Konami’s Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth for WiiWare has popped up on in Famitsu, despite not being officially announced yet.
According to the mag, the game is a “concept remake” of Castlevania: The Adventure for Game Boy complete with new enemies, a 16-bit look, and level design changes – like stairs replacing ropes.
ReBirth’s out in Japan on October 27 for 1,000 Wii Points with a North American release date of Q3 2009.
More through Joystiq.

First Contra and Gradius got the “ReBirth” treatment, and now – if a recent ESRB listing is to be believed – Castlevania is next in line.
Titled “Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth,” the game’s ESRB description is as follows:
“This is a side-scrolling action game in which players battle against monsters in Dracula’s castle. Players use a chained whip to fight their way through halls and dungeons filled with zombies, skeletons, flying eyeballs, and bats. The enemy creatures frequently shoot projectiles and attack players in hand-to-hand combat. If players sustain too much damage, they keel over and emit a burst of red blood. Some rooms in the castle also have spikes or spears stained with red, blood-like splotches.”
Title sound familiar? That’s because a series entry on the Game Boy shared the same moniker. Could this be that game’s Dracula-esque resurrection? Probably. Either that, or Konami just loves confusing us.
Oh, the game will be rated “T,” in case you were wondering. That is sort of the whole point of this ESRB thing, isn’t it?
