DOTA: Dragon's Blood is introducing its heroes with a new promo before it releases with Netflix later this month! Netflix has found a lot of success when it comes to bringing video game franchises into the anime world in the past, and it's hoping to do the same once more with a brand new anime series taking on the world of Valve's DOTA 2 video game franchise. Taking its lore and characters and interpreting them into a brand new fantasy series, fans not completely aware of that world might need a primer of what to expect.
Netflix is helping fans do just that as they have dropped a new promo for DOTA: Dragon's Blood featuring explanations and introductions to its characters from popular streaming personality SirActionSlacks. Walking fans through the characters and ideas from the original DOTA franchise getting adapted for the series, this promo is actually our best look at the new series yet before it releases later this month.

Ashley Edward Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor and Black Sails) is serving as the showrunner for the upcoming anime series and executive producer alongside Ryu Ki Hyun as Co-Executive Producer. DOTA: Dragon's Blood will be officially releasing on the streaming service on March 25th worldwide, and it will run for eight episodes at thirty minutes each. As implied through this promo, it's going to feature a brand new take on this massively popular Valve franchise.
Netflix officially describes the upcoming DOTA: Dragon's Blood as such, "The upcoming fantasy series tells the story of 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."
