Also, will be a hard 'R'
Just yesterday, it finally came to light that the long rumoured film adaptation of Castlevania would be making its appearance as a Netflix series, due to make its season 1 debut later on this year. Not much else was revealed, aside from who would be producing and writing for the show, but now a few more details have been...
Written by Warren Ellis
Plenty of video game franchises go through the rumour mill when it comes to TV and movie adaptations, but Castlevania has been an ever-present and persuasive possibility for quite a while. The talk reached a peak in 2015 when producer Adi Shankar said he was working on "a super violent Castlevania mini-series with my homies...
12 years in the making
About a week ago, we reported on the rumour that Fred Seibert (of Fairly Oddparents and Adventure Time fame), along with his production company 'Frederator Studios', would be animating a Nintendo property. However, some believe this referenced project might actually be an adaptation of a renowned third-party Nintendo classic,...
"What music they make!"
Pop culture reissue company Mondo has revealed that it is releasing a limited edition vinyl soundtrack for Konami's legendary SNES hit Super Castlevania IV next year. Mondo - which creates limited edition posters, vinyl soundtracks, collectibles and clothing "inspired by our favorite movies, TV shows, comics and more" - has...
While Konami sleeps...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mONE-71l3Xg We've already seen a few Nintendo properties remade using the powerful Unreal Engine but this latest project is of interest because it aims to remake one of the NES' most beloved third-party titles: Konami's Castlevania. Dejawolfs has spent the past four months working on the demo...
With the upcoming release of the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition (NA) / Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System (EU), we're going to provide short profiles of all 30 games included on the system. Now we turn our attention to Castlevania; don't forget to check out the first two entries in this series, in...
Three decades of miserable secrets
Want to feel old? Konami's Castlevania series has now been going for 30 years. The franchise began life on the Japan-only Famicom Disk System as Akumajou Dracula. This title was released in North America as Castlevania in May the next year and was followed by two NES sequels - 1987's Castlevania II: Simon's Quest...
"I'm extremely excited about this very ambitious work they're undertaking"
Spanish developer MercurySteam - which created the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow sub-series and produced Mirror of Fate for the 3DS - has revealed that it has reunited with Dave Cox, the former Konami producer who worked with the studio on those titles. Cox enjoyed 17 years...
Including the glory years
Castlevania is a classic franchise, and we're not simply talking about the entries from the NES and SNES era. It's easy to look at the current status of the series and bemoan the loss of the 'good old days', but the IP was still receiving wonderful releases not so many years ago. The six games across GBA and DS are...
Over 1,600 rooms to explore
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, widely regarded as a Castlevania successor and led by Koji Igarashi, was a phenomenon on Kickstarter. It's become the most successful game project ever on the platform, and its success brought plenty of stretch goals and a
Castlevania! Untold History of Japanese developers! Bible Adventures!

Wii U port will be handled by Armature Studio if the goal is reached
A couple weeks ago, industry veteran Koji Igarashi revealed his latest project to the world, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The hotly anticipated game will follow the adventure of a character named Miriam as she explores a dark, gothic castle infested with a vast array of...
What a horrible night to have a Wii U
Former Castlevania Producer (and possible vampire) Koji Igarashi has been creating some sinister headlines recently, as word of a new project whipped fans up into a frenzy of speculation. The prophetic Kickstarter reveal on Monday has indeed come to pass, but alas this new project won't be coming to Nintendo...
The moon rises
The past week was rather exciting for fans of Castlevania and Koji Igarashi's work, as Igarashi-san launched a teaser site teasing a spiritual successor, allowing curious fans to choose between a pixelated sword or whip - if this isn't a Castlevania-style project, we'll be amazed. Expected to arrive on Kickstarter - retro-themed...
Sword or whip - which will you choose?
Yesterday, we reported on a rumour which seemed to suggest that Koji Igarashi - he of Castlevania fame - was about to launch a Kickstarter campaign for his next game. The rumblings appear to have been true, as Igarashi has just launched a teaser site for his next venture - and it allows fans to have some...
"The first sign rises with the full moon. Soon, I will return"
Long-time Castlevania producer Koji "IGA" Igarashi left Konami a while back to move into indie development, but aside from a cryptic double-page PAX flyer, we've heard very little about what he's up to. However, this week could change all of that, if rumours swirling around the dark...
"Their qualm is that it's unlicensed, but it doesn't need to be"
At the request of Konami, the review-packed book Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents: Castlevania by Kurt Kalata has been removed from sale. The full colour book was only released two months ago on September 13th, and not only includes overviews of nearly every Castlevania title, but also...
Wii U eShop / GBA
The best for last?
Konami's Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow is the third and final Castlevania title for the GBA, and arguably the strongest. A departure from the typical period drama involving the extended and ever-complicated Belmont clan, Aria of Sorrow introduces new characters and mythology into the series while also building on what has made...
Wii U eShop / GBA
A perfect harmony?
The Wii U eShop is becoming an embarrassment of riches, with a robust library of indie titles complemented by a growing lineup of strong Virtual Console games. Konami's Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is the second of three Castlevania titles released on the Game Boy Advance, and while it controls and plays similarly to its...
A bloody good read
Castlevania is one of those franchises which will always be inexorably linked with Nintendo. The series became a household name thanks to its well-received NES outings, and in the days of the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS it strengthened this connection with six excellent "Metroidvania" releases. Although its future may well...
Wii U eShop / GBA
Over the moon
Konami's Castlevania has changed directions in recent years, with the Lords of Shadow titles polarizing fans of the long-running series. That's why fans of the "Metroidvania" outings should flock to the Wii U eShop and download the Game Boy Advance Castlevania titles, which feature the series' signature exploration-based, semi-linear...
Wii U eShop / SNES
When you think of the definitive side-scrolling Castlevania experience, we imagine for most people it’s imagery of Symphony of the Night or Super Castlevania IV that first creeps into the ol’ noggin. But while those might be the most popular of responses, there’s a slightly more obscure game in the franchise that many die-hards...
The Game Boy Advance enjoyed a terrific trilogy of 2D Castlevania titles — as did its successor, the DS — which set impressive standards for portable entries in the franchise. With GBA games on the Wii U, the prospect of playing them on the GamePad — or the TV if you like enormous pixels — must have come to the minds of Konami...
We want one
The eagle-eyed among you have no doubt noticed that we like some modded retro consoles here at Nintendo Life; giving a new design and style to a lovely old system can be a fine thing indeed. This latest effort is also perfect for the upcoming Halloween festivities. It's the work of Vadu Amka, who we've featured before with some...
Physical and digital versions available now
Remember Sega Arcade Classics Volume 1? Well Hardcore Gaming 101 founder Kurt Kalata is taking a break before starting Volume 2 and has put together another fine tome in the form of Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents: Castlevania. Kalata will be famous among seasoned Castlevania fans as the man behind The...
Could this be Koji "Iga" Igarashi's next project?
Last week, Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune hosted a panel at PAX Prime, and during the event flyers appeared which seemed to hint at a new Castlevania-style adventure. The rumour is that Koji "Iga" Igarashi — who oversaw the Castlevania series and recently parted company with Konami to make games on...
Wii U eShop / NES
After the success of the original Castlevania title on the NES system, Konami decided to change things up quite a bit for Castlevania II: Simon's Quest. Gone was the straight-ahead platforming action of the original, replaced with a much more rpg-flavored approach that placed more emphasis on item collection and exploration. While...
3DS eShop / NES
Join the fang club
Looking back, it's incredible to think that Konami took such a risk with the Castlevania series during its formative years. Having tasted critical and commercial success with the original NES outing, the Japanese company decided to give its direct sequel a different spin. The result was Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, a game which...
New Leaf and Castlevania devs discuss the intricacies of game development
Many of the presentations at last month's Game Developers Conference are now available to view for free on the GDC Vault website, including Animal Crossing: New Leaf producer Katsuya Eguchi and co-director Aya Kyogoku's "How to Turn a New Leaf at the Animal Crossing" and...
Scream bloody murder
Next week's Japanese Wii U Virtual Console titles have been confirmed, and fans of Konami and Capcom should be pretty pleased with what's on offer. Arguably the most notable release is Castlevania: Dracula X (known as Akumajou Dracula XX in Japan and Castlevania: Vampire's Kiss in Europe), the SNES port of the PC Engine classic...
A chilling look at the 1988 arcade release Haunted Castle
Despite the critical mauling Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 received at the hands of the gaming press, Konami's gothic franchise has arguably never been in better health. After years of dismal sales and underexposure, the mainstream appeal of the series was emphatically restored by 2011's...
Mystic Quest, Gradius and Neutopia also coming along for the ride
Castlevania fans will be pleased to know that NES classic Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse — one of the best entries in the entire lineage — is hitting the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console next week, which means a western release shouldn't be far behind. Originally released in...
Aiming for a campaign boost
Composer Michiru Yamane, best known for her work on music for the Castlevania series, has joined forces with Parisian indie studio Game Atelier for its upcoming Kickstarter-funded title, Flying Hamster II. Check out Game Atelier's reveal video for the composer below: Flying Hamster II is currently in development for...
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and F-Zero: GP Legend appear eShop-bound
The Australian government's Classification Board is infamous for its censorship of violence in games, hindering the release of dozens of highly-anticipated titles over the years. But sometimes its ratings bring us good news: Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and
"When you turn Zelda into a 2D platformer, it resembles Metroid"
We reported yesterday on the news that Koji "IGA" Igarashi has parted company with Konami after 24 years of service. Igarashi-san is perhaps best known for his work on the Castlevania series, an association which began with the seminal Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. The game...
"I've decided to break out on my own"
It's possible that gamers relatively fresh to Nintendo hardware won't know much of Koji Igarashi's work, but Castlevania fans that enjoyed the terrific series entries on the Game Boy Advance and DS — in particular — may mourn the formal passing of an era today, even if it's been on the cards for a...
The only things that suck are the vampires
Castlevania 64, which is how we shall refer to the original Nintendo 64 vampire-killing game to avoid confusion with the other Castlevania, is a game that’s been unjustly left on the series' scrapheap for far too long, and I’m going to tell you why. Now that doesn’t mean I’m here to excuse the...
3DS eShop / NES
What a horrible night to play this game
Sequels of the present day are almost an inevitability; a safe way for a developer to earn some extra revenue by expanding their previous game, slightly tweaking gameplay nuances and throwing in additional levels and enemies. However, in the late '80s, things were different – sequels could vary wildly from...
Wii U eShop / NES
Should've put a stake in it
With 1987's Castlevania on the NES, Konami created a classic. The vampire hunting action game was a whip-roaring success, kicking off one of gaming's most iconic series and introducing a generation of gamers to the adventures of Simon Belmont, the joy of whip-based combat, and the explosive properties of holy water. The...
No love for Nintendo
It has already been confirmed that Spanish studio MercurySteam is moving away from the Castlevania franchise once work is completed on Lords of Shadow 2, but producer Dave Cox has now announced that company's as-yet-unnamed new project won't be hitting the Wii U. Speaking at a round table event attended by GameSpot, Cox...
Fangs for the memories, but is it time to move on?
Ever since it began in 1986, Konami's Castlevania series has been closely associated with Nintendo. The vampire-slaying lineage started life on the Famicom Disk System in Japan and shortly afterwards found worldwide fame on the NES. Since then, the franchise has seen some of its most famous and...
Wii U eShop / NES
Just like Dracula, it keeps coming back to life...
Konami, admittedly following the lead of others such as Nintendo and Capcom, sure likes to remind us it was making awesome games way back in the 1980s. "Hey", it says, "remember how great Castlevania was on the NES?" We sure do, Konami and, oh look, now we can buy it again on the Wii U! It's one of...
Wii U eShop / SNES
Fangs for the memories
The Castlevania series is enjoying something of a renaissance at the moment, thanks largely to MercurySteam's commercially successful Lords of Shadow sub-series. However, as many hardcore Castlevania fans will repeatedly tell you until they are blue in the face and you are deeply, deeply bored, the God of War-style gameplay...
The children of the night, what sweet music they make
Nintendo has confirmed that Konami's whip-cracking classic Super Castlevania IV is coming to the North American Wii U eShop on October 31st — just in time for Halloween. Originally released in 1991, the game stars vampire killer Simon Belmont and is regarded by many Castlevania fans as one of...
A 16-bit classic to get your teeth into
Japanese Wii U owners will be able to enjoy what is arguably Simon Belmont's best adventure next week as Super Castlevania IV (or Akumajō Dracula as it's known over there) hits the Virtual Console in that region. The first 16-bit outing for Konami's esteemed vampire-hunting series, Super Castlevania IV was...
You'll be whip-smart in no time
Konami has released a strategy portal for the recently released Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate designed to be accessible both online and through the 3DS Internet Browser — to view on the 3DS visit http://future-press.com/mof/. Since the browser can be used while a game is running, the guide is sure to...
If you didn't, allow us to save you the bother
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate launched worldwide recently to a somewhat mixed reception. We really liked it, and the fact that it contains an amusing reference to Nintendo's Super Mario series only endears it to us even further. The Easter egg of which we speak is found on a dead body...
Konami's Dave Cox talks about the latest entry in the bloodsucking franchise
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate is almost with us, so what better time is there to sit down with the producer of the game and chat about its development, inspiration, aims and challenges — as well as the future of the Castlevania franchise? Nintendo Life:...
Never say never
Konami has been fairly adamant that Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 isn't coming to the Wii U, thanks simply to a lack of available resource and time. This is perfectly understandable; developer Mercury Steam has only just finished work on the 3DS title Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, and has its hands full...
It's a family affair
It's not long until Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate launches on the Nintendo 3DS in North America and Europe, and the latest trailer for the game is here to push excitement levels even higher. The trailer focuses on Trevor's son Simon Belmont, who was the star of the first few Castlevania titles on the NES but...
Producer Dave Cox gives more details on 3DS epic
In an interview with Eurogamer, Konami producer Dave Cox has revealed that were it not for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, Spanish developer Mercury Steam might not be here today. Reflecting on the current demands of video game development, Cox said: Look what's happened to...
Dave Cox wants a link to the future
Nintendo's stance on collaborating with other developers is resulting in some interesting new titles, and rightly so — given the highly-esteemed nature of the company's portfolio, it's no surprise that other devs are falling over themselves to join forces with the Kyoto-based veteran. Speaking to Dutch site...
More interview goodness from Konami's Dave Cox
Konami producer Dave Cox must have an aching jaw, because he's given so many interviews recently relating to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate that he must be absolutely pig-sick of talking about the upcoming 3DS title. However, we're not complaining, because each new interview gives fresh...
Also, don't expect a home console version of Mirror of Fate
Konami producer Dave Cox has already stated that a Wii U version of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 isn't going to happen, but he's never really elaborated on the reason why - until now, that is. Speaking to Dutch site n1ntendo.nl, Cox had this to say:
Nintendo exclusivity could mean a Wii U version in the future

Just in time for Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate is due to hit 3DS consoles this March, but it won't be the only chance for fans to get their fill of Dracula-slaying action - the original NES classic has recently been given an ESRB rating for the Nintendo 3DS, which means a Virtual Console download is...
Responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution

Whipping up a storm in the eShop
Yesterday Konami producer Dave Cox took to Twitter to answer a few eager Castlevania fans' questions regarding the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series. Unfortunately he reiterated his stance that Lords of Shadow 2, a game already confirmed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, would not be coming to Wii U. He has since...
Fangs for nothing
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate is hitting the 3DS early this year, giving fans of the franchise a fresh reason to pick up their vampire-killing whip and lay the smackdown on the undead hordes. The game is part of the Lords of Shadow sub-series, which started in 2010 with the Xbox 360 and PS3 reboot and will...
ESRB rating paints a pretty picture
ESRB ratings are usually good for a laugh, as they have to spell out in quite a plain and matter-of-fact manner the themes which are contained within each game, and the rating for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate is certainly no exception. The game has been deemed 'Mature' by the ESRB, and goes on to...
The gang's all here
Konami producer Dave Cox has revealed on this Twitter account the artwork that will adorn the cover of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. That's it there, just under these words. The art showcases the four main characters of the game - Trevor Belmont and his son Simon, Gabriel Belmont/Dracula and everyone's...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate producer Dave Cox has confirmed via his Twitter account that the game will launch in North America on 5th March 2013, with the European release coming a mere three days later (that's the 8th, in case you were wondering). The gothic action adventure was pushed into 2013 w
No big-budget version coming after all?
Remember that news we posted about the Castlevania live-action Hollywood movie being resurrected? Where Michael "Worf from Star Trek" Dorn said he was involved in the production of the film? Hope you didn't get too excited, because it turns out he was talking about a fan-made series, and not the on-off...
Meet the actors behind the Belmont clan
As well as releasing a swanky new trailer for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, Konami has given a few more details on the basic story, as well as revealing the actors who will be lending their vocal talents to the game. Mirror of Fate focuses on Simon and Trevor Belmont, who - in the...
It's all about the timing. Konami has released a new trailer for its forthcoming 3DS adventure Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate - and guess what? Today is Halloween.

Konami and MercuryStream aiming for plenty of exploration in 3DS instalment
Konami producer Dave Cox has spoken to ONM about the forthcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — Mirror of Fate, and as usual, the term "Metroidvania" has once again reared its ugly head. Cox has stated several times that the new 3

Much-anticipated 3DS action game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate will be playable at this year's Eurogamer Expo in London. Konami's portable vampire-basher joins other high-profile games on the showfloor from 27th to 30th September at London's Earls Court. If you want to learn more about the Belmont's next challenge...
Burning questions answered
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — Mirror of Fate remains one of our most eagerly-awaited 3DS titles here at Nintendo Life, thanks to the simple fact that several of our staff are absolutely potty about Konami's long-running vampire-hunting franchise. Following hard on the heels of the sublime DS 'Metroidvania' titles,...
Fangs for nothing
Despite Nintendo's insistence that Wii U won't miss out on support from third party developers and will be getting key multiformat releases, it seems that developers are yet to be convinced. As part of an upcoming interview with Konami's Dave Cox, it was confirmed that the forthcoming sequel to popular reboot Castlevania: Lords of...
Back and forth
The first part of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — Mirror of Fate's subtitle should be enough to tip you off that this is very much part of the series' modern lineage, linking as it does to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow on PS3. Series supremo Dave Cox has told Siliconera while there's plenty of ex
25 years of memories
This week has been Castlevania features week. We’ve picked our top ten games from the series, reviewed an awful novelisation of Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest, and provided some tips for wannabe Dracula hunters. One thing that has become clear amongst the team is that this series is packed full of memories and nostalgia, as...
The old-school way
So far this week we’ve listed our top 10 Castlevania games, while also launching the Nintendo Life Book Club with the horrific Simon’s Quest novel. A common theme across the series is the quest to defeat Dracula, mostly by trekking through his unfeasibly huge castle. Should the unlikely ever occur and the world looks to you to hunt down the Prince of Darkness, who better to..
For all you bookworms
Here at Nintendo Life we do our best to keep you entertained with a diverse range of news, reviews, features, podcasts and music shows. We've been missing one thing, though: a Nintendo Life Book Club. There's a lot of game-based literature out there, so we thought that the bookworms out there would like to chill out with a...
Our favourite Dracula quests
As the dreaded night of Halloween continues to loom ever closer, we are now turning our attention to the Castlevania franchise, which recently celebrated its 25th Anniversary. All of this week there'll be features looking at the series, as we join the hunt to take Dracula down once and for all. In previous features...
Super Castlevania IV's brilliant soundtrack is coming back from the dead
Castlevania producer David Cox has tweeted that the upcoming PS3/360 title Lords of Shadow is to feature classic tunes from older instalments of the series - more specifically the fourth title, which appeared on the SNES in 1991. Here's the tweet: Today I heard the waterfall music from Super Castlevania 4 fully orchestrated..
Virtual Console port is bested using some smooth moves
Those of you brave enough to have downloaded the Virtual Console port of the original NES Castlevania will be aware that the game is hard. As in tough-as-old-boots hard. Here at Nintendo Life Towers we've lost count of the number of NES pads we've broken over the years attempting to put Drac...
Listen to them - the children of the net. What rumours they make
This is probably one to file under “rumour” for the time being but we’ve gotten wind from an anonymous source that Konami is currently working away on a Castlevania collection, which apparently will be released on the Wii and Sony PSP this year. Details are predictably sketchy...
Modder recreates first stage for PC shooter
Dracula's castle has come down with a bad case of alien head crabs. Where are the Belmonts to stop them? Dead, presumably, so it's up to Gordon Freeman to crowbar them into crab juice in this translation of the original Castlevania's first level to the PC's Half-Life 2. The mod retains the same look of the 8-bit rendition in its transition to 3D, complete..
Video of the first few levels hits the net, looks fang-tastic
As you may already be aware, Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth came out in Japan recently. The Western release is still up in the air, so while you're waiting you might want to take a look at this footage, which has been posted up on YouTube by user jodecideion. Be warned - this may spoil your enjoyment of the game if you're the kind of..
More gorgeous shots of the upcoming WiiWare release in action.
Well it's not much, but we were able to get our hands on three additional screenshots of the upcoming WiiWare release Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth in action. As you can see in the screenshots below, the game looks absolutely amazing and should prove to be a great addition to the ever-increasing Rebirth series from Konami. As..
But it's a lovely screenshot nonetheless
Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth comes out in Japan on the 27th of this month, but aside from a few images in Famitsu, we've seen precious little of the game thus far. That's changed somewhat, but not by much. A single screen from the game has been released onto the net, and while we'd rather have a few images to gaze longingly at, it's nice enough. The..
Don't fret - Koji Igarashi is still alive and well, Konami confirms
When Konami revealed its Castlevania series reboot Lords of Shadow at this year's E3, the absence of Koji "IGA" Igarashi raised some eyebrows. The legendary producer - who has been the Castlevania franchise head man since the days of Symphony of the Night - didn't seem to...
Support SouthSideGamers in this most noble quest
If the recent Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth screens have whetted your appetite for all things vampire-related then you might want to point your browser in the direction of the SouthSideGamers website. The gaming group intends to play Castlevania games for 48 hours straight (and possibly longer) in order to raise money for Childs Play, a charity..
Latest issue of Famitsu provides a closer look at the highly-anticipated dose of retro goodness.
Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has provided the world with a first look at Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth. The screens show the typical Gothic look we've come to love and expect from Konami's vintage series. The game appears to follow the...
Nintendo's confirms Konami title as a Q3 release
Wow, things sure move quickly in the world of WiiWare. We've only just heard the awesome news that Konami's new Castlevania is in the works, and now Nintendo's own release list has confirmed that the game is going to be with us sooner than expected - this month, in fact. Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is a Q3 game, according to The Big N. We're..
The Belmont's Hollywood debut is cancelled
Although Hollywood's track record with video game adaptations has been less than impressive over the years (see Super Mario Bros. for proof) we have to admit we were a little excited about Paul W. S. Anderson's proposed Castlevania movie. Announced back in 2005, the film was due to begin production in 2006...
More vampire-hunting tomfoolery on your portable
The Entertainment Software Rating Board of America (better known by the shorter title of ESRB) has revealed the name of Konami’s next DS Castlevania adventure: The Order of Ecclesia.
