The news that there is going to be an animated Castlevania series appeared seemingly out of nowhere, much like Dracula’s Castle from the game is known to do. A few days ago, producer Adi Shankar uploaded a look at the poster for the upcoming Netflix series to his Facebook page and in a few words all I can say is, “nailed it.”
The entire image in black and blood red, a twisting, maze like castle with familiar stairs, full moon in the sky. It definitely screams Castlevania. The show premieres sometime this year and I cannot wait.
Based on the popular video game series, the show will center on Simon Belmont, a great descendant of legendary vampire hunters. Simon must enter Dracula’s horrific castle known as Castlevania and defeat his ancient adversary once and for all.
