First Teaser Poster for Castlevania Animated Series

We’ve gotten the first look at the upcoming Castlevania animated series.

The news comes via the game’s poster (featured above), revealed by producer Adi Shankar over on his official Facebook page.

Here’s a refresher on the 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 being handled by Federator Studios, penned by comic book visionary Warren Ellis, with executive producers including Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert, and Adi Shankar.

Season one for Castlevania is set to launch sometime this year.

    That’s a pretty cool image. It would be interesting if the entire series takes place in the castle.

    I’m reeeeeeeally prayin’ to god this actually comes out good. I’ve seen too many video game franchise films/shows that suck; my heart can’t take it if Castlevania falls victim to the tide…

  • Personaknight

    This and Samurai Jack coming back. I’m ready. Probbably gonna be original characters, but I would love to see Alucard fighting evil Richter.

  • NukeA6

    Not keeping my hopes up yet. I’ll wait for that trailer.

  • Dom The Elegy

    They already said it’s gonna be an adaptation of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse. So Alucard, yes, Richter, unfortunately not.

  • Fenrir007

    I wanna get hyped over this, but I know this is just setting myself to great sadness.

  • Matz

    Would have preferred a poster with a design of some of the characters to give us an idea about what to expect from this project.

    Still kinda hyped for this just because I love Castlevania

    Well, Ellis is a genuinely good writer, so at least this won’t be a piece of shit from a narrative standpoint. More importantly, he is dedicated, by which I mean that he…may actually play the fucking games!

    WTF? How do you pass from a guy that sorta looks like a pirate to a Voldo wannabe?

    Giving the guy who made Death Note free reign

    If done right this could be fantastic. Though I feel this is an IP where it can get messed up and be a missed opportunity VERY easily. They really need to kill it with the art direction. And no family friendly PG shit either, I wanna see zombies, werewolves and the like getting torn up.
