As you jump into the story, you can either listen to this before or while you read the rest of article. There is no wrong choice.
“We have a project right now that we’re doing that needs to go unnamed, based on one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years, that we’ve had in our shop for 12 years without being able to get it started. But there were great characters and a great story, and eventually we got it going.”
From that, people have deduced that Castlevania is the title that they’re working on (mostly thanks to the fact that Seibert’s studio owns the rights to Castlevania). Fans of the Castlevania franchise (or vampires in general) should be excited for a number of reasons. The first of which is that Adventure Time is a very smart, witty, and visually stunning show which is meant for kids, but contains a very adult flavor. Anything that a member of that team does, should come out as gold. Another reason to be excited is because of Shankar. His name may not sound familiar, but his work might. Have you ever seen that Power Rangers parody that showed up about a year ago? It starred James Van Der Beek and Katie Sackhoff. It was nothing like the childhood Power Rangers many of you watched as kids, and it blew people’s minds away. Before that, he did a little short about Thomas Jane’s version of The Punisher called, “Dirty Laundry.”
Take it all with a grain of salt, as they say. Shankar made his announcement about a year ago now, and there has been no word about it since then. Keep your fingers crossed.
