Netflix is teaming up with Sublimation Inc. to create the series. Below is a brief overview of the show’s plotline:

“Based on a world-famous action RPG set in an open world, Dragon’s Dogma from CAPCOM will be brought to life as a Netflix original anime series. The story follows a man’s journey seeking revenge on a dragon who stole his heart. On his way, the man is brought back to life as an ‘Arisen’.An action adventure about a man challenged by demons who represent the seven deadly sins of humans.”

“Sublimation team has long dreamt of working on our own title,” said Atsushi Koishikawa, Representative Director at Sublimation. “We have oftentimes worked with partner studios to create partial CGI portions within a given title, so we feel very fortunate to work with Netflix through this production line deal. We’re excited to bring our unique cel-shaded animation that carries hand-drawn textures to anime fans around the world.”

Further details, such as a release window, were not shared. If we were to guess, the series may not launch until 2020.

Other anime series announced include Altered Carbon: Resleeved, SPRIGGAN, Ghost in the Shell: SAC _2045, Vampire in the Garden, and Super Crooks.

A Nintendo Switch port of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will launch on April 23rd, 2019.
