There was a rumour doing the rounds last month which suggested that the Castlevania Netflix animation producer Adi Shankar was in talks with Nintendo for The Legend of Zelda animated series. It has now been revealed by IGN that the Netflix animation is for the Devil May Cry series.
Shankar, in an exclusive interview with IGN’s Jacki Jing, also revealed that his Devil May Cry series “will join Castlevania in what we’re now calling the bootleg multiverse.”
Shankar attributes the Devil May Cry series announcement to the success Castlevania, which he says, “really over-performed. It did crazy well. We immediately got greenlit for Season 3.” Thanking the fans who made this all possible, Shankar said, “I wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for the fans.”
