Update from July 15, 2019: For a long time it was quiet about the anime implementation of Dragon's Dogma, but now the dragon has awakened! The official Twitter account of Netflix has published an atmospheric poster and teasers the story: Only the awakened can defeat the dragon and thus prevent the demise of the world. On September 17th, the anime will be released exclusively on Netflix:

In addition to this tweet, there are also first pictures from the series, which will rely on a mixture of 2D drawings and 3D models. The pictures show the dragon, protagonist Ethan, his vassal Hannah and Olivia, who is probably Ethan's girlfriend from his village. So the series sounds like a direct implementation of the role play by Capcom. However, an official description also states that Ethan will face monsters that embody the seven deadly sins and lose part of his humanity after each victory. This aspect is an innovation of the series.

Original from March 13, 2019: The role-playing game Dragon's Dogma by Devil May Cry creator Hideaki Itsuno has a loyal community of fans with its multi-layered combat system, extensive character editor and a dark fantasy world. Those and others can now be happy: Because it was announced that the world of Dragon's Dogma is coming to Netflix as anime.

In addition to some other anime productions from Netflix, which can only be described as a concentrated anime offensive, Dragon's Dogma is the second such implementation, which is based on a video game. Previously, Netflix released the action-packed adaptation of Castlevania (editor Matthias definitely recommends to you.)

Rather unknown studio is responsible for the anime to Dragon's Dogma

As a studio responsible for the adaptation of Dragon's Dogma is Sublimation Inc, which has specialized in 3D CGI animation and is now tackling its first own projects. The summary of the story of the Dragon's Dogma series officially states:

"The story follows the journey of a man who wants to take revenge on a dragon who has torn his heart out. On his way, the man is brought back to life as the 'awakened one'. An action adventure that revolves around a man who has to face demons that represent the seven deadly sins of humanity. "

The story definitely sounds like the developers aren't going too far from the source material. Because even in the game our main character loses his heart in the fight against a powerful dragon.

"The Sublimation team has long dreamed of working on their own title."says Atsushi Koishikawa, the studio's deputy director. "We have often worked with partner studios to create smaller CGI aspects of titles, so we feel very fortunate to be working with Netflix on this production. We look forward to delivering our unique Cel shading animation with hand-drawn textures Bringing anime fans to the world. "

Is there a Dragon's Dogma 2 on the way?

Mystical monsters like Cyclops, Chimeras and Hydras are among the highlights in Dragon's Dogma and offer challenging battles.

The original Dragon's Dogma was released in 2012 for PS3 and Xbox 360, but received an expanded version in the form of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (buy now), which brought more game content and improved graphics. This version will also be released for the Nintendo Switch in April.

Rumors also say that Hideaki Itsuno – the creator of Devil May Cry and Dragon's Dogma – plans to tackle Dragon's Dogma 2 as the next project: A while ago, the game maker had the choice between developing Devil May Cry 5 and continuing the dragon role-playing game , receiving the green light for both. At the time, he decided on the recently released Devil May Cry 5. So now there is nothing standing in his way to return to the dark fantasy world of Dragon's Dogma.
