Watch The First Trailer For Netflix's Castlevania Show; Release Date Announced

Castlevania debuts in July.

10 Comments

With no advance warning, the debut trailer for Netflix's upcoming Castlevania series has arrived, and it actually looks quite promising.

The trailer was first shared on Latin America's Netflix Twitter account today, but we've since gotten an English-language version that you can check out above.

Netflix announced the series earlier this year and said that it was due out sometime in 2017. Today's trailer confirms the show will debut on July 7.

Our only look at the series before today came in the form of a cool-looking poster that features a giant castle basking in the light of a red moon. Bats were also involved.

Castlevania is produced by Adi Shakar and written by Warren Ellis, the famed comic writer behind series like Transmetropolitan.

"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 Tepes himself," an official description reads.

I don't care about the people in the ad, but I would beat them to death with a nerf bat if I saw them on the street for wasting so much of my time.

@TriumphantToad: new NES's always worked properly, and it wasn't the games that were fracked, it's the part the games fit into that went bad.....

the NES was made to be a top loader but when they brought it to America they made it a front loader and the way they adapted it meant that eventually the cartridge slot would break down over time but had they kept it as a top loader it might have lasted longer.....

^that's my source....sure he's modding the NES but he explains how the issue with the cartridge slot came about and what causes it....eh but I get the joke.....ha ha.....lol
