You remember Bloodrayne, right? Red hair, a vampire before vampires became Hot Topic sales clerks, existent in the third dimension? Well, the first trailer of Bloodrayne: Betrayal is here to tell you that everything you know is a lie. Now the franchise has re-emerged from its coffin and, well, it looks a lot like Castlevania.

But that’s not a bad thing! WayForward’s once again cut some kind of deal with the 2D devil, resulting in some of the most gorgeous sprite-based animation we’ve seen in quite a while. Oh, and blood. If you’re squeamish, let us first remind you that – oh god – that stuff’s inside of you, oozing and pulsating everywhere. Terrifying, huh? Now then, where were we? Oh yes, the trailer. Full thing’s after the break, courtesy of Siliconera.
