Netflix's animated Castlevania series has revealed its voice-cast and it's a good one.
UPDATE 25/05/2017 4.20pm: Netflix's Castlevania series will launch on 7th July in the UK as well, the streaming service confirmed.
ORIGINAL STORY 25/05/2017 1.02am: Netflix's animated Castlevania series will debut on 7th July, at least in the US and Latin America, and the streaming video company has released its first trailer for the show.
We're still awaiting official confirmation for a UK release date, but hopefully it won't be far behind its North American Netflix brethren.
The co-creator of the SAW series, James Wan, has signed up to direct a film based on the Castlevania games.
Here are the two most important pieces of information you could possibly receive if you're planning on picking up Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles:
Play through the game to level 3' (you can do so by dropping into the first hole you find on level 2 and progressing through the level to fight the alternate boss.) In level 3', head through the level (heading up all stairs) until you find a skeletal snake. Kill it and destroy the hanging plant nearby, probably by using a subweapon, and then jump on the new platform to traverse the section on the upper level. When you get to the end, you should find a tombstone that contains an item which will unlock Symphony of the Night.
Play through the game to level 4. Progress through the level (heading up all stairs) until you reach a section with six skulls in a tower. Destroy them, and when you reach the wall further on, destroy it to find a bomb. Set it off with a whip-crack and do a bit of platforming in the revealed section to get to the upper level. When you get to the end, you should find a candle that contains an item which will unlock the original version of Rondo of Blood.
Konami has put its name on the Leipzig Games Convention list this afternoon, where it promises to show Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 on PS3 for the first time ever.
Paul W.S. Anderson of Event Horizon and Mortal Kombat fame [surely "genius" - Ed] has stepped aside from directing duties on the Castlevania film.
Konami is planning a Castlevania title for PSP - and they're not mucking about either, packing Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood onto the same disc as a full-blown 3D-graphics remake of the latter.
