Adi Shankar and Netflix’s Castlevania series proved that western animated adaptations of Japanese games can be very successful. And now, according to entertainment website, The Wrap, Shankar is now in talks to produce a new TV series based on The Legend of Zelda.
Shankar himself didn’t specify the game, but he did mention that it’s an iconic franchise. In his Instagram post, he said that he’s “working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series”. The producer also admitted on Instagram that the success of Castlevania is making this happen.
There’s still no official word whether this is really The Legend of Zelda or not. However, The Wrap says that their information is reliable. When they tried to talk to Nintendo, a company spokesperson said, “We have nothing to announce on this topic.”
Well, it looks like we would have to wait a bit more for an official announcement. But what do you guys think of a Western-made Legend of Zelda series?
