posted on by Andrew Osmond
Anime Limited has confirmed that it will release the first four-part season of the Castlevania animated series as a Collectors Blu-ray on May 13, exclusively from the Zavvi and AllTheAnime websites.
The series will have English audio. The set will include a 92-page art book featuring character designs and monsters and background art. On-disc extras include storyboards and production animatic galleries.
Anime Limited describes the series as follows: "Trevor Belmont, embittered and excommunicated, finds himself drawn into a battle for the survival of Europe–a region that has brought doom upon itself by taking away the one thing its greatest monster loved."
Producer Adi Shankar announced in 2015 that he was working with Fred Seibert and Kevin Kolde of Frederator Studios on an animated mini-series based on Konami's Castlevania game series. In particular, the story would be based on the 1989 NES/Famicom game Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. The animated version was written by Warren Ellis.
