The new Castlevania series on Netflix actually looks good

Castlevania is coming to Netflix on July 7th. What’s more, the new animated series actually looks like it could be good…

We know from the past that video game adaptations don’t always work out that well, cough, see Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Super Mario Bros., and the latest attempt in Assassin’s Creed, to name but a few. In fact the only good video game adaptation that comes to mind was the Ace Attorney movie in 2012.

So, you can imagine the equal hope, excitement and worry when something like Castlevania is announced for Netflix. Even the producer, Adi Shankar, had to reassure fans:

‘I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation’.

Strong words, but can it deliver? I guess we’ll see shortly. Check out the new teaser trailer and the synopsis below:

The last surviving member of a disgraced clan fights to save Eastern Europe from Dracula. Inspired by the classic NES game.
