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. 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.
It seems Warren Ellis's Castlevania III movie script got repurposed into this.
We all know the sorry state of the franchise, so this is the best news in years. I hope this leads to new games which aren't for EROTIC VIOLENCE slot machines.
