Castlevania didn't just become one of the biggest video game franchises when it first debuted on the Nintendo Entertainment System, but decades following its introduction, the franchise became one of the most popular animated series on Netflix. With the first series ending following the conclusion of season four, Castlevania Nocturne is set to return to the world of Dracula and the Belmonts with a new whip-wielder in the driver's seat. Now, the streaming service is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the animated adventures of Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard.
The video that Netflix shared was easily one of the biggest battles of the four-season series, with Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard taking the fight directly to Dracula's castle and fighting against hordes of his creatures of the night. It was in this battle that Powerhouse was able to really show off their stuff, as the fight remains one of the most talked about in the show as a whole. While the story of this vampire-hunting trio has come to an end, the story will continue with Richter as the protagonist in Castlevania Nocturne, and we definitely wouldn't be surprised if both Dracula and Alucard, immortal as they are, also make an appearance.
Netflix Geeked shared the Castlevania video on its Official Twitter Account, giving fans the chance to once again dive into one of the biggest battles of the animated series that saw the trio of monster slayers shows off their unique skills in taking down some of Dracula's strongest soldiers:

Richter Belmont appeared in the Castlevania video game franchise decades ago, having roles in games such as Castlevania Rondo of Blood and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. While we don't have an exact release date as to when the franchise will make a comeback on Netflix via Nocturne, there is plenty of material from the streaming service and the animators at Studio Powerhouse to pull from thanks to the Konami franchise. Here's hoping that Nocturne runs for just as long as the original animated series, if not longer.
