Netflix’s Castlevania series launches this week. If you’ve not played the game you’ve probably heard about it as there’s quite a history to the series. In this 10 minute video the Distractotron team walk us through the first appearance of the title, from its translated Japanese name, and how it ended up being called Castlevania.
There’s a whole slew of games that use the name, or a similar name, or are a spin-off from one of the sequels. Some of these games are considered part of the mythos and some have been removed from the official histories. Do you know which? I used the video to swat up, spoiler free, ahead of my Netflix binge this weekend.
