‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’ Trailer: Netflix’s Video Game Anime is Blood-Soaked Swords-and-Sorcery

The popular DOTA 2 video-game franchise by Valve is becoming an anime series. Netflix’s DOTA: Dragon’s Blood adapts the beloved video game that started off as an unlikely Warcraft III mod, before Valve would trademark the name and launch the wildly successful DOTA 2. Watch the DOTA: Dragon’s Blood trailer below.

The eight-episode DOTA: Dragon’s Blood “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.” It’s all very swords-and-sorcery high fantasy, which we can see in spades in the official trailer, as well as the blood and gore which earns DOTA: Dragon’s Blood its “adult anime” designation. There’s also plenty of dragon blood, to live up to the show’s title.
