Ah, yes, it’s finally here. If you’ve ever wanted to relive the game that got you excited to come back home from school, then today is your lucky day, my friend. Remember Netflix’s announcement about the adaptation for 2012’s Dragon’s Dogma game? Well, it’s not finished yet––but it is in the works!
There haven’t been many games to get adaptations, especially coming from Netflix, but this one proves to be one of the most exciting and has the most potential. If you’ve ever wondered what the hack-and-slash game would look like as an adaptation on television, then the streaming giant has done you well with a new, short trailer to hype you up even more.
As you may now know, the story revolves around Ethan, an upcoming warrior who unfortunately loses everything to a fire-breathing dragon. However, as he seeks help from a Pawn (the term from the original game for player-assisting characters), his vengeance boils to the brim and seeks it on the dragon. Along the journey for revenge, he discovers in himself a demonic power to which the description states: “For when you fight a monster… you just may become one too,” the video description on YouTube teases––a very exciting turn of events.
Originally, Dragon’s Dogma was released for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles back in 2012––a mere 8 years ago. However, the more updated version in Dark Arisen has been released for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and both the consoles aforementioned. Similarly to Knights of Sidonia (another Netflix original), the TV show will be flaunting a CG-based anime look.
Together with Netflix is Sublimation, a company that contributed their skills in CG animation for Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, Psycho-Pass, Tokyo Ghoul, and a handful more of movies and TV shows. With that, the series will be premiering on the 17th of September, 2020.
