The Wii Castlevania game currently in development is not a platform game as we expected, but instead a 3D fighter featuring characters from the series.
American games mag Nintendo Power spilled the surprise in its latest issue, confirming a few details about the title too.
According to the magazine, the Nunchuk controls character movement and the Wii Remote is used for motion attacks. We presume that means you shake to swing your weapon of choice.
Characters so far confirmed are Dracula, Simon, Alucard, Shanoa and Maria Renard. Classic weapons like holy water, magic spells, the dagger and the boomerang will be returning and a bunch of old Castlevania tunes will be remixed for the game.
Jeux France has got a number of scans from the magazine, so we suggest going to have a look-see for yourself.
