Devil May Cry animated series announced from Castlevania executive producer, connected by ‘bootleg multiverse’

Don't worry. The jabronis in Hollywood won't mess it up.

Devil May Cry 5

An animated series adaptation of Capcom’s Devil May Cry franchise is in the works from Castlevania animated series executive producer Adi Shankar, the creator confirmed to IGN.

The Devil May Cry animated series will join the Castlevania animated series in what Shankar called a “bootleg multiverse.” Shankar did not further elaborate on what this means, but teased, “Let the speculation begin. You can read into that all you want.”

Shankar assured that he “acquired these (Devil May Cry) rights myself so the jabronis in Hollywood don’t fuck this one up, too,” which should allow him more creative freedom.

Further information was not announced.
