Konami has sold the animation rights to its hit franchise Catlevania to Project 51 Productions reports Game Daily. With an extensive following and more than 20 million copies sold, Project 51 principal Kevin Kolde and his representative, Panacea Entertainment’s Eric Gardner, hope to capitalize on its already overwhelming success with direct to DVD stories, TV series, and ultimately a feature film. The pair will co-executive produce each of the productions. “There is no shortage of story lines,” Gardner said. “The mythology created spans about 600 years in the Belmont family, from the 1400s to the present. So there are myriad story lines from which to draw, and we expect to tap that rich vein.”
