Castlevania Judgment

Castlevania Judgment

In an official press release today, Konami has confirmed a new Castlevania game heading exclusively to the Wii. What you may find surprising, is that it's a 3d Fighter.

Castlevania Judgment is being developed under legendary Castlevania guy Koji "Iga" Igarashi. It's set to feature a heap of characters from the franchise's 22 year history. Anthony Crouts, VP of marketing at Konami said:

"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. The Wiimote 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".

Castlevania Judgment lets you choose sides in an epic battle of good vs evil. The motion controls of the Wiimote will be used for a number of actions, such as stabbing, slashing and of course whipping.

Some online action is in there too, players can challenge each other in head-to-head battles over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Additionally, connecting to the DS game "Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia" lets you unlock bonus content.

North America should see Castlevania Judgment on the shelves in Autumn 2008.

Last time Nintendo had an exclusive 3D Castlevania it sucked (Castlevania 64). Konami really should just remake Symphony of the Night.

The last time Castlevania went 3D, it was a disaster (Castlevania 64). I have faith that Konami could make a decent fighter but Castlevania was the last francise that I thought that they would use. Althogh I don't like when a game formula is changed, it's good to try new things.

And to ruin a good update, for those of you who love traditional Castlevania art, this one's going to be anime.

This is clear and present anti-Wii BS. Konami are clearly taking the Wii out of us all here, where is the 3d game 3d motion play devil may cry beater we were all expecting? This is shovelware. Also no pro evo 09 Wii announced. Konami are Sony's puppet, they only make games for companies that throw money at them for games that can't profit like MGS4. Nintendo doesn't bow to anyone.

So it will basically be a game full of palette swapped characters? (I'm assuming there'll be several members of the Belmont family).
