Netflix continue their run of announcing an anime series based on a video game every other day, or at last that is how it seems, with the reveal of DOTA: Dragon’s Blood which will premier on March 25th.
The series will consist of eight episodes each lasting around thirty minutes. “The upcoming fantasy series tells the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world,” say Netflix. “Following encounters with a powerful, ancient eldwurm as well as the noble Princess Mirana on a secret mission of her own, Davion becomes embroiled in events much larger than he could have ever imagined.”
Valve have been involved with the production with Ashley Edward Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor and Black Sails) as showrunner and executive producer, Studio MIR (The Legend of Korra and Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender) on animation duties and with Ryu Ki Hyun serving as Co-Executive Producer.
