Video games being adapted into cartoons isn’t anything new, with as far back as the early 90’s getting shows based on Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog. Even Castlevania got to appear in a TV show through Simon being part of the cast in Captain N: The Game Master. But the iconic Konami hero might be show up on the TV screen in the future.
And though he doesn’t actually name-drop Castlevania, we know that Dredd’s Adi Shankar previously confirmed Seibert’s involvement in a show that would seemingly “flip the vampire sub-genre on its head”. “The goal is to bring hard hitting anime to America and be America’s first animated series for adults”.
Last week, Fred Seibert, the founder of Frederator Studios (Adventure Time, The FairlyOddparents, Bee And Puppy Cat), gave hope to fans of the iconic game Castlevania with some not-so-subtle hints that an animated series might be in the works. As of now, Hollywood plans on dishing out a reboot movie of Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander, and Sony is moving forward with Shawn Levy’s Uncharted movie.
Frederator Studios, famous for shows like Adventure Time on Cartoon Network and Fairly Odd Parents on Nick, hinted they are working on the project. This is great news, as the studio produces quality shows and I personally enjoyed much of the studios work. We will report on this as further information releases but if you are a fan of this iconic game series, it may be entering the realm of animation in the near future.
