Netflix has dropped another animated adaptation of a popular video game franchise, this time turning its gaze to Capcom’s fantasy hit Dragon’s Dogma.
A relatively recent creation, the first game in the series was released back in 2012 and followed shortly after by its sequel, subtitled Dark Arisen.
Following the success of Castlevania, Netflix has commissioned a seven-part animated series based on the world of Dragon’s Dogma, wherein a warrior sets out to find the dragon that destroyed his home.

Dragon’s Dogma review: Is the anime good?
Reviews for Dragon’s Dogma have been trickling in over the past week and seem generally positive, but the show has been the subject of some minor criticism.
IGN gave the series a solid 7/10 score, praising the action and visuals but lamenting the unfocused scripts, which fail to make the most of an already brief runtime.
AV Club echoed that sentiment, calling the series “fun, if forgettable” and awarded it a C+, agreeing that the writing could be sharper.
What is Dragon’s Dogma about?
Based on the video game of the same name, Dragon’s Dogma tells the story of a man seeking revenge on the dragon who destroyed his home.
