Capcom’s 2019 is off to a huge start thus far, between the re-release of Onimushafor various platforms; the stunning remake of Resident Evil 2; and the wild action sequel Devil May Cry 5, which came out right before this past weekend. But let’s not forget that Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisenis playing its part as well. The game is making its way to Nintendo Switch sometime this summer; and now there’s a new anime series that will celebrate its legacy in style.
Netflix has announced that it is adapting “an original anime series” based on the hit series, which is currently in production over at Sublimination. The director of that company, Atsushi Koishikawa, is overseeing the project, and the team is “excited to bring our unique cel-shaded animation that carries hand-drawn textures to anime fans around the world,” the press announcement reads.
Fans can expect the Dragon’s Dogmaanime series to be loyal to the franchise. Netflix’s synopsis reads: “Based on a world-famous action RPG set in an open world, Dragon’s Dogma from CAPCOM will be brought to life as a Netflix original anime series. The story follows a man’s journey seeking revenge on a dragon who stole his heart. On his way, the man is brought back to life as an Arisen. An action adventure about a man challenged by demons who represent the seven deadly sins of humans.”
That said, we probably won’t see it for some time, as the series is currently in pre-production. But we could see a preview around E3 time, with a potential debut around mid to late 2020.
And if it’s anything like the awesome Castlevania animated series that’s been running, we’re in for a real treat.
Dragon’s Dogma should be available for Switch sometime over the next few months, so that’ll fulfill our fix in the meantime. It’s also available right now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
