After months of silence since its first teaser, Capcom has finally shed more light on its first ever Netflix CG (computer generated) anime series based on the reputable franchise, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
The biggest standout news we got was that leading man/woman Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield will be voiced by the same voice actors in 2019's Resident Evil 2 Remake, Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello.
RE: Infinite Darkness will see fan favourites Leon and Claire reuniting once more to battle a zombie outbreak in the White House and untangle the mysteries surrounding a strange drawing that may hint at a new form of the virus.
The newest RE endeavour is produced and overseen by series veteran Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who not only had his hands on some of RE's game titles (RE1, 2 and 4), but also all of the RE animated features, including RE: Degeneration, RE: Damnation and RE: Vendetta.
Plus, the studio behind anime series Lupin the 3rd and Detective Conan, TMS Entertainment, will be leading its production.
Netflix will also be presenting a panel to introduce RE: Infinite Darkness in AnimeJapan, one of the world's biggest anime events in Japan.
No release date has been announced for RE: Infinite Darkness, other than it'll "launch exclusively on Netflix later this year".
When the teaser for the upcoming Dota 2 anime, DOTA: Dragon's Blood was released, we were hyped. Our lifelong (okay, maybe just this writer's) dreams of having an animated Dota 2 series to watch, let alone an official one from Valve produced by Studio MIR, were finally coming true! Since the show is only three weeks (and a bit) away, Netflix has dropped another video for the show as promised.
The two and a half minute-long trailer features a lot of info to unpack. From the characters of the show, the world, the story, and perhaps hints of new heroes or cosmetics that might make their way into the official game. Here's some of the things we managed to spot - Selemene, the goddess of the moon, who is hinted at not being who she claims to be; Dragon Knight vs Slyrak (perhaps the showdown where he obtains his powers?) and a comedic moment between Davion and Mirana (who seems to enjoy her booze!).
Netflix also released posters of the main characters that line up to provide a QR code leading to an unlisted video showing Terrorblade - we don't know what role he'll play in the series yet, but it's probably significant enough to warrant his own video clip! We now know why we had the Foulfell Cavern Crawl during the last battlepass and the lotuses that were added to the map recently. 25 March can't come soon enough! Who's stoked for DOTA: Dragon's Blood?
Dota 2 fans today woke up to some surprising news out of nowhere - Valve and Netflix announcing the launch of the upcoming animated TV series, DOTA: Dragon's Blood. Based on the popular multiplayer game with the largest prize pool for any single esports tournament, the 8-episode series will revolve around Davion, "a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world. Following encounters with a powerful, ancient eldwurm as well as the noble Princess Mirana on a secret mission of her own, Davion becomes embroiled in events much larger than he could have ever imagined."
Ashley Edward Miller, known for his writing on X-Men: First Class, Thor, and Andromeda will serve as showrunner and executive producer for the anime series. With Ki Hun Ryu as co-executive producer and the animation by Studio MIR (The Legend of Korra and Voltron: Legendary Defender), we know that it will be in good hands.
Not much has been shown in the announcement video, but based on the visuals released (see above), we can expect Invoker to make an appearance on the show as well. Check it out below:
Could this show be the first of many things that Valve has in store to draw new players into the highly-competitive strategy game? Only time will tell. DOTA: Dragon's Blood will premier on Netflix on 25 March.
One of the world's most popular manga/anime series of Attack On Titan will soon be landing on Free Fire, the world's most downloaded game last year. After their recent One Punch Man collaboration, it seems only natural for Garena to partner with manga publisher Kodansha and bring the dark fantasy universe to Bermuda.
Instead of introducing menacingly hideous Titans to rip players to shreds, Free Fire will instead feature content that's a little less bleaker than that, such as Survey Corps division attire and Titan-inspired costumes. There will also be exclusive gun skins and other in-game goodies for you to score and charge into battle with.
The Free Fire x Attack On Titan update will arrive sometime in March.
The Free Fire x Attack On Titan collaboration is a continuation of Garena's efforts to partner with the world's renown media names for fans to enjoy the mobile battle royale even further. Other crossover events include Netflix's Money Heist and football celebrity Cristiano Ronaldo's guest appearance as a futuristic saviour of the world.
If you're a Free Fire fan who loves manga or anime, you have one more reason to love your favourite game now, with One-Punch Man content entering the world of Garena's mobile battle royale. It seems fitting that one of the world’s most popular mobile titles teamed up its most powerful hero.
The limited-time crossover event will see iconic One-Punch Man costumes, in-game items and collectibles up for grabs by fans everywhere. Fortunately, more One-Punch Man-themed goodies are incoming, so brace yourselves for more updates.
Stay tuned to eGG Network for more Free Fire news and updates.
