The anime also features voice acting from Josh Keaton (Voltron: Legendary Defender), Lara Pulver (Sherlock), Troy Baker (The Last of Us 1&2), and Tony Todd (Platoon).

The trailer for their upcoming epic video game adaptation from Seoul-based animation studio Studio Mir promises plenty of conflict. Between sweeping shots of crowds rallying for war, powerful dragons, unknown powers and powerful magic, the stage is set for some epic confrontations. 

DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’s summarised as a story following “a conflicted yet courageous Dragon Knight must use the power of the dragon within to stop a deadly demon in this epic fantasy based on the online game.” 

DOTA: Dragon’s Blood will release on Netflix worldwide on March 25, 2021. 

DOTA: Dragon’s Blood is based on the hugely popular video game series of the same name from Valve. The current title, DOTA 2 (Defense of the Ancients), is a hugely successful MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game that pits two teams of five players against one another in strategic team battles. In a match, each player selects one of the many heroes, each with their own unique abilities, and brings them to the fray.
