The Castlevania Netflix series gets its first teaser trailer

The upcoming Castlevania animated series which Netflix officially announced earlier this year has gotten both its first teaser trailer and a release date.

Going by the title shown in the teaser, it looks like the series will simply be called Castlevania. As for the teaser itself, it doesn’t really reveal too much in terms of plot, but it looks like familiar characters like Simon Belmont and even Alucard will be making appearances, suggesting that the series will take heavy cues from the early Castlevania games (something which should make fans sigh with relief).

We’ll get to find out just how closely the series skews towards the games off which it is based when it arrives on July 7. Watch the trailer above.
