Good news for fans of Frederator Studio’s hugely popular animated Castlevania series. VIZ Media has announced preorders for the home media release of the first season of the show. The four-episode first season of Castlevania was a big hit when it first streamed on Netflix last year.
Castlevania will be available on Blu-ray, with an MSRP of $24.98 U.S. / $29.99 CAN, and on DVD, with an MSRP of $19.98 U.S. / $24.99 CAN.
Bonus features include on-disc storyboards and art galleries for both the BD and DVD. Exclusive Blu-ray extras include the sketch art-to-animation animatic sequences of the series’ most exciting moments!
Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself. In Season 1, 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.
“With its dark, multi-layered storyline filled with demons, magic, and action, Castlevania has established itself as a series that adeptly expands the original premise of the classic video game,” says Brian Ige, VIZ Media’s Vice President of Animation. “We look forward to the series being a highlight on many fans’ holiday wish lists this season.”
Originally slated to arrive this past summer, the second season of Castlevania (which will have eight episodes) will debut on Netflix in the next few months. A third season of the show has already been greenlit.
