Netflix is releasing the “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” animated series after the successful run of Castlevania animated series.
Live-action adaptions of video games have mostly performed poorly, whereas the animated series based on video games. Keeping this fact in view, Netflix is coming up with various animated series based on video games. Netflix has had a great experience with animated video game adaptions like Castlevania and Dragon’s Dogma, and it had “Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness” planned for this year.
The announcements related to the release of such projects are made in advance. However, Netflix and Valve have socked us with the surprise they had been cooking as last night they revealed that the “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood” animated series would be releasing next month. This animated series will be releasing on 25 March, and it is based on eight episodes. This animated series is based on “MOBA DOTA 2”, one of the most popular games worldwide.
The streaming giant published this amazing news last night, and it provided us a great insight into the storyline of the upcoming animated series:
The upcoming fantasy series tells the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world. 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.
On the other hand, DOTA 2 announced this news through the microblogging service:

The South Korean animation studio “Studio Mir Co.” is working on this series’s animation and graphics. They have produced some of the most amazing projects like the Legend of Korra, Voltron: Legendary Defender, and the recently announced The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
