Dota 2 Getting Netflix Anime Series Focused on Dragon Knight
It has finally happened. The game that defined the MOBA genre is getting its very own animated Netflix series. The announcement was made earlier today, out of the blue, with no leaks or rumors leading up to it.
A joint effort by Netflix and Valve, Dota: Dragon’s Blood will follow the adventures of Davion, the Dragon Knight and Mirana, the Princess of the Moon, with other characters from the game likely to make appearances.
The announcements made through official social media channels don’t let on much about the series, though there is another teaser slated for release in two days, on February 9, with a full trailer scheduled for a March 2 showing. Dota 2 players will find a separate section within the game dedicated to the series, with the following synopsis appearing at the top of the screen:
Dragon Knight and Mirana face demons and gods with unexpected allies in this all-new anime series premiering on Netflix. Discover heroes both old and new as Dota 2 comes to life like never before.
Those with a keen eye will recognize Dragon Knight, Mirana, and the mage Invoker in the dimmed images below.
The series premiere is penned in for March 25, 2021.
Update: Teaser released.
