First details on WiiWare Castlevania

Game Boy remake with updated visuals, stairs

The first proper details have emerged on WiiWare Castlevania game, The Adventure ReBirth.

Despite the fact ReBirth's been officially listed on Nintendo's release schedule, Konami's still yet to officially announce the game.

Regardless, a Japanese magazine has gone ahead and revealed it's a "concept remake" of Game Boy game Castlevania: The Adventure, with new enemies, music and altered level designs.

Predictably, it's also got updated 16-bit-esque visuals, as well as the addition of stairs to replace the Game Boy version's climbable ropes. STAIRS.

ReBirth will be out for 1,000 Wii Points in Japan on October 27 and erm... Q1 2010 in Europe, which is a bit harsh.
