Netflix's Next Vampiric Animated Adventure Is Castlevania: Nocturne

The brief teaser gives us a glimpse at one of the film's primary protagonists, but beyond that, very little information about Nocturne has been disclosed, not even an estimated release date.

Richter Belmont is the protagonist of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood as well as a significant figure in the renowned Symphony of the Night.

In the novel Nocturne, the protagonist Richter is a distant descendant of the vampire hunter Trevor Belmont and the sorceress Sypha Belnades.

The story focuses on Richter's exploits as a vampire hunter in late 18th-century France, during the time of the French Revolution.

Maria Renard, herself a formidable magic user with her own distant link to the Belmont legacy, will join forces with Richter in this new instalment of the series.

Maria Renard previously appeared alongside Richter as a little girl in Rondo of Blood.
