Fans of the NES title will instantly recognize this piece of promotional art because it looks very similar to its 1980’s counterpart.

The new Castlevania promo art comes from Famitsu and showcases what looks to be a Belmont with Dracula’s castle looming dauntingly in the distance. Pair that with the ferocious look on Dracula himself and the bloodied colour scheme, this latest piece of artwork just screams excitement for what is to come in the television series. It is also an amazing reassurance to veteran fans of this long-standing franchise that the series will adhere to the older characteristics that made many gamers world-wide fall in love, while still making it fresh and interesting for newer audiences.
