By the hands of Belmont, the first trailer for the highly anticipated Netflix Castlevania series just dropped; and it is goddamn glorious folks.
Fans of the popular Nintendo game met the news that was announced earlier this year about an animated Netflix series of Castlevania with a lot of anticipation as it’s fairly unanimous that this game, in particular, was a favorite to play on the original Nintendo system back in the good ole days of 4 and 8 bit graphics.
The trailer itself looks promising as it seems to follow that beautiful tone of Belmont on a determined as hell mission to take down Dracula. The trailer dropped first this morning via the Latin America Netflix Twitter account, however now that we have an English version, here it is!!
According to the show’s official description of the series:
Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar.
Netflix’s Castlevania will arrive via streaming on July 7, 2017. Are you excited?!
