The Dragon’s Dogma Netflix anime launches 17th September 2020.
“Only the Arisen can face the Dragon and defeat the apocalypse,” said Netflix in a Twitter tease.
The Dragon’s Dogma anime was announced back in March 2019. It’s based on Capcom’s well-received action role-playing game that first launched in 2012. A Switch version came out last year.
Netflix is working with CG company Sublimation on the anime. Here’s the official blurb:
“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.”
Now seems like a good time to mention there was talk of a Dragon’s Dogma sequel following the release of Devil May Cry 5 in 2019. Dragon’s Dogma and Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno has expressed interest, telling Eurogamer back in September 2018: “If someone would let me, it’s what I’d want to do. I already know what the story would be. It’s just about convincing people to let me make it. So please bombard Capcom Europe!”
