Producer Adi Shankar has announced he’s working on a “super violent” Castlevania animated mini-series that is expected to be dark and satirical.
In an interview with Collider, Shankar reveals the team behind Adventure Time and The Fairly OddParents have acquired the rights from Konami for the project, which will be based on the story of Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse. While the original Castlevania would seem like the most logical choice for this series, Castlevania 3 is chronologically the earlier game in terms of its narrative.
Shankar reveals the animated series will be influenced by some well-known anime like Akira, Ghost in the Shell and Ninja Scroll. He expects there to be a lot of violence and gore in the series as the goal will be “to bring hard hitting anime to the America” and to be the first animated series directly geared towards adults.
The announcement doesn’t come with an expected release date nor do we know where it will be made available. Hopefully we’ll get the answers to these questions in the near future as an adult-oriented Castlevania animated series sounds right up our alley.
