Wii Whips it With Castlevania

Less Mario and ... (Not Safe For Work!)How the Nintendo Wii remains such a dominant force in the gaming community is beyond me. If you look down the line of games, there’s a pretty good track record of party games, Mario-centric titles and some glorified Gamecube ports. How about we get something that will actually feel like it was meant for the Wii? If I am going to look like an idiot swinging the Wii-mote around, then at least give me something worth playing.

While we’re still waiting on the ability to swing a lightsaber, the next best thing would be whipping some vampire ass … as a Belmont!

Konami is looking to bring the classic franchise to the Big N’s popular system with Castlevania Judgment, a title that “bridges the past with the present as it pits several generations of the Belmont clan against a host of characters that span the franchise’s 22-year history.” Players will be able to whip, slash and stab their way across this new 3D Castlevania title. Finally!

The game, due out sometime this fall, will have the ability to connect with the DS title Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. Players will also be able to compete head-to-head via the Wii’s wi-fi connection, though it has not been mentioned if this will be free or part of the “pay for play” service.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    Has anyone mentioned the fact this this is going to be…A FIGHTING GAME?!

    Thus the “bridging the gap” thing…because you’ll be able to pit Belmont Versus Belmont.

    Clone Wars? More Anakin Skywalker? No thanks.
