Towards the end of last year, it was revealed that a Devil May Cry animation is coming to Netflix. It seems that Capcom is perfectly happy for more adaptations of their games, as now Netflix has also announced that a Dragon's Dogma anime is also in the works. It's part of their push to have more animated content on the streaming service. Originally released in 2012, the role-playing game followed the Arisen on a quest to take down the dragon that literally stole their heart, and the anime will follow similar lines albeit with the addition that the protagonist will be challenged by demons who represent the seven deadly sins.
The animation will be made by Sublimation Inc. whose recent work includes animated movie Walking Meat. They are not completely new to video game-based animation either, helping lead studio Production I.G. with CGI work on Mass Effect: Paragon Lost. Sublimation's Representative Director (the "most" senior executive of a Japanese company) Atsushi Koishikawa was naturally happy about the deal, as he had this to say:
Sublimation's team has long dreamt of working on our own title. 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.No word on when we can expect to see Dragon's Dogma on Netflix, but until we know more, surely we can all agree that "Into Free" has to be the main theme?
