Netflix recently released a teaser trailer for their latest animated entry in the Castlevania universe, dubbed Castlevania: Nocturne. While the trailer certainly doesn’t show off much in terms of action, it does confirm a key rumor that started after the 4th and final season of the original Castlevania animated series ended. Castlevania: Nocturne will feature Richter Belmont and will seemingly take place around the same time period as the “Dracula X: Rondo of Blood and even possibly “Symphony of the Night” video games. This could mean a number of key events that could be presented in the animated series based on the original source material. Many are hoping that this could mean the return of the Alucard, the Son of Dracula that assisted Trever Belmont in his fight against Dracula many years ago. It will certainly be interesting to see how the writers of Nocturne put their own spin on this later Castlevania timeline, but I have high hopes, as the original four seasons of Castlevania were excellent.

From the moment he touched an Intellivision controller in 1985, Mike knew that he had experienced something incredible in the world of video games that would shape him for the rest of his life. From that point forward, he would make it his mission to experience video games from every console generation going forward. Eventually, he would become obsessed with magazines that wrote about the games he loved, and it would inspire him to start writing about games himself in 1998 for various local media outlets. Always looking for an opportunity to branch out, Mike eventually coded the foundation of a website that would ultimately morph into Gamer Logic Dot Net, an independent video game site that continues to cover modern and classic video game today. Additional, Mike composes music for indie games under his other alias "Unleaded Logic"
