Default Castlevania, coming to Netflix (?!)

So this is happening?

Unexpected?

Geez, Castlevania's getting a TV show, Mega Man is getting a TV show. We're just a few more videogame characters away from being able to arrange a modern-day Captain N crossover between them.

Remember when Netflix was gonna make a Zelda show? A lot of these things never actually happen.

Netflix seems appropriately insane enough to actually push something like this into production, though - and I don't think they ever officially announced the Zelda project.

(I love their balls in the announcement: they came out and said "Castlevania Season One", implying they know they're going to make more than one season.)

Now I'm a little more sad that the animation tests for Achewood never went anywhere

I thought the Zelda one was debunked as speculation from whatever newspaper reported it? (WSJ, NYT, something?)

If this is animated and it's coming this year, I feel fairly confident in saying this is going to happen. Hell, even if it's live action but slated for this year, cancelling it now means a lot of work and money getting essentially thrown into a toilet.

The fact that there's literally no details other than it's happening is concerning though.

Netflix also really seems to like dropping entire series, fully formed, out of the blue.

That doesn't mean it's happening, but... I dunno.

This is an age of miracles and wonders.

A character is upset about his neighbor performing inappropriate charms on a goat.

Goats are famous for being sucked by alien lizards.

This seemingly unimportant scene is foreshadowing that, in Warren Ellis' Castlevania, Dracula isn't a vampire, he's a chupacabra with a good tailor.

Answer: It's Warren Ellis. And that is all the people need to know.

People have been tagging me on FB with this news

I actually didn't know anything about it until someone posted it in the CV thread earlier today. So thanks, Talking Time!

Seems like a red flag to make Castlevania without Dracula's involvement.

There's a 50% chance that it works out wonderfully.

Yeah, unless 2017 is just a placeholder date, if they're planning to release it this year then that means most of the animation is probably already done

Or perhaps it's the first Netflix radio drama.

Seems Warren Ellis did the writing for season one and two. At least that's what keeps getting reported and said from Adi shankar.

If we can somehow get another Castlevania game out of this, I'm all for it. Like what happened with the not very good Ratchet & Clank movie that I snuck into when the Zootopia screening screwed up.

Well, we got that Super Bomberman R coming out. I guess that means someone at Konami is making games somewhere

They must be a really fast mopper if they have time to make games.

The last guard they had watching over the dessicated husks of the Hudson staff finally got let go. It took 2 weeks for them to try leaving their cages. They collapse into the fetal position any time they hear "You've activated my [trap card!]"

They cobbled together a Switch dev unit by using pieces of a Nintendo 3DS and an XBox 360.
