Devil May Cry is getting its own animated series on Netflix. The news was confirmed earlier today on Twitter by Castlevania executive producer Adi Shankar, who will also be in charge of the adaptation. The new show will be share a multiverse with Castlevania, which suggests the possibility for multiple crossovers. If you're anxious about how Devil May Cry might be handled given the lackluster history of video game adaptations, you might take comfort in learning that Shankar is right up there with you.

Telling IGN, Shankar explained that he "acquired these [Devil May Cry] rights [himself] so the jabronis in Hollywood don't f-k this one up too". It turns out that he is making an animated multiverse that includes both the Castlevania Netflix show, as well as an upcoming Devil May Cry series. Two seasons deep, the gothed-out story of Trevor Belmont "really over-performed", he revealed.

It's a weird idea for sure, and some are quick to point out that a Devil May Cry anime series has already been made. It has thus far spawned three sequels and will release a fourth, Devil May Cry 5, on March 8, 2019. Next up: Capcom's Devil May Cry. He's the hero we need right now, especially if you want to see Dante and his pals (and his Devil Trigger abilities) brought to life in a satisfying way. Let us know in the comment section below!
