    Published on

    The Castlevania producer gave a brief hint on what fans can expect to see

    Netflix is busy with adapting popular video game Devil May Cry into an animated series. The series has Castlevania producer Adi Shankar attached, and he has provided an update on the show’s status.

    About the franchise

    Devil May Cry is one of Capcom’s prized assets and longest-running franchises. It first launched for the PlayStation 2 in 2001, and had enjoyed a solid fan base since then. The latest instalment, Devil May Cry V came out in 2019 and became the best-selling title for the franchise.

    The story is about a demon hunter and his allies fighting against the forces of Hell. The protagonist is Dante, a cocky, and witty demon hunter who is half demon himself. Born to a human mother and a powerful demon father called Sparda, Dante sets out to kill demons after the death of his mother and supposed death of his twin brother.

    Dante founded and runs Devil May Cry, a business where people hire demon hunters to take out demonic threats that pose danger to humanity.

    The show’s current status

    Shankar announced the adaptation in 2018, right when Castlevania got renewed for its third season. However, he got busy with other projects after that and no further information was given.

    But news came from IGN Japan that Shankar had completed the scripts for the first season, and also teased that multiple seasons will be there. He also mentioned that Dante will be joining fan-favourite character Lady, and his fallen twin Vergil. Shankar also spoke highly of Capcom for supporting this endeavour, and for giving him the opportunity to work with Capcom producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi. He also joked that none of the characters will be voiced by Chris Pratt, after the actor was recently announced to voice Mario and Garfield.

    Meanwhile, Shankar is also busy adapting other popular video game franchises like  Assassins Creed, Far Cry: Blood Dragon, and PUBG.
