Originally released on the PS3 and 360 back in 2012, Dragon’s Dogma has a had a little bit of a resurgence thanks to a solid current-gen remaster, and the upcoming Switch release later this year. But that’s not the only new slice of life the game is getting: it’s also being turned into an anime, courtesy of Netflix.

The streaming service has announced that it has paired with production house Sublimation, which will make an animated series based on Dragon’s Dogma. There’s no release date as of yet.

In the same release, Netflix announced that their Ghost in the Shell anime, which was being produced by Production I.G, will be released sometime in 2020. Another production studio, bones, will also make an original animated series based on Mark Millar’s Supercrooks comic, a story about an all-American supervillain who travels to Spain.

“We’re excited to bring our unique cel shaded animation that carries hand-drawn textures to anime fans around the world,” Sublimation’s Atsushi Koishikawa said in the release.

These production houses and Netflix will jointly create original anime series including the animated series Altered Carbon: Resleeved from Anima. Altered Carbon is based on Netflix’s original live action science fiction series whose first season launched in February of 2018 and for which a second season is currently in production. Netflix will also partner with Sublimation on Dragon’s Dogma, an original anime series based on the critically acclaimed video game of the same name. Lastly, Netflix will jointly create SPRIGGAN, based on a manga series, with David Production.


  • You can’t really go too wrong with it unless they go for the current anime trend of a modern day person getting transported to another world. I will be very disappointed if it doesn’t have the following though:
    – Copious Throwblast usage
    – Tis weak to fire arisen!
    – Pawns picking up and breaking everything in sight
    – Climbing all over things
    – Tis weak to fire arisen!
    – Godsbaning
    – Scarfing down mushrooms.
    – Tis weak to fire arisen!

  • The Spriggan anime film was a pretty solid action anime so a new series is definitely welcome. But all I want is a Dragon Dogma sequel, couldn’t care less about a series personally.

      • Apparently Itsuno had a choice, Dragon’s Dogma 2 or Devil May Cry 5. He chose wisely. There’s still hope though because he still really wants to make Dragon’s Dogma 2 as well.
