Netflix is preparing for the global launch of another anime series dependent on Valve’s multiplayer online fight field game Dota 2. The 8-episode series is entitled Dota: Dragon’s Blood and is planned to become available for streaming worldwide on March 25th.
It will recount the narrative of a Dragon Knight – durable melee strength heroes outfitted with swords and shields in the game – named Davion who’s “devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world.” In his travels, Davion encounters an old eldwurm (a race of dragons) and the honorable Princess Mirana. Similarly as with epic stories like this, Davion gets associated with events far bigger than he anticipated.
Dragon’s Blood was created under the leadership of showrunner Ashley Edward Miller, a screenwriter and maker who recently dealt with X-Men: First Class, Thor and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It was drawn and animated by Studio MIR, known for The Legend of Korra and Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender, which highlights ’80s style artwork like the original Voltron.
Valve released Dota 2 out of 2013 as a sequel of Defense of the Ancients, a MOBA mod for Blizzard’s Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos. It hasn’t been pretty much as well known as it used to be as of late, however Valve is wanting to keep players interested by turning out hero updates over time as opposed to packaging them across the board enormous release.
