Gameloft's Metroidvania type game?

Does anyone remember the name of the metroidvania style game that Gameloft's working on and when it's coming out? Thanx in advance.

I vaguely remember something..... Perhaps it was a java game. I think it was a Java game for regular cell phones that was essentially a clone of Castlevania. I can't remember the title. Anyway, someone speculated as to whether Gameloft might make a iPhone port. Nothing came of it. There was no annoucement by Gameloft or anything. Just wishful thinking on the part of one particular forum user. I could be wrong about this, because this subject definitely came up a long time ago. Probably over a year ago.

Gist of it is that there is no Metroidvania type game being developed by Gameloft for the iPhone.

I can't remember the name. But it was a DS game that they made.

I remember there was a thread on here of people wondering if we'd get it on iOS. But it was never announced.

Got it too. Definitely fun. But clearly outside Gameloft's iPhone strategy.

They also did a Pokemon clone for the DS.

Why hasn't this been ported to the app store yet?

Because Soul of Darkness was 2D, Gameloft only makes 3D games for the iPhone and iPad

That's not true. The earthworm jimm remake and castle of magic say otherwise. And the app store doesn't have a castlevania or that type of game yet.
