Producer Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey) announced on Wednesday that he is working on an animated mini-series based on Konami's Castlevania game series. Shankar also announced that he is working with Fred Seibert and Kevin Kolde of Frederator Studios (Adventure Time, The Fairly OddParents), as Frederator Studios had acquired the rights to adapt the series.



Shankar told the Collider website that he is basing the series' story on the Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse game. Shankar states that the series will be "dark, [and] satirical," influenced by anime such as Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Ninja Scroll, as well as the American animated series Young Justice.

Shankar further stated that the series would contain "easter eggs" for fans of the game, and the musical score will "use the heavy metal electro guitar vibe found in the early games."

Nice to see western animators putting out something potentially interesting.

Curious why they chose III over SotN.

Wonder if they will get one of the series' composers to do the composition at least.

That's some exciting news. I'm all for western studios getting out of their comfort zone and trying to make something similar to an anime. When I saw, "influenced by anime such as Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and Ninja Scroll" I got stoked.

We actually have two video game adaptations in the works now. The Mega Man one and now this one. I hope for the best for them and I wonder where the heck they'll air it. Maybe Toonami? I'd look elsewhere if possible. Maybe AMC can throw them a bone??? (nah probably not). At least stream it on CR.

I wish they picked CIV since that's the best one in my opinion.

I'm going to try and keep my expectations under control. After all, Konami may decide they should be involved. No one wants that. NO ONE.

Oooooh burn! Also it's suppose to come out Q2 next year

PS: I still bitter about him making No. 9 3D, compared to the awesome 2D hand drawn graphics that it was originally announced to be.

CIV is the reboot of I, so I assume they wanted to start earlier and incl Grant, Syfa, and Alucard.

Just flip through it and you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about.
