Castlevania's New Netflix Season Has a Devil May Cry Cameo

Castlevania's New Netflix Season Has a Devil May Cry Cameo

The Devil Hunter's sword has a very brief cameo.

Castlevania's third season premiered on Netflix just yesterday, but some eagle-eyed viewers have already spotted tiny details. It turns out Capcom's Devil May Cry series has a very small cameo in the new Castlevania series, in the form of a weapon.

This weapon would be 'Rebellion,' the sword that belongs to Devil May Cry series protagonist Dante. You can see Rebellion in the dark background of the scene in Castlevania just below. You'd really have to have 20/20 to notice the sword back there in the dark.

Rebellion is the weapon that Dante wields throughout most of the Devil May Cry series. In the 2019's Devil May Cry 5, Dante switches between using both Rebellion and the Devil Sword Sparda, although there's no cameo for the latter weapon in Castlevania's new season.

This small cameo is particularly noteworthy because a Devil May Cry animated series from Netflix is also in the works. The Castlevania series appears to have been something of a hit for Netflix, and the company has tapped Adi Shankar, who produced the first two seasons of Castlevania, to head up the Devil May Cry series.

The Devil May Cry series from Shankar and Netflix was announced what feels like forever ago back in November 2018. After this new cameo, could more information about the Devil May Cry animated series be coming in the near future?
