Yup, that’s right. Netflix has given the go ahead for a series based on Nintendo’s popular action series, Castlevania. The animated series will be based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse and will be produced by Adi Shankar. Shankar has said that the series will be R rated due to the intense violence and gore. The art inspiration behind the show’s design is influenced by Ghost in the Shell and Young Justice. This is a good thing considering that the last time Castlevania was animated into anything, it certainly didn’t do Konami’s flagship series justice. Shankar, when asked about the series, has said that the show would be “America’s first animated series for adults”. He has high hopes for the series, saying, “This is the best f******g video game adaption ever made.”
For those of you who don’t know, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse follows Trevor Belmont as he hunts down the vampire Count Dracula and rid him from the land of Transylvania. Netflix is looking to have the Castlevania series streaming later this year.
