Games Abyss writes: "With Vampire Killer in hand, the heroic Simon Belmont must once again slay the cursed denizens of the night. And though our hero's journey will cross paths with the likes of Death and Count Dracula, this isn't the adventure the Belmont Family has grown accustom to throughout the years. Set for an exclusive release on the Nintendo Wii later this year, Castlevania Judgment will span the series history and bring its characters together in a 3D fighting arena.
"We wanted to take this addition to the signature Konami franchise in a direction that really sets it apart from the previous Castlevania titles in the series," says Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. From humble 8-bit beginnings, Castlevania has always been synonymous with the action and adventure. And while the idea of a fighting game might raise a few eyebrows, Konami has 22 years worth of characters and mythology to help make this spin off title a satisfying one."
