Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017
This is the only information we have at the moment, but the project is most likely the same one that’s been reported as being in development from Frederator Networks (Adventure Time) and producer Adi Shankar. On an episode of the Nick Animation podcast last year, Seibert spoke about the video game project. His words, as per Slashfilm transcription:
We have a project right now that we’re doing that needs to go unnamed, based on one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years, that we’ve had in our shop for 12 years without being able to get it started. But there were great characters and a great story, and eventually we got it going.
Seeing as March is just around the corner, we should be getting more news soon! What do you guys think about this? Do you think television will be able to do the game justice? Let us know in the comments below.
