Netflix revealed one tiny tidbit of information on Wednesday afternoon that has retro gaming fans abuzz.

Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017

The item was buried in a press release detailing a variety of Netflix news revealed at an event in New York City. While that’s all we know officially about the project, the folks over at i09 did a little digging and put together a few more potential pieces of the puzzle.

Back in 2015, producer Adi Shankar (The Grey) announced on his Facebook page that he was working on a Castlevania show.

Could it be the same project? Probably. But we’ll have to wait for Netflix to tell us more about how it plans to make a classic vampire-slaying game into a modern TV show.
