Really want a 16:9 version so there can be gifs of Sypha's icebending/sliding.
I love that this season is looking slightly more action-adventure than the last. I enjoyed S2 a lot, but IDK if Vampire politics can be as interesting without daddy Dracula himself

I wonder if they'll ever move on to one of the other Belmonts or just stay with Trevor.

Symphony of The Night is too big of a deal to NOT adapt. I assume and hope this is the last season with Trevor. As for what they do between this and SoTN? I hope they cover Simon and give Richter some proper showcasing too before his cameo presence in SoTN.

Looking good. I'm guessing there will be a clash between Camilla locking down an entire region to use as a blood farm and Isaac trying to destroy humanity altogether with Trevor and Sypha caught in the middle.

Oh yes, I'm so in :)
Really looking forward to where they move next, but I swear to God if this gets canceled before they reach SotN I'm gonna cry.
Also please more game music. Thank you.

Seems like this will take some cues from Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (PS2, X-Box). Makes sense considering that Hector is the main character with Isaac and Trevor also having prominent roles in that game.

Hopefully this is Trevor's last season so we can pave the way for a new story with new Belmonts.

This trailer gives the vibe that Hector will be taking a backseat this season, So I'm curious as to how much from Curse of Darkness they'll actually take.

Curious, Hector is the one character I feel they directly adapted the original design as closely as possible



Sypha, Dracula, and Alucard certainly look like their game counterparts, but the designs themselves seem new and updated. Trevor Belmont looks way better in this show than he ever has anywhere else, and should be the standard baseline for him going forward.

Still a lot of made up monsters in that trailer, but cool they are still slipping in regular Castlevania monsters like the Malachi at 1:29. Big draw for me with those games was always the monster designs and music so the more they put in the better.

Woo time to see which version of the trailer they went with

We aren't actually--

Frederator doesn't actually do the animation for a lot of their shows afaik. Castlevania's is handled by Powerhouse Animation.
You are correct :)

Very little *animation* is done in the states anymore. Writing, boarding, designs, layouts, timing, editing, VA work etc is usually done here at the studios, but the actual animation is usually done overseas unless there's something very specific a director or team wants to do themselves. Edit: For television anyway, some feature stuff is still done here like Disney movies.

Thank you for the details!

Were there a lot of new monsters in the last two? I don't remember.

Seasons 1 and 2 had these guys in it

Looking good. Kind of ished they kept syphas power level lower. It feels like She should be able to instantly kill anything from the powers she shown, but we’ll have to waitand see how it plays out. And I still wish we’d seen more iconic monsters. I wonder if they’re purposely avoiding them for som reason.

We don't know, but probably not.
You’re probably right, but there’s one voice in the trailer that would sound exactly like I’d want grants to sound.

For some reason, Grants absence has been unreasonable annoying me.

I remember Ellis had an idea for him when he was still going to adapt CV3 as a comic, but I guess he fell out of love with the idea once it became a movie and then a TV series.

So is this not curse of Darkness? Or did they just decide to do away with Hector being the protagonist to give the audience more Trevor and Sypha? I'm thinking this specific trailer is Trevor/Sypha focused for initial impressions, and will be more Hector-focused on actual release or latter trailers.

I doubt that they would make such a mistake after all the time they spent in Season 2 setting him up to be an eventual hero.

They made a point to show us his forge master skills and spent a lot of time on dialogue scenes between him and his team, setting up a conflict with Isaac.

The trailer shows him locked in a cage? I expect he'll break out and be a major player. Maybe I'm giving the show too much credit but all that build up in Season 2 felt very deliberate. His role is not done.

Is Alucard a minor part of the new season? He didn't seem that prominent in the trailers unlike Trevor and Sypha.
