But there's still no release date
One surprisingly good animated series released by Netflix in recent years is Castlevania. It's based on the video game series of the same name and stars the one and only Trevor Belmont who must save the world from Dracula's army of demons.

Update: Maybe not
Update: An individual reached out to Samuel Deats – the director of the Castlevania Netflix series – via Twitter and asked if the 1st December listing for the third season was true (thanks, GoNintendo). This was the director's reply: HAH, that's news to me and would certainly be scary considering we're still working on the...
Another crack of the whip from Konami

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.

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.

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.
