This is just further proof of how terribly far Konami has fallen really, as if we had not already been given far too much evidence of that in the past decade or so.
The thing that surprises me the most if that this is already in English as well. The hell? I suppose it should not be too surprising given it is on Netflix, but it’s just super weird given how this seemingly came out of nowhere.
Huh. Good to know. Despite being apparently stuck in development hell for a decade, the trailer actually looks rather promising instead of it just getting Duke Nuke’em Forever’d.
Well I figured it was a US production as soon as I heard English; it was just weird to me since Konami, at base, is still a Japanese company (which is a large part of the modern problem with it unfortunately) and, subsequently, Castlevania is primarily a Japanese product that just takes 99% of its influence from European aspects.
Still, this is also good to know. If main branch Konami isn’t really involved, then as much as the lack of promotion might hurt it (though Netflix is at least promoting it), that might ultimately be for the best given Konami’s many bad decisions in the past decade.
never thought that this would be out at all. animation is top notch, the tone and atmosphere is on point and i hope the soundtrack will be faithful to the game series. adi shankar as a producer is kinda underrated since he 's so hyped with the stuff he’s cooking up (i remember him so pumped up when they were promoting the r-rated power/rangers back then). if the 2012 dredd film is anything to go by, this will be a hit.
