Netflix's Castlevania showrunner also wants to make a 'Dark Metroid' anime


Metroidvania all up in your TV

Now that the Castlevania series has premiered on Netflix and everyone who's interested has gotten their peepers on it, it's time to move forward to the next shiny thing. Showrunner Adi Shankar, fresh off of the announcement he was working on an Assassin's Creed animated assassination, said he'd also be interested in a Metroid series. 

In an interview with Nintendo Life, Shankar said he'd want to tackle a "dark" Metroid series "in the same anime style." Since Metroid seems like a very anime friendly series, I'd be down for it. If it were to take a risk and not have a lot of dialogue (a la Samurai Jack), that'd be absolutely perfect. 

As for the currently in the works Castlevania season 2, Shankar confirms the scripts for the eight episodes have already been written. So, hey, that's a good sign.
