Castlevania will apparently become the latest entry in Konami’s ReBirth series, bringing Castlevania the Adventure up to speed. The title was given a T rating from the ESRB and likely will see a release on WiiWare, following the likes of Contra and Gradius.
A Gameboy title of the same name seems to be the likely culprit to be given the ‘rebirthing’ process. Either that or it’s a totally new entry in the series and they want us to completely disregard there own prior releases.
The ESRB listing:
Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth
Content descriptors: Animated Blood, Fantasy Violence
Rating summary: This is a side-scrolling action game in which players battle against monsters in Dracula’s castle. Players use a chained whip to fight their way through halls and dungeons filled with zombies, skeletons, flying eyeballs, and bats. The enemy creatures frequently shoot projectiles and attack players in hand-to-hand combat. If players sustain too much damage, they keel over and emit a burst of red blood. Some rooms in the castle also have spikes or spears stained with red, blood-like splotches.
