Netflix originally announced the Dragon Dogma’s anime series last year and have now confirmed a date for later this year.
The series is expected to land on September 17 and is based upon the 2012 role-playing game from Capcom. Little information has been provided as of yet, however the Netflix page for the anime is up and provides a description of the show that states: “Ethan sets out to vanquish the Dragon that took his heart, but with every demon he battles, the more he loses humanity.”
The Dragon Dogma’s Twitter page has also provided alternate description which reads: “A new Arisen is born! Follow Ethan, along with his pawn Hannah, in his journey to reclaim his heart.”
Alongside the additional description, several stills from the series have also been shared. You can check them out in the tweet below:
