Castlevania ReBirth revealed through ESRB

castlevaniaEarlier this month we saw Contra ReBirth make it’s way to North America’s WiiWare service, and it looks like Konami’s not slowing down.  From the ESRB website:

Platform: Wii
Rating: Teen
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.

No word if or when we are going to see this hopeful gem flicker across our screens, but let’s all thank the ESRB, Kotaku, and GoNintendo for the heads up!
