Adi Shankar is in talks to produce a The Legend of Zelda TV series based on Nintendo‘s video game.

The Zelda franchise sold more than 80 million copies worldwide over the years. The game was created in 1986 by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka, featuring a hero named Link who has to rescue Princess Zelda and the kingdom of Hyrule from the evil Ganon while collecting magical artifacts along the way.

Nintendo and Shankar remain tight-lipped about the series, but the producer posted a cryptic note on Instagram stating, “I can confirm that I’m working with an iconic Japanese gaming company to adapt one of their iconic video game series into a series.”

He captioned the post, “The success of Castlevania created this opportunity.” Shankar served as producer and executive producer on Netflix’s Castlevania, an animated show about a vampire hunter fighting a Dracula-controlled supernatural army. The show is based on the 1989 Japanese video game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, from Konami.
