Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth (ドラキュラ伝説 ReBirth Dracula Densetsu ReBirth?, The Legend of Dracula ReBirth[3]) is a side-scrolling action platform game developed by M2, and released by Konami for the Wii in 2009 as a WiiWare title. It is currently available in Japan, North America, Europe, and Australia. Based on the 1989 Game Boy title Castlevania: The Adventure, it is the third game in M2's ReBirth series, following Gradius ReBirth and Contra ReBirth.

The setting of the game takes place a century before the original Castlevania title, where the player controls an ancestor of Simon Belmont named Christopher Belmont, who must defeat the vampire Dracula.[4]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Adventure ReBirth consists of six areas that the player has to complete in order to finish the game. Toward the end of each area is a boss the player has to defeat before advancing to the next stage.[5]

The player's main weapon for attacking in-game enemies is a whip, which can upgraded by collecting orbs. The last upgrade lets the player shoot fire from Christopher's whip for a short duration.[4] Unlike the original Adventure title for the Game Boy, there are sub-weapons which are powered with items called hearts. There are five sub-weapons and each has a different use.[5]

Audio[edit | edit source]

The game's soundtrack was composed by Manabu Namiki, who worked on the other titles in the ReBirth series. The music consists of remixes of previous Castlevania songs.[6]

The official album was released on March 24, 2010 in a compilation with Contra ReBirth's music.[7]
