I feel bad for PR firms that work for game publishers. They can spend years planning the perfect launch announcement for an upcoming game, only to have the ESRB unceremoniously list it on their web page with absolutely no pageantry to be found. I guess telling the world that a game will contain "animated blood and fantasy violence" is more important than properly hyping said game to modern society. Damn you, society. Damn you and your obsession with monitoring "mild cartoon violence".

Though Konami hasn't said anything official about Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth, the ESRB is seldom wrong about these things. We'll probably get an official announcement about this upcoming Wii title any second now. If this new game is anything like previously released Gradius ReBirth and Contra ReBirth, then this is cause for serious joy. So far, the ReBirth series has proven to be some of the best stuff on WiiWare, and we can hope that Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth will be no different.

Check out the full ESRB description of Castlevania Adventure ReBirth below. "Spikes or spears stained with red, blood-like splotches" confirmed!

Castlevania the Adventure ReBirth
Platform: Wii
Rating: Teen
Content descriptors: Animated Blood, Fantasy Violence
Rating summary: 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.

Race the Sun coming cross-buy to PS3, PS4, Vita

Race the Sun is on its way to PS3, PS4, and Vita this summer. It will be cross-buy and cross-save, meaning you buy it once and can access it on all three and, if you have a Vita, you can take your saves on the go because of Transfarring. I miss Transfarring. Race the Sun? More like Race the Fun.more
