Video game enthusiasts (and especially those who are also fans of anime!), here's something to look forward to next month! A new anime series inspired by the popular multiplayer online battle arena game Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) is coming to Netflix. 

The global streaming platform has been steadily venturing into the world of anime. They've also recently announced a new animated series inspired by Greek mythology. Now they're tapping into one of the world's most popular online games.

In collaboration with Valve, the developer of the online game, DOTA: Dragon's Blood will have eight episodes to tell the story of the Dragon Knight Davion. Additionally, its logline says, "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."

The animated series will be produced by Ashley Edward Miller, who has also worked on Thor and X-Men: First Class. Ryu Ki Hyun, who has previously worked on Voltron, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and The Legend of Korra, also joins as co-executive producer.

Netflix just dropped a short teaser for the new anime series to give fans a peek at what they can expect. Dota joined in by sharing the news to their followers on social media, which got mixed reactions from regular players and avid fans. Under the comments section, some were hyped up over the Netflix adaptation of the game which will go in depth in telling stories from the Dota universe, while others felt very skeptic about it, saying they should have featured a different hero or that they should focus on improving the game and fixing bugs instead.
