DOTA 2, Netflix producing original anime series based on the popular game
Set for release in March, the series follows the story of the character Dragon Knight, as he sets off on an adventure far bigger than he ever imagined.
DOTA 2 fans rejoice! After eight years of existence (12 really, if you count the original game mod), the game is finally getting its very own animated series.
Produced in partnership with Netflix, the show will span eight episodes and is set for release on Mar 25.
Titled DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, the series will follow the adventures of one of the game’s most famous characters, Davion, a Dragon Knight.
According to a Netflix press release, the upcoming fantasy series tells the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world.
Following encounters with a powerful, ancient Eldwurm as well as the noble Princess Mirana on a secret mission of her own, Davion becomes embroiled in events much larger than he could have ever imagined.”
In addition, the show’s animation lies in great hands too as it’ll be animated by South-Korean animation house Studio MIR, the studio responsible for all-time greats including The Legend of Korra.
A teaser trailer for the anime was released on Wednesday (Feb 17), while the main trailer is slated to drop in March.
At the very least, the show won’t be about how Davion dies before getting flamed by his teammates until he quits… or so we hope.
