Valve & Netflix teamed up for a Dota anime series

By - | Views: 13,904

If, like me, you're a bit of an Anime fan you might want to keep an eye on Netflix as DOTA: Dragon's Blood has been announced for release in March. Yeah, I know, this is not your usual gaming news but it's gaming related and heck I'm excited about it.

The story will be centred around a Dragon Knight, with the synopsis being short and sweet "The sweeping 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."

From the press release:

“Fans will love how we’ve imagined the DOTA 2 universe and woven together an epic, emotional, and adult-oriented story about some of their favorite characters,” said showrunner and executive producer Ashley Edward Miller. “The cinematic animation, acting and music are simply next level and I’m grateful to Valve for supporting our creative ambitions.”

It releases on March 25, exclusively on Netflix.

You can play Dota 2 free on Steam.

Quoting: ArtenYes, it is him. Dragon knight . I expect origin story how he get dragon blood with ability transform into Elder Dragon Form.

He is one from theoretically usable hero for anime, with cool ability.

Basically this. Usable heroes here are Luna, Mirana, Sven, Anti-Mage... They aren't as many, they aren't too aliens when put against humans (because well, humans exist in-universe, so they are a pretty staple hook to get viewers on), but DK at least as quite the bit of room for his story, and the recognition.

Weirdest bit for me will be this:

DK in game is voiced by Tony Todd (Candyman from the movies and Vortigaunts in HL2 as VA), but he won't be the VA of Davion, he'll be the VA of Slyrak (Slyrak is the Dragon that is hunted by Davion and willingly die to Davion's blade to give him his dragon powers. But it's hinted that we can't know if it's Davion that got the powers, or that Slyrak took over Davion).

Is that a hint for massive headcannon or is that a casting choice? I don't know, but I know they did their homework on the lore, so there is that to look toward to.
