Netflix Castlevania director distances self from inflammatory marketing

Castlevania Nocturne

The director for Castlevania Nocturne has distanced himself from an inflammatory Tweet from the show’s official account.

The tweet in question highlighted one character badmouthing Richter Belmont, of the same Belmont family that basically defines the Castlevania franchise. The tweet has since been deleted but you can see it below:

However some fans understandably interpreted the tweet as an attack on not only the source material for the show, but also the fans of the franchise.

In response, Castlevania director Samuel Deats distanced himself from the inflammatory marketing.

The director was far from the first person to take issue with the tweet’s message and fans quickly began criticizing Netflix while also airing their grievances about the show’s latest season.

One enthusiastic user saw an opportunity to promote alternative vampire media, urging fans to check out Vampire Hunter D instead.

Castlevania Nocturne has unfortunately found itself in the middle of the online culture war. Some users were concerned about the pro-justice messaging in the series despite this season taking place during the French Revolution where it could be thematically appropriate.
