It was announced earlier this year in February that a “Castlevania” series, based on the game franchise of the same name, would be coming to Netflix for 2017.

The company has made good on that promise with the release of the first trailer to the Castlevania animated series which will premiere on July 7.

The one-minute-and-twenty-seven second teaser didn’t mention any names, but it’s safe to assume that the whip-wielding gentleman is a member of the Belmont clan of legendary vampire hunters. A voice-over also helps to confirm this with the statement: “The one who killed Dracula.”

FEATURED STORIES

Several glimpses of a man with long blonde hair rising from a coffin was also shown. This could be Alucard, the offspring of Dracula and protagonist of “Castlevania: Symphony of the Night” , or possiblya new character entirely.

Meanwhile, IGN reports that director Adi Shankar has confirmed the series to be an adaptation of the classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game “Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.

This confirmation also helps to identify the female mage to be Sypha Belnades, a sorceress and one of the playable characters in the NES game. Alucard was also one of the playable characters.

Castlevania is a dark fantasy-themed action-adventure game franchise that follows the Belmont family of vampire slayers and their quest to rid the world of Dracula.

More information about the series should be revealed in the coming days, but fans would be happy to hear that the show will be adequately R-rated. KI
