Dragon's Dogma anime coming to NetflixPlatforms: All | Sony PlayStation 4 | Microsoft Xbox One | PC | Microsoft Xbox 360 | Nintendo Switch | Sony PlayStation 3
Netflix has announced that it is working on an anime adaptation of Capcom's Dragon's Dogma video game.
The streaming service will partner with Sublimation on the original anime series based on the critically acclaimed role-playing game.
The announcement was light on detail, with no time-frame given, or information on whether the original Dragon's Dogma developers are involved.
Dragon's Dogma was released in 2012 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to a positive critical and commercial reception. The game was a passion project for director, Hideaki Itsuno, who started work on the game back in 2000. Itsuno is known for his work on the Devil May Cry series, culminating in the recently released Devil May Cry 5.
Fans of Dragon's Dogma have been asking for a sequel for years, and recently Itsuno has expressed more than a passing interest to return to the IP. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, an expanded version of the original game was released in 2013; it was then ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017. Dark Arisen will Mage its way to the Nintendo Switch on April 23rd 2019, bringing Dragon's Dogma to a handheld for the first time.
The Netflix deal will surely be great news to fans of the game, and the best indication yet that the Dragon's Dogma name hasn't been forgotten.
