The first teaser for Adi Shakar’s animated adaptation of the Castlevania video game series has debuted over at Netflix’s LATAM channel, and it promises a stylish, and gory take on the material.
It’s brief, but we do get a pretty good idea of the animation style and there are glimpses of a few bloody vampire kills in there, too.
Shankar has previously teased a “dark, satirical” adaptation that would “flip the vampire sub-genre on its head,” and more recently he promised us the “western world’s first good video game adaptation.” That remains to be seen of course, but with talent like Warren Ellis and Adventure Time’s Kevin Kolde involved, it should be well worth a look at the least.
Billed as “Castlevania Season 1, Part 1,” four, 30-minute episodes are set for a July 7 premiere.
