And in the we didn't want this department, we have a leaked scan of a Wii Castlevania game. Except you won't be doing what you expected - being able to swing the whip around in some sort of adventure game:

Quote
According to GoNintendo, the latest issue of Nintendo Power reveals the proud return of the Castlevania series to consoles. Castlevania Judgment is, believe it or not, a 3D fighter, pitting classic characters from throughout the series against each other in mortal combat. Yes, not at all the exact opposite of what Castlevania fans have been asking for.

GoNintendo's report from the mag hints at appearances from characters like Simon Belmont and Alucard, the use of sub-weapons like holy water and boomerangs, and (surprise!) motion controls.

Odd, yes, but while Konami may not be known for its fighting games outside of Yie Ar Kung Fu it had dabbled in 3D fighters when they were in their heyday. It was also responsible for one-third of the line-up Dream Mix TV World Fighters, a Japan-only fighting game that featured Simon Belmont and Solid Snake and was terrible.

Yeah. Uh...why?

I didn't think it would be possible to top (bottom) the Batman vs. Mortal Kombat game but lo and behold it can be done.

Nowhere near April.  Damn it!  Well, this game can sit right next to the N64 version....

And when this POS catastrophically fails, an analyst will say, "shows that the Castlevania franchise doesn't really sell that well."

When the hell is Konomi going to figure out that we want a next gen 2d Castlevania game? Hell I would be happy with updated versions of SoTN and all the GBA/DS games.
