‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’ Teaser: New Anime Based Upon the Popular Video Game Franchise is Pertaining To Netflix

Netflix has been trying to corner the anime market for many years, and its newest attempt has all the potential to be the banner’s next hit. Initially, it comes from the studio that animated The Legend of Korra and Netflix’s own Voltron: Legendary Protector, and second, it’s based on a popular computer game franchise that is ripe for an anime adaptation. Netflix revealed the upcoming release of DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, based upon Valve’s Defense of the Ancients computer game franchise, in a short teaser revealing a March best date. See the DOTA: Dragon’s Blood teaser below.

Netflix revealed that it will be providing the anime treatment to the popular DOTA 2 video game franchise with DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, a brand new anime series that will launch internationally on March 25, 2021. Per Netflix’s news release, the 8-episode anime series “informs the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight committed to wiping the scourge from the face of the world. Following encounters with a powerful, ancient eldwurm along with the worthy Princess Mirana on a secret objective of her own, Davion becomes embroiled in occasions much larger than he might have ever pictured.”

The first teaser, seen above, doesn’t give us far more information– merely showing Davion showing up to present himself as the Dragon Knight– but it does offer us a peek of the sensational animation by Studio MIR, the studio behind The Legend of Korra and Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender. But apart from the anime art design, you can only loosely define DOTA: Dragon’s Blood as an anime– like a number of Netflix’s other releases under that medium, it comes from a mostly Western production group, with Ashley Edward Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor, Black Sails) serving as series showrunner and executive manufacturer.

” Fans will enjoy how we’ve envisioned the DOTA 2 universe and woven together an epic, psychological, and adult-oriented story about some of their preferred characters,” Miller said in a declaration accompanying the teaser release. “The cinematic animation, acting and music are just next level and I’m grateful to Valve for supporting our imaginative ambitions.”
