    It's Adi Shankar, the guy behind the Castlevania animated series who'll helm the project. Just like with his previous video game-to-series adaptation, Adi Shankar broke the news on his Facebook page:

    Not much else is known about the project at this point but it seems like Ubisoft decidedly wants steer away from the disaster that was the big screen adaptation of the series and is now considering a new approach. Do you think an anime formula will work?

    It's a famous IP. They can milk this franchise however they want. I just hope it will be good.

    It'll suck worse than that Devil May Cry anime.

    Scratch that, it'll suck worse than that time they made Panzer Dragoon into an Anime.

    I hope it isn't as bad as the movie they made of AC last year. That film was just too convoluted.

    Not sure, the Castlevania series is looking pretty positive, if they keep to the source material with an emphasis on the action and not convolute it too much with story exposition, it'd probably work. I know Assassin's Creed is story heavy, but most fans of Assassin's creed don't play it for that, they play it to stab some templars.

    Finding that out myself.
    Cool, I loved the new movie. I've always wondered about this, super nice it's finally happening. :D

    Seems Ubisoft is going the sellout way for this franchise. First a movie, and now an animated series... should I even mention the word 'milking a cash cow', or is it so obvious that it's pointless to say.

    Oh look they are milking more money from the ip that does not need a anime of all things.

    You mean like what Square Enix does with FFVII? Or does it work because that's a beloved and sacred series?

    No, cash ins like this are always terrible - 100% of the time. The movie sucked; I know people who liked it and it didn't fail, but it was a critical failure.

    Gears of War
    Paper Mario
    Metroid
    Earthbound
    Twisted Metal
    Ninja Gaiden
    Jet Grind Radio
    Crash Bandicoot
    Knuckles Choatix
    Tengai Makyou
    Oddworld
    River City Ransom
    Code of Princess
    Bioshock
    Need For Speed
    Grand Theft Auto
    Fallout
    Breath of Fire

    Jet Grind Radio in the proper style would make for something exciting.

    I think Grand Theft Auto could be a cool series, but it'd be better live action.

    Seriously they should ditch Assassin's Creed and bring back Prince of Persia. The prince demands his throne back.
