Netflix has released an official trailer for its upcoming Castlevania spin-off series, Castlevania: Nocturne. The two-minute-and-thirty-second snippet follows Castlevania‘s main character/vampire hunter Richter Belmont, highlighting a world of action during the French Revolution. The show’s concept is based on the 1993 video game Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and its 1997 sequel, Symphony of the Night.
“France, 1792 — the height of the French Revolution. In a remote part of western France, the counter-revolutionary aristocracy has allied with a terrifying Vampire Messiah, who promises to ‘eat the sun’ and unleash an army of vampires and night creatures to crush the revolution and enslave humanity,” reads the synopsis.
“Annette, a sorceress from the Caribbean, seeks out Richter Belmont, last descendant of the long-fabled family of vampire hunters, to lead the resistance.”
The series’s first season will run for eight episodes and premieres Thursday, Sept. 28, on Netflix.
