Castlevania GBA coming to WiiWare

The Adventure gets ReBorn.

Konami is working on a WiiWare version of Castlevania the Adventure, the GBA title which originally appeared way back in 1989.

The news comes courtesy of the ESRB (as reported by Go Nintendo). The ratings board has given the game a Teen rating.

The ESRB listing describes Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth as "a side-scrolling action game in which players battle against monsters in Dracula's castle".

As you might expect, "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 attacfk 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."

There's no word on a price or release date for Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth as yet.
