Vampire Survivors Is Getting An Animated TV Show

The BAFTA winning Vampire Survivors will be getting its own animated tv show, developer Poncle announced today.

Poncle will work with Story Kitchen, a studio which is led by Dimitri Johnson, co-producer on the Sonic The Hedgehog films, John Wick writer/creator Derek Kolstad and Mike Goldberg, former APA partner.

Poncle will also work with Robot Teddy as a consultant for the project. According to a report from Deadline, the show is now on the hunt for a writer, to get things going.

“The most important thing in Vampire Survivors is the story, so it’s a dream come true to see what started as a little indie game I made on my weekends come to life as an animated TV show!” says Poncle founder Luca Galante in a press release.

Galante added “It’s also great to be partnering up with such experienced and talented people to make the show. I do wonder if they’ve realized that there isn’t a single vampire in Vampire Survivors, though.”

Robot Teddy’s business director Alessandro Bovenzi also spoke on the announcement, saying “Collaborating with Poncle on Vampire Survivors has been a coffin-load of fun.

And now with Story Kitchen on board, we’re thrilled to be adding even more depth to the world of the undead.”

Vampire Survivors has yet to make a debut on PlayStation devices, but it seems clear that Vampire Survivors is benefitting from the industry’s new landscape which PlayStation recently helped accelerate.

First built over time with previous animated show success stories like Castlevania and Arcane, and now the success of HBO’s The Last Of Us created even more excitement around the prospect of a well-executed adaptation.

Vampire Survivors is an excellent title with plenty of promise for projects like this, and the speed at which it’s already beginning to expand shows there’s a greater urgency for more video game adaptations to the big and small screen.
