Excited yet?

As you may already be aware, Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth came out in Japan recently.

It's certainly looking pretty tasty, with gorgeous 2D visuals and some fantastic music (fans of the Genesis / Mega Drive instalment will be pleased with the first-level music - I know I am).

It doesn't end there, though; VixyNyan has posted up the second level, too:

We'll be posting some first impressions very soon, so watch this space.
