Netflix announced a release date for their anticipated “Castlevania” series, alongside a short teaser trailer to give us a small taste of what to expect. Appearing to be loosely based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, the trailer gives us a glimpse at several key characters: Trevor Belmont, Alucard, and Sypha Belnades.
In Castlevania III, the year is 1476, and Dracula is ravaging Europe with an army of monsters. The Belmont family of vampire hunters, once exiled from Wallachia, are called into action by the Church. They feared the Belmonts’ “super-human” power, but with Dracula threatening to swallow Europe in darkness, they are left with no choice but to call Trevor Belmont, current wielder of the legendary whip, Vampire Killer. Joining Trevor on his quest are 3 unlikely allies: the pirate Grant Danasty; Sypha Belnades, a young but powerful sorceress; and Alucard, the dhampir son of Dracula himself.
Netflix’s “Castlevania” season 1 is set to release on July 7th. Check out the trailer below.
