Netflix to Release Dragon's Dogma Anime
Reviving the cult classic Dragon's Dogma in anime fashion, Netlfix might drop this hot new series sooner than fans thought. First released in 2012, Dragon's Dogma initially hit the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. Now, it's coming back, and its cult following can't wait.
Netflix has hit a hot streak with its more recent anime. From Castlevania to Cyberpunk 77, video games are receiving the royal Netflix adaptation treatment with a more unique twist. Netflix has adapted anime for live-action before with Death Note and has the classic Cowboy Bebop on the horizon, but for now, they struck their sweet spot by sticking to strictly animated originals.
A few images from Dragon's Dogma have surfaced on Netlfix's social media in tow with a debut date for September 17, 2020, and prides itself on being both "exciting" and "dark."
In a brief synopsis of the show, it's teased that “Ethan sets out to vanquish the Dragon that took his heart, but with every demon he battles, the more he loses his humanity.” Capcom has yet to respond to fans who continually ask for a game sequel, but the anime will have to hold over those who hold onto hope for a second game. There was consideration for Dragon's Dogma 2, which was then replaced with Devil May Cry 5.
Though the choice of game for an anime adaptation may surprise fans of Dragon's Dogma, and despite the ongoing desire for more gaming content, Netflix can once again flaunt their ability to turn a beloved video game into a beloved anime.
