Late yesterday we got confirmation that Castlevania would be getting a four part mini-series adaptation via Netflix, with Frederator Studios and Dredd producer Adi Shankar at the helm. Now, courtesy of IGN, we have a few more specific details.

The outlet contacted Shankar and learned the animated show will be an adaptation of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse specifically, which followed Trevor Belmont in the late 1400s where series regular Alucard made his debut as an optional companion.

The Castlevania series will be rated R, will be “in the vein of Game of Thrones”, and counts Akira, Ghost in the Shell and Young Justice as its inspirations.

Warren Ellis will be serving as the show’s writer and producer. Comic book fans may know him from the Extremis saga of Iron Man and much, much more.

Shankar also revealed a second season will come in 2018 via his Facebook page. We’ll be sure to bring you more info as it’s made available.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.

    Based on 3? I’m all for it. Still bugs me that “Alucard” is just “Dracula” backward though. I always meant to find out if it was literally the same in Japanese. Did they just reverse the order of the kanji for Akumajo? Can you even reverse “devil castle legend” in that way?
