It’s time to catch Castlevania fever. For me, it will hopefully be better later rather than never.

As I mentioned on my personal blog, the Castlevania series is one that I never had much exposure to. Over time, I have come to respect the franchise and have a sense of the games people like and dislike, but the franchise never moved up the pecking order in my life-long backlog. It’s not because I had no interest in the series. Far from it. Super Castlevania IV is one of the only games in the series I spent much time with through my local video rental store back in the early 1990s. It remains one of my favorite “games I rented multiple times” category, and it is one I look forward to getting acquainted with again soon.

That’s because I intend to spend a chunk of my June gaming playing Castlevania games as we lead up to the debut of the animated Castlevania series on Netflix (June 7). I will say right now that these may not necessarily be full playthroughs of the games, although I will do my best to try. After looking over the expansive list of Castlevania titles in the franchise’s long-standing history, I know I will not be able to play each game. Here are some of the game sI am sure I will play at some point during the month on Twitch:

  • Castlevania (NES)
  • Castlevania: The Adventure (Game Boy)
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest (NES)
  • Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse (NES)
  • Super Castlevania IV (SNES)
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines (Genesis)
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation)
  • Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (GBA)
  • Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (GBA)

I may add to that list as the month goes on, depending on time. Stay tuned for stream days and times. You can follow on Twitter or stay tuned to the Discord channel for breaking announcements.

In addition, to live streaming my gameplay on Twitch, I will also attempt to share my thoughts on the games I have played on the blog. I don’t know if I’ll have any groundbreaking revelations for long-time fans of the franchise, but if you want to know what I think as someone who never got fully invested in the series has to say, I hope you will check it out.

Castlevania will be available on Netflix on July 7, 2017.
