That Works take on a video game weapon that dates back all the way to 1986. But rather than the pixelated flail found in the 8-bit Castlevania, they built a replica of the one Trevor Belmont finds in the 21st century animated series. It’s a painstaking process to build such a complex weapon using blacksmithing techniques.
Part of Konami’s 50th anniversary celebration, the Castlevania Anniversary Collection is a digital bundle that comes with eight classic games from the series, as well as an eBook with details from developers and artists. Available on Windows, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch for $20.
Fans of the vampire hunting video games will be thrilled to see this animated series headed to Netflix. But this is no 8-bit NES game for kiddies. It’s dark, bloody, violent, and “R-rated as f**k.” We’re super excited its showrunner is Adi Shankar, of POWER/RANGERS fame.
