Dragon's Dogma Anime Announced for Netflix

Dragon's Dogma 2 is still nowhere to be found, but the series is finding other ways to grow.

Dragon's Dogma is being revived in seemingly every form save a proper sequel. The latest bit of Dragon's Dogma news is that a new show is coming Netflix, joining Castlevania and the forthcoming adaptation of The Witcher on the service.

We know very little about the show right now. Netflix provided the extremely brief overview you see below.

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.

The new show is being produced by Sublimation, a Japanese production company mainly known for producing the CG in anime including Evangelion 3.0 and Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096. In a statement, representative director Atsushi Koishikawa talked about the studio's excitement over working on its own title.

"We have oftentimes worked with partner studios to create partial CGI portions within a given title, so we feel very fortunate to work with Netflix through this production line deal. We're excited to bring our unique cel shaded animation that carries hand-drawn textures to anime fans around the world," Koishikawa said.

Dragon's Dogma was originally released as a hack-and-slash RPG in 2012. With its large monsters and distinct aesthetic, it eventually garnered a small but loyal audience. An expanded version called Dark Arisen was subsequently released the following year, then remastered for PS4 and Xbox One in 2017. A Switch of Dragon's Dogma release is due next month.

There's been no word of a sequel, but it's heartening to see Capcom keeping hope alive through various media channels. If Dragon's Dogma garners enough of an audience on Netflix or on Switch, then Dragon's Dogma 2 seems inevitable. But for now, we wait. We'll let you know when we have more info on Dragon's Dogma on Netflix.
