Castlevania: Harmony of Despair for XBLA?

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, is rumored to be an upcoming Xbox Live Arcade title featuring all the past Castlevania protagonists working together in a Metroidvania fashion. The post was first reported by ‘NeverKnowTech’ who have since pulled their article, but once something goes live, it’s not all that difficult to find again - brief details after the jump!

Using the little bit of ‘Castlevania HD’ gameplay they witnessed, the game was described as a 2D offering using sprites instead of 3D polygons that looked very similar to the post-Symphony of the Night style Metroidvania GBA\DS games. Once you load into a game they claimed it was possible to play with up to 6 friends on a single map simultaneously. Known playable characters were noted as: Soma Cruz, Alucard, Jonathan Morris, Shanoa and Charlotte Aulin, with each one having their own unique special ability.

Although this is listed under rumors until Konami make some form of official announcement, they have recently filed a ‘Harmony of Despair’ trademark in Europe, which suggests this game should be announced any time soon.

So will this also be on PS3 and PSP because if it doesn’t come out for those when its released for xbox. That would be a major disappointment since I have to pay to be on xboxlive to download this game. Far as I’m concern is that I rather download and play it on psp since I can travel with that or play it on PS3 since I don’t have to pay to stay a member online. So please also release it on PS3 and PSP when its released for Xbox.
