q4 2005, and September, respectively. RPGamer will report more information as it surfaces.
