If The Witcher would make a wonderful backdrop for a TV series, then surely so would Hyrule.
The executive producer on Castlevania, Adi Shankhar, announced on Instagram recently that he was working with an "iconic Japanese gaming company" to adapt one of their franchises into a TV series.
It's not being announced until November 16 US time, but The Wrap has reported that the franchise is none other than The Legend of Zelda. They didn't specify what timeline we'd be looking at - is it Breath of the Wild Hyrule, one of the games from the '90s, or a mashup of elements from all of them.
Still, Zelda as a TV series could be neat. Showcasing Ganondorf's brutality across the land could be fun to replicate visually, and the character of Hyrule's inhabitants could be teased out across multiple episodes, almost like a shonen manga.
Hopefully that's not actually what we end up getting, but who knows. Shankhar noted in his post that Castlevania "created this opportunity", and regardless of what the franchise ends up being, or the direction, it's pretty clear that Netflix are looking at the world of video games for more original content.
Maybe that's how we finally get a feature length Uncharted movie made.
