Digital downloads? Pffft. Not in this future, chum
Striking Vipers is the name of one of the three new episodes from season five of Netflix's Black Mirror and, as usual, it is just as bleak as ever about how technology might impact our lives in the near-future. With a stellar cast featuring Anthony Mackie (Falcon from the MCU) and Yahya...
Stranger things have happened...
In recent years, Netflix has gravitated more and more towards the video game industry.

Wall chicken is the best chicken
For anyone who wasn't confident the talent behind the Castlevania animated series on Netflix was respecting the source material, this should put any concerns to rest once and for all. An eagle-eyed viewer of season two has spotted a cartoon chicken bone poking out from one of the walls within Dracula's castle during...
Ten more episodes are on the way
The Castlevania animated series currently screening on Netflix is an example of how video games can be successfully adapted to other forms of entertainment. The first season comprised of four episodes left fans wanting more and the second season made up of eight episodes has proven to be vastly superior - with the...
Read our spoiler-free review of Netflix's second blood-sucking season
The first series of Netflix's gore-soaked and expletive-packed Castlevania adaptation went down a treat, as you'll know if you read our exhaustive review. While it was a little on the short side, it did an utterly superb job of setting the scene and fleshing out the main...
Business as usual
When Telltale Games released the original Walking Dead series in 2012, it was a breakout success. The company went on to acquire the rights to franchises such as Batman, Minecraft and even Game of Thrones. Taking on so many big-name p
Official announcement expected
In recent times, every franchise under the sun appears to be receiving a Netflix adaptation. With source material seemingly running low, there's been a sudden shift towards video games. The Castlevania animated series already has a season up on the digital streaming service and now it looks like Diablo could be the...
The arrival of Castlevania season two draws closer, with Netflix releasing the official trailer. This next chapter in the series will be comprised of eight new episodes and will be available to stream on 26th October. As gripping as the first season was, a common complaint was the length of it. With only four...
Releases worldwide this October
The developer Niantic wasn’t exactly a household name until it released the insanely popular smartphone hit, Pokémon GO, in partnership with The Pokémon Company. Since then, the American-based developer has been able to secure the rights to work with other big-name IP such as Harry Potter. Now, falling back...
Just in time for Halloween
One of the better video game adaptations in recent years has been that of Castlevania, a Netflix show that adapts the popular vampire-slaying action series to an anime format. Though the initial season was quite short, it hit all the right beats that it needed to, and got plenty of fans excited for what would be coming...

If you’ve been wondering what the latest developments are with the Castlevania Netflix series, the writer of the animation, Warren Ellis, recently provided a small update via Twitter. His message is the second season of the bloody and violent show will arrive later this year. He’s also reconfirmed it will be comprised...
It is not by my hand that I am once again given a new series
We really liked Netflix's Castlevania series. Adapting a beloved franchise is always tricky, but it struck the right balance between doing something fresh and new with the source material and honouring the original games - in this case, the story of Castlevania III. The series clearly did...

The Pokémon Sun And Moon anime series has just hit Netflix. 43 episodes are currently available, giving you the chance to experience the new adventures of Ash and Pikachu. The focus of the series is Ash's arrival at the Pokémon School in the Alola region, where he meets new...
Time to make the Switch, surely?
After a year on sale, it's incredible to think that we still don't have Netflix on Switch, despite assurances (and rumours) that the popular streaming service is coming. The portable nature of the console would make it perfect for mobile movie watching, but at the present moment in time it doesn't seem like...
Eight episodes this time around
We throughly enjoyed Netflix's animated adaptation of Konami's Castlevania series, and if you did too then you'll be pleased to learn that the promised second season is coming this summer. Scribe Warren Ellis announced the news on Twitter, pointing out that eight episodes will go live later this year.

Video streaming app is "locked and loaded"
The incredible sales success of the Switch has masked a few irksome issues people have with the console, one of the most pressing being the lack of any video streaming capabilities, despite it being the perfect tool for portable binge-watching. However, if a fresh rumour is to be believed, this won't be...
"I grew up on Castlevania. I play Symphony of the Night to this day"
Netflix's Castlevania series may not have pleased absolutely everybody, but we certainly enjoyed it - and it seems have gained favour with plenty of hardcore followers of Konami's vampire-slaying video game franchise. We've already spoken to producer
"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. Penned by author and comic book legend Warren Ellis and featuring some impressive vocal talent, it's a surprisingly effective take on
In the UK and US, at least
For those of you excited about the Castlevania Netflix series, the wait is over (though may vary per territory). US viewer and site regular Rjejr highlighted to us that it's out now in the US, and we've confirmed it's also live in the UK. There are four episodes of between 23-25 minutes each, which may not sound much but...
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.

Or should that be voices?

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
Stranger Things could happen
One of the key features that some Nintendo Switch owners would like to see is the inclusion of apps for their favourite streaming services, such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. While the Wii U supports a whole host of these now, the apps appeared over time as and when Nintendo could work this out with the various...
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...
Written by Warren Ellis
Plenty of video game franchises go through the rumour mill when it comes to TV and movie adaptations, but Castlevania has been an ever-present and persuasive possibility for quite a while. The talk reached a peak in 2015 when producer Adi Shankar said he was working on "a super violent Castlevania mini-series with my homies...
Now you can hide your streaming shame in profiles
The Wii U doesn't have the same range of apps as its competitors, but it has been able to boast of Netflix since day one. The app itself did its best to put the GamePad to use, but was never as slick or feature-rich as it could have been. A fresh update has now gone live to improve matters, with a...
"The article in question is not based on correct information"
Remember that story about Netflix working on a live-action Zelda series? It got people pretty excited - and understandably so, given the popularity of the franchise. However, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has poured a big old bucket of disappointment over the whole venture by pointing...

Spot the differences
Gone are the days of slotting in a cartridge and simply playing a game, as consoles have become multimedia devices for surfing the web and watching slightly different TV. The Wii U's Netflix app does a pretty decent job with the service, happily handling the HD streaming and being nice and functional all around. But still,...
Merrily down the stream
Netflix has launched in the UK and Ireland — and it's available on Wii.

We go one-on-one with popcorn in one hand and a stylus in the other
In many cities across North America you can still find them: all-but-deserted video rental stores trying every special deal and coupon in their cap to reclaim business from the rampantly successful postal-based Netflix service. But for many, getting movies in the mail isn't its best...
Another feather in the 3DS's cap
While free video content have started being rolled out to Japanese and European 3DS users, the subscription-based Netflix streaming service has launched on the North American Nintendo eShop, allowing existing Netflix members on the $7.99 price plan and upwards to stream content onto their 3DS consoles.

The partnership continues
Netflix is already available for Wii users in the United States and Canada, and is also scheduled to hit 3DS users this summer. That's not where it ends, as the streaming service is also coming to Wii U. In an interview conducted by AllThingsD, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata was quizzed on a number of topics; from the things Nintendo hopes to accomplish with the launch of..
Movies on the go
Wii received Netflix support some time ago, and both Nintendo and Netflix are obviously keen on the two firms working together again as Satoru Iwata has just announced the video streaming service is coming to Nintendo 3DS this summer. All users with an unlimited plan for $7.99 a month or above will be able to stream movies and TV...

Grab your Wii Remote and start streaming
Back in July, it was announced that Canada would be getting in on the Netflix service and logistically, that meant Canadian Wii owners could be treated to the same sort of console streaming that their neighbours South of the border have been enjoying since April.

Another reason to never leave the couch
It may be late to the party, but Netflix's movie streaming service has arrived on Wii consoles in the U.S. via a free disc for subscribers. Despite being stuck in standard definition, those lamenting the lack of a Wii no Ma or BBC iPlayer equivalent in the US will appreciate the increased functionality. Compared to its console cousins, the service performs..
Get your disc if you haven't already
Back in the day Nintendo announced its intention of focusing the Wii as a straightforward gaming machine in the face of the competition throwing specs around, but we're in a very different situation today. Well, not that the hardware has changed much, but what we can do on it has certainly progressed. As of...
DSi XL to replace drive-in movies
Wii owners will soon be able to stream video to their machine via Netflix, but what if you want to watch a video in a room that’s not the living room? Well, a new Netflix survey hints at the possibility of the DS being turned into a portable video device in future. Although at the moment the survey is only...
