Castlevania is one of the longest running franchises in video game history, boasting over 36 games since 1986 - not including minor cameos in other titles. A blatant Dracula rip-off/homage that began life as a basic platform adventure on the NES, Konami decided to take advantage of the Wii's motion controls and create a straight beat 'em up; news that was met by fans about as warmly as cancer.
All your favourite Castlevania characters are here - vampire hunter Simon Belmont, Dracula, Alucard, Shanoa - plus some newbies like Aeon who can control time. It was good ol' Aeon's idea to bring all the fighters together to see who's hard enough to take on the Time Reaper, sent by Galamoth 10,000 years in the future. Now that's planning ahead.
