Dota 2 Update: Valve’s new Dota 2 anime series to air on Netflix on March 25: Valve announced the arrival of an anime series based on the Dota universe. The anime series will air on Netflix on March 25. Titled DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, the series will get released just a day ahead of Dota teams participation at the ONE Esports Singapore Major.

“We’re excited to announce a brand-new anime series exploring the Dota universe like never before,” Valve said in a Tweet. “As fellow fans of Dota and its passionate global community, we look forward to sharing this new adventure with you when it premieres on Netflix March 25.”

 

What can be gauged out of the trailer is that the series will revolve around Davion, the Dragon Knight as he is in line to become one of the key players in “events larger than he could have ever imagined.”

In the teaser, one can hear echoes in the far end as SirActionSlacks yells things about the potential lore and other things that we will be able to see in the series. Being chased by a dragon, Davion is the Dragon Knight and is set on an adventure. This is one of the major projects taken up by Valve to promote DOTA at a very global level, outside the esports world– catching eyes of both– anime enthusiasts and DOTA 2 players.

 

More details about the series are going to be shared in the coming weeks. In the Dota 2 client, Valve has given a hint surrounding when those new details can emerge or be made available.

Following the announcement, a new trailer for Dragon’s Blood is expected to drop on February 19, and the main trailer, which will hint more at what the anime series could like, will come out on March 1 ahead of the series premiere on March 25.

The series is being animated by Studio MIR, a South Korean animation studio that has previously worked on other projects like The Legend of Korra, Young Justice: Outsiders, and another Netflix original, Voltron: Legendary Defender.
