"I didn’t want to participate in the massacre of my childhood"
If you have a Netflix subscription and you're a Castlevania fan then chances are you've already digested the four-episode adaptation that has recently gone live on the streaming service. Based on the events seen in Castlevania III, the show includes the vocal talents of Richard...
And better than we could possibly have hoped for, to boot
Out of all of Konami's illustrious back catalogue, Castlevania holds a very special place in the hearts of gamers. From its humble beginnings as an 8-bit take on Bram Stoker's famous Dracula story, it has gone on to create a self-contained world which uses the vampire legend as its foundation...
8 episodes, up from 4
Netflix's animated take on Konami's Castlevania series went live on Friday, and we're sure a great many of you will already have basked in its blood-soaked, foul-mouthed brilliance.

Sink your teeth in
Netflix's Castlevania animated series premiers this week, and off-screen footage has emerged showing the introduction sequence and two key scenes.

Fangs a lot
The more we see of the new Castlevania Netflix series, the harder it is to contain our excitement. Last week we were given the first taste of this animated epic and now we've got this awesome artwork, which is a neat tribute to the cover of the very first NES game. While the series will t
What a horrible night to have a teaser
We’ve known for a while that a short Castlevania show has been in development for Netflix for a little while now, but not much has been seen of the project until now. The first season will only be four episodes long—each one being thirty minutes long—and will more or less be based on Castlevania III:...
Also, will be a hard 'R'
Just yesterday, it finally came to light that the long rumoured film adaptation of Castlevania would be making its appearance as a Netflix series, due to make its season 1 debut later on this year. Not much else was revealed, aside from who would be producing and writing for the show, but now a few more details have been...
If only there was legit way of adding more games
We really loved getting our hands on the NES Mini back in November last year; this diminutively-sized replica of Nintendo's nostalgic first home console really shows off some of the best games in the NES library. However, after a while even the greatest games in the world may feel a little bit stale,...

25 years of memories
This week has been Castlevania features week. We’ve picked our top ten games from the series, reviewed an awful novelisation of Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest, and provided some tips for wannabe Dracula hunters. One thing that has become clear amongst the team is that this series is packed full of memories and nostalgia, as...
Our favourite Dracula quests

Listen to them - the children of the net. What rumours they make

Nintendo of America continues their one-VC-game-a-week strategy, releasing just one new VC game once again this week. Thankfully it's yet another good one!
You might remember Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse being released in Europe on Halloween, which was quite obviously a perfect date. Strangely enough it just didn't get released in the US for over 2 months, but now it's finally here! Konami..
This week's update falls right on Halloween - Nintendo of Europe would be fools not to take advantage of this! Thankfully they are aware of it - All three games released today have a horror theme.

While many of us would probably prefer to see Dracula X: Rondo of Blood appear on the US and European Virtual Console services it’s looking likely that we’ll be treated to one of the game’s prequels first, because the Australian OFLC has recently rated the NES title Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.
