Castlevania Season 3 is coming soon, looking cool

The third season of Netflix's thoroughly decent Castlevania series was delayed from its original December release date (opens in new tab), and will now be arriving on March 5—all at once as is their way. There's a trailer for it showing plenty of action and horror and swordplay. The first two seasons of Netflix's Castlevania had some great anime-style fight scenes and it doesn't look that's about to change.

According to the plot summary, "Belmont and Sypha settle into a village with sinister secrets, Alucard mentors a pair of admirers, and Isaac embarks on a quest to locate Hector." Hopefully this third season finds a bit more time for the heroes, who spent most of the previous season hanging out in a library while the villains spent months scheming and betraying each other and carrying out their plots.

Two entirely watchable TV shows based on videogames—what a time to be alive.

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
