Netflix’s Dragon’s Dogma anime adaptation will be coming to the streaming service on September 17. Netflix also revealed the first poster for the anime adaptation which serves as a first look at the art style for the series.Netflix announced a new anime adaptation of Dragon’s Dogma back in 2019. It’s produced as a partnership between Anima, Sublimation, and David Production and is based on the 2012 action-RPG developed by Capcom.At the time of the announcement, Netflix said the Dragon’s Dogma anime will follow “a man’s journey seeking revenge on a dragon who stole his heart. ON his way, the man is brought back to life as an ‘Arisen’. An action-adventure about a man challenged by demons who represent the seven deadly sins of humans.”

The poster conveniently shows off all three elements of the synopsis: dragon, man, man’s heart. Seems simple enough.

Netflix previously found considerable success by adapting Konami’s Castlevania series into an anime with the help of producer Adi Shankar. Shankar is now developing several more video game adaptations for Netflix including ones for Hyper Light Drifter, Assassin’s Creed, and Devil May Cry.
