First artwork for Castlevania's third season spotted

Season 3 is coming

While we don't have a set date yet, all signs point to Castlevania's third season hitting Netflix sooner rather than later. A number of teases have come in, and now we have our best hint yet.

The official Castlevania Twitter account has updated its banner with the image you see above, which is no doubt for the third season of the animated series. We see Carmilla, who should be a familiar character to those who watched season 2, but there are other characters present as well. They all appear to be newcomers, which likely means they'll have their debut in the upcoming season.

First screens and footage from Solomon Program surface

Our first look at the game in action

Solomon Program, a monster battling game from Konami, was revealed for Switch less than a week ago. So far we've only had a few details from a magazine feature, but now we have screens and gameplay footage. This content comes way of a demo that was included in the latest issue of MiraCoro Comic Version 2.0. Check out the various gameplay clips below!

Konami's Solomon Program confirmed for Switch release

Locked down for Switch

A few days back, we covered Solomon Program, a new monster battling game in the works at Konami. The game looked to be heading to Switch, but wasn't 100% confirmed. Now a few days later, we have official confirmation that the game is indeed seeing release on Switch.

To go along with the confirmation of release on Switch, we also have some character art. Up above is Beta, the protagonist, and below is Gishiki, a mysterious monster that Beta meets up with.

Konami may be bringing the monster battle game 'Solomon Program' to Switch

Ready for some more digital monsters?

The latest issue of CoroCoro Comic reveals a new title from Konami called Solomon Program. While the game's platform isn't mentioned, one of the screens includes an A and B button. Those don't appear on Sony platforms, and it's extremely unlikely Konami would be revealing an Xbox One title in CoroCoro, so Switch seems like the likely target.

Solomon Program has players control and battle monsters via programs, and monster designs are similar to what you might expect from series' like Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pokemon, and Digimon. Battles appear to be in a strategy RPG style. Finally, a demo code for the game will be included in MiraCoro Comic Ver. 2, which is due out Jan. 17th, 2020.

Third season of Netflix's Castlevania series teased for 2020

Count on it

Late last year, the Nordic branch of Netflix said that Castlevania's third season was set to launch on Dec. 1st, 2019. Turns out that was a mistake, and the director of the adaptation came forward to say his team was currently working on the last episode of the new season. While a 2020 release was expected, we officially have our first news on that front.

Powerhouse Animation Studios, the company behind the series, has taken to Twitter to mention what they're excited for in the new year. They decided to spell out '2020' using emoji, but the important thing to note is that every emoji used is a vampire. There's no doubt this is a tease for Castlevania's third season, and hopefully we get more concrete info on the release date soon!
