From showrunners Clive Bradley and Kevin Kolde, Castlevania: Nocturne locates its adventures in a thrilling setting — the atmospheric backdrop of the French Revolution. As the peasant class rises up against the aristocracy, an even darker threat emerges: a cabal of powerful vampires intent on taking over the world and blotting out the sun forever. 

France, 1792 – the height of the French Revolution. In a remote part of western France, the counter-revolutionary aristocracy has forged an alliance with a terrifying Vampire Messiah, who promises to ‘eat the sun’ and unleash an army of vampires and night creatures to crush the revolution and enslave humanity. Annette, a sorceress from the Caribbean, seeks out Richter Belmont, last descendant of the long-fabled family of vampire hunters, to lead the resistance.

Castlevania: Nocturne delivers elegant animation and surprises as our heroes (played by Edward Bluemel, Pixie Davies, Thuso Mbedu, Sydney James Harcourt, and Nastassja Kinski) battle vicious monsters while also facing down their own inner demons.
