Devil May Cry will return to the animated concept after the production of Madhouse to, this time, drink from the producer of Castlevania
To begin with, I want to say that if there are doubts about why I write ‘anime’ in quotes in this news about ” Devil May Cry ” it is precisely because what we have before us is about an animated series, like ” Castlevania ” from Netflix , but nowadays the Japanese term is used more and more frequently. Leaving this aside, today news has finally been revealed about this new exercise in animation by Dante and company, and no little thing has been said precisely .
Devil May Cry animated series will follow the same format as Castlevania
It was thanks to the IGN team , who had an interview with Adi Shankar , the producer of the aforementioned Netflix Castlevania (which I loved and want more of) who will also produce the animated series “Devil May Cry”, which All of the following weight details have been released :
- All the scripts for season 1 of the Devil May Cry ‘anime’ are already written . Shankar assures that they are amazing and that he is super excited about it all.
- The producer also confirms that season 1 will consist of 8 chapters , but this will be nothing more than the beginning. ❗
- In the same way that has already been seen with Castlevania, the idea is to visit different arcs of Devil May Cry also with different seasons , so there will be much more of Dante and company. ❗❗
- And speaking of Dante and company, Shankar has confirmed that characters like Lady and Virgil will be present . ❗
- Throughout the build process, Shankar has worked closely with Capcom and especially Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who acted as the producer of the original Devil May Cry anime (another reason I put it in quotes in the headline) when Madhouse took the lead. challenge years ago.
- There is currently no release date for this Devil May Cry animated series, but production is scheduled to begin in early 2022 .
Honestly, if with “Castlevania” (a franchise with which I did not have the slightest contact) they already managed to hook me to whatever they have prepared for the future, with “Devil May Cry” that I have been a fan for years, the truth is that I have high hopes. In any case, it seems that we will have to be patient , because it seems complicated to me that a premiere can take place next year.
