A nasty case of pink-eye

Good news, vampire slayers.

The release date for Konami's WiiWare undead party Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth has snuck onto the Nintendo Channel in Europe (spotted by Nintendaan), revealing that you'll be able to take on Dracula and his cronies on February 26 for 1000 Wii points.

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is the third entry in Konami's retro sequel series and is made in the mold of a 16-bit platformer that is closer in design to Super Castlevania IV and Rondo of Blood than it is to the "Metroidvania" style of Symphony of the Night.

We thought it was pretty fang-tastic when it released in the US and much, much better than its source material. Look for it in the Shop Channel next week.
