Netflix has found strong success in the last few years by accepting both anime and Western animated series crafted in the reliable anime design. The formula has even worked for video game adjustments, which are infamously hit or miss. In 2017, fans were delighted by the Adi Shankar and Warren Ellis adjustment of the classic game series Castlevania. The favorable action basically made sure that more of the like would follow. Well, here we are.

With Castlevania heading into its 4th and last season, you might be wondering if Netflix has something else up its sleeve– another anime-style series from a widely known video game franchise, possibly? We currently understand there won’t be any Legend of Zelda in Netflix’s future, however it turns out the streamer was keeping another video game adjustment a trick– previously.

MOBA (Multiplayer Online Fight Arena) video games are tremendously popular right now, particularly in the lucrative world of esports. Games like Smite, Heroes of the Storm, and League of Legends control the online gaming landscape. But the begetter of the genre in its contemporary kind is Valve’s Defense of the Ancients a.k.a. DOTA and its popular follow up DOTA 2. The series has actually been a smash success for the business, so much so that Netflix quietly slipped an animated show based upon the video game series into development and handled to keep the entire thing a state secret.
