In the press announcement published on the official site, Netflix has revealed the anime adaptation of Dragon’s Dogma. The series will be produced by Sublimation Inc.
“Sublimation team has long dreamt of working on our 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.”
Dragon’s Dogma is an epic fantasy open-world action-RPG developed and published by Capcom for PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360 in 2012. The extended version, titled Dark Arisen, was later ported to the Microsoft Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The plot of the series seems to coincide with the plot of the game: 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.
