The latest incarnation of Castlevania is going to be – wait for it – a 3D fighter.
A screen grab from Nintendo Power shows that Castlevania Judgment, in development for the Nintendo Wii, is straying far from the series’ original action platformer roots.
Aside from the characters, the screenshot looks like it could have come from a Mortal Kombat title.
Confirmed characters include: Dracula, Alucard, Simon, Shanoa, and Maria Renard.
The game will also feature some recognizable subweapons like the dagger and boomerang, as well as remixed classic Castlevania music.
Character movement will apparently be controlled with the Nunchick while the Wii Remote will be wielded for motion attacks.
