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.
