Castlevania fighting game to hit Wii this fall

Attention Wii owners who love Castlevania-I’ve got some good news, and bad news. The good news is that Iga and Konami announced today that they’re beginning work on a new Castlevania title for the Wii. The bad news is that it’s a fighting game.

Titled Castlevania Judgment, the game pits several generations of the Belmont clan against characters from the franchise’s entire run.

"We wanted to take this addition to the signature Konami franchise in a direction that really sets it apart from the previous Castlevania titles in the series," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment. "The Wii Remote and Nunchuk capabilities, along with the iconic characters, make this game the ideal entry point into the fighting game genre. This combination is certain to thrill old and new fans of the franchise."

The game will feature obvious Wii controls like slashing, stabbing, and whipping. In addition, some characters will be able to set traps and make use of monsters on the field to win their battles. Not to be left behind other upcoming fighters, Judggment will allow players to compete head-to-head using Nintendo’s Wi-Fi connection. If you happen to own Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia on the DS, you’ll also be able to unlock bonus content in the game.

Right now, the game is scheduled for a release this fall. As always, keep your eyes here for any news and previews of the game.
