    That's the only official announcement made by Netflix about an upcoming TV show based on the wildly popular video game series.

    Produced by Adi Shankar, the latter announced that Warren Ellis is in charge of writing for Seasons 1 & 2 and Adventure Time's Kevin Kolde is also involved. In his Facebook post, Shankar "personally guarantee(s) that it will end the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation." He also revealed that Season 2 is planned to be released in 2018.

    All of this sounds very optimistic and appears to be another attempt to break the never-ending curse of awful video game adaptations. However, Netflix has a pretty good track record of running shows and there are some who say that it'll be an animated series.

    In any case, we'll be experiencing the evolution of "Netflix and Chill"...

    Actually looking forward to this, I've honestly been pleasantly surprised with Netflix original shows!

    Watch metorid other M. :P

    That story is also confusing enough about ailen bird people from space rasing a orphan girl to be a super powered chozo robot bounty hunter to fight in a tournement known as smash bros. (Wait that isn't the story right?)

    Well did they raise her and train her to combat the space pirates and the monsters like Ridley, and the metroid? (Wait is not it either?)

    Well i mean i would like to least have them try and explain MORPH BALL. :creep:

    Cool maybe...

    And yes, I like Adventure time, but Castlevania isn't funny, it is serious.

    I personally have never been much into the series but I will give it a shot and it could perhaps become a good example of how to properly do video game to tv adaptions

    well, movies based on games are generally bad, but let's see if Series are a diferent story. I'll give'em the benefit of the doubt since there's lot of people saing there are good netflix exclusives. Hope it's a good thing + good thing = great thing scenario, but well, only time will tell.

    Well, I don't know... It could be good, but it's a big could...
    Still, how much there is to adapt from the Castlevania lore apart from "Dracula comes back to life, go kill him"?



    I hope there's an episode dedicated to Dracula's castle appearing on mount fuji... :creep:
