Netflix’s Castlevania series is based on Castlevania III, producer says it’ll be very R-rated

Posted on February 9, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Information about the new Castlevania animated series on Netflix is starting to trickle in following the news that surfaced yesterday.

Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 will debut at some point this year. A second season is lined up for 2018. Each episode will run for roughly 30 minutes.

Netflix’s description of the series says it follows “the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself.” Producer Adi Shankar also confirmed to IGN that the show is an adaptation of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.

Shankar also had this to say:

“This is very much Castlevania done in the vein of Game of Thrones. (Producer and writer) Warren Ellis added so much depth to the material. [The series is] going to be R-rated as f***. … this is going to be the best f*****g video game adaptation we’ve had to date.”

      I take it back; IGN’s article says Frederator Studios is working on it. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Well, if they’re really going to do this, Castlevania III would be a good place to start. It does have multiple protagonists in a high fantasy setting.

    I really don’t know how I feel about this. I absolutely think Frederator *could* make a good series based on Castlevania, but I’m….not sure this is it? And what really has me worried is the thing about it being “in the vein of Game of Thrones”. I know they probably just said that because it’s the first really adult series they could think of, but they’re very different types of “R-rated”. Castlevania III would be one of the easier games to adapt to that style, admittedly, but they have to make sure that doesn’t come at the expense of what makes it, you know, Castlevania.

    Also, if you want to convince people that it has “so much depth”, it miiiiight be best not to throw in a couple shock-value F-bombs IMMEDIATELY AFTER. (Oh, I curse a lot, but it’s just because I have a limited vocabulary….I don’t think it makes me cool or edgy, or “deep”)
