Netflix brings Splinter Cell, Cuphead news and more!


Today is one of the bigger days with Netflix’s Geeked Week, as it revealed some goods from its upcoming video game themed shows. And boy, are they delivering.

First up, it debuted a clip from the long-awaited show based on the hit shoot-em-up Cuphead, where it showcased an actor filling in for the deadly King Dice – and it’s none other than Wayne Brady! You can watch it below.

The show doesn’t currently have a release date, but is “Coming Soon,” which likely means sometime this year.

More details were also revealed about the upcoming Resident Evil: New Raccoon City, including new cast members. Lance Reddick, Ella Balinska and Tamara Smart will join an all star cast, as pictured below!

As expected, a new teaser for the second season of The Witcher debuted, showing off what we can see from fan favorite Ciri. It’s set to debut sometime later this year. Of course, Henry Cavill will also return. Duh.

Remember a while back when Castlevania producer Adi Shankar was given the green light to work on a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon animated series? Well, it’s happening with Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix, and you can scope it out below. We wonder if they’re going to get Michael Biehn…

Speaking of Castlevania, the spin-off for the popular Castlevania series has been revealed, following its concluding fourth season! It will feature Richter Belmont and Maria Renard, and this time it will take place during the French Revolution! No word on a title yet, but here’s hoping it’s Rondo of Blood or something along those lines.

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell is finally getting something new, with Derek Kolstad of John Wick fame writing the series. No word yet if they have Michael Ironside to voice the iconic character, but he’s definitely on the older side, so we can see it.

A first clip for the League of Legends animated series, Arcane, also made its debut! You can check it out below and expect the series to pack a wallop this fall.

More Witcher news? You bet. Netflix will team up with CD Projekt Red to host the WitcherCon, taking place on July 9th. You can probably expect more clips and news about the second season when this drops!

Also, um, here’s the official description for The Witcher’s second season:

“Convinced Yennefer’s life was lost at the Battle of Sodden, Geralt of Rivia brings Princess Cirilla to the safest place he knows, his childhood home of Kaer Morhen. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans and demons strive for supremacy outside its walls, he must protect the girl from something far more dangerous: the mysterious power she possesses inside.”

Look for more Netflix news as it becomes available. Oh, and watch The Mitchells vs. the Machines, will ya? It’s awesome.
