Castlevania: Nocturne is all set to become the next installment in what’s rapidly becoming Netflix’s Castlevania franchise. How do I know this, you might ask? Well, it’s mostly to do with the new main trailer Netflix just dropped for this dark fantasy horror series. Not only that, but it even comes with a date for when we’ll finally get to watch it. Don’t believe me? Then why not watch that trailer for yourself below, and revel in the blood, vampires, and bloody vampires?
Castlevania: Nocturne Main Trailer ~ Details
Netflix has just released a new main trailer for Castlevania: Nocturne on YouTube. Said trailer shows of the dark fantasy horror action we’ve come to know and love from the first Castlevania series, also on Netflix. The only difference this time is that Clive Bradley is the writer and showrunner this time around instead of Warren Ellis. Oh, and the different characters and setting, since this spin-off takes place during the French Revolution in 1792 instead of in Wallachia in 1455.
So when will we get to see this Castlevania spin-off? The end of that main trailer reveals that Castlevania: Nocturne will make its global streaming debut on September 27, 2023. Of course, it’s a Netflix exclusive, so you’ll need a paid subscription to watch it.
However, Netflix also reveals that they will be premiering the first episode of Castlevania: Nocturne a day early on September 26, 2023 during their Drop 01 virtual event. You can watch that event on Twitch, Tudum, or on Netflix YouTube. If you live in Brazil or India though, then you’ll want the Netflix Brasil YouTube channel or the Netflix India YouTube channel respectively.
