Castlevania Animated Series Producer Wants to Make a “Dark Metroid” Anime

Hot on the heels of the first Castlevania animated series launching on Netflix and being instantly renewed for a second season, producer Adi Shankar is setting his sights on even more franchises to adapt into animated form.

While the producer has already been tapped to produce an “anime” based on the Assassin’s Creed series, he’s apparently a big fan of Nintendo games as well. Shankar said he wants to make “Dark Metroid in the same anime style,” in a slight tease to Nintendo Life.

Unfortunately, that’s all we have to go on for now – however make sure to sound off in the comments below with what  you’d like to see in a Metroid animated series!
