Adi Shankar, the producer behind the widely acclaimed Castlevania animated series on Netflix, has teased a new video game adaptation project announcement for next month, and some have already speculated as to what it is.
In a post to his official Instagram account, Adi Shankar revealed he had some big news set to be revealed on Nov. 16.
“I can confirm that I’m working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series,” Shankar wrote.
Though no details have been revealed about what that series may be or which company he is referring to, that hasn’t stopped speculation from erupting as to what it is.
Most notably, a rumor about Shankar’s involvement with a Legend of Zelda adaptation has surfaced thanks to a story by The Wrap posted on Oct. 29.
In it, the publication claimed to have learned exclusively that the series in question was The Legend of Zelda, though neither Nintendo nor Shankar have confirmed the claims since the post’s publication.
The news comes on the tail end of the release of the Castlevania animated series’ second season. Based on the storied video game franchise, it follows the exploits of Trevor Belmont and his allies – Sypha, a powerful magic user, and Alucard, the son of Dracula – as they try to stop Dracula from wiping out humanity in revenge for the death of his wife, Lisa.
The second season has been widely acclaimed by fans and critics alike for its characterization and growth of the cast as well as its applaudable animation.
