Konami's still-to-be-officially-announced exhumation of Game Boy classic Castlevania: The Adventure will arrive in Japan on October 27, according to details from the latest crappy cell phone shots of Famitsu magazine.

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth will colorize and modernize the 20-year-old outing of Christopher Belmont in his quest to kill Dracula for Konami's third downloadable retro "ReBirth" effort. According to NeoGAF poster Duckroll, details from Famitsu indicate "new enemies, new traps, and other improvements in each stage" will be added to Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth, along with rearranged music.

Hopefully, North American and European Wii owners will get access to the WiiWare title as soon as our Japanese counterparts. Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth is priced at 1000 Wii Points.
