With the success of their animated adaptation of Castlevania, Netflix is shifting into high gear with series based on Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, and now another Capcom property in Dragon’s Dogma.
Though details aren’t forthcoming at the moment, in the announcement, Netflix states that Sublimation will handle the production.
According to Sublimation representative director Atsushi Koishikawa, the company “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.”
Dragon’s Dogma is an action role-playing hack and slash video game developed and published by Capcom for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012. Set in the high fantasy world of Gransys, the player takes on the role a human protagonist dubbed the Arisen on a quest to defeat the Dragon, a being said to herald the world’s end. A free-to-play MMO titled Dragon’s Dogma Online was released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2015.
