Netflix’s Castlevania Teaser Trailer

Earlier this year on February, without formalities streaming service Netflix simply declared that they are taking a shot at Konami's action-adventure horror game Castlevania, adapting it into an animated TV series. Recently, they have just released the teaser trailer for Castlevania series that bears a retro vibe.

Castlevania – Vengeance Teaser

While the trailer itself is only under a minute, it draws a decent image of what we are about to get from the series, which will give fans a feeling of what truly matters to the show. On the off chance that the trailer is any sign, there will be blood, gore and epic confrontation all that you'd expect from an anime that is based on the theme of vampire legends.

The teaser starts with a person inserting a Castlevania cartridge into an old NES console and then the Netflix logo shows up on screen in a simple 8-bit style. In a very quick montage, the clip shows us Dracula's reign of terror, blood-spilling, Trevor Belmont's entrance to the scene and ends with Castlevania logo appearing over Dracula's castle.

The official description that Netflix have released is as follows:

"Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar."
Writer and comic-book creator, Warren Ellis (Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis, Iron Man: Extremis) and Adi Shankar has brought this project to life and are responsible for an animated adaptation of the Castlevania franchise that is long overdue. Shankar as already worked on projects like Dredd, The Grey and Lone Survivor, which tells you a lot about what you are going to get from the show if you have witnessed any of his work.

The series will primarily follow the plot line of Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse that was released on the NES and features the chronicles of Trevor Belmont, who wields the Vampire Killer Whip as he endeavors to reclaim Europe from Dracula.

Despite the release of the teaser, there is no official U.S. discharge date that has been announced. Yet, the Netflix LATAM trailer suggests a July 7 release date but still, that doesn't clear up anything. However, whenever there is any new development regarding the news, we will keep you updated.
