Netflix is about to release an anime series called Dota Dota: Dragon’s BloodAnd, to prep those short of Dota’s lore, I’ve put together SirActionSlacks, Sheever, and ODPixel wheels to show who the Hells old are and why they need so much defense.
Dota’s World, included above, is a six-minute summary of game setting and demo, starting with the very beginning of the universe, where a primitive mind got into battle with itself – not an uncommon place to start a tradition of animation, really.
Fast forward for a very long time – after stars and planets form and all that – and you’ll reach the start of an upcoming Netflix series, which is “not just about this cosmic hobby.”
“In Dragon’s Blood, we follow an ordinary man who works his way through this amazing world,” says ODPixel. “As you can see, we are Dota fans, we have only seen the end of this story: Battle of the Ancients, the Final Battle, that’s what we’ve been playing in Dota for over a decade, confined to one small battlefield and the heroes who just happen to be there. But for every one of these.” Hundreds of heroes have a unique story, and lives of their own, which we could only have imagined in two background sentences.
Specifically, the series revolves around Davion, also known as Dragon Knight, the gaming hero voiced by prolific actor Yuri Lowenthal.
Dota: Dragon’s Blood will be available for streaming on Netflix on March 25th. For more information on the series, to you Everything else we know about her.
