The logo shows a wolf mask of sorts against a pitch black screen, and it is accompanied by some ominous music. The sterling mask tarnishes as text appears baring the anime's name and the whole logo loops for a few seconds before fading into black.
This logo reveal might not be much, but it shows fans that things are moving behind the scenes. The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf has been a point of excitement since its announcement, so you can see why fans want more information on the film ASAP. And while those details are slow coming, writer Beau DeMayo did tell ComicBook.com in an interview this year that this anime will be 100% canon to the main show.
"The show is... It's funny because it's such a unique property. Because the show is based on the books and not the game. It's been an interesting thing to control that perspective, in terms of, we were looking at the books, always looking at the books. And there's always going to be some similarities because they're all coming from the same mothership, basically," the writer shared.
"But the anime itself, for as much as I can say about it, because as you know, Netflix, as well," he continued before adding: "It is definitely something that is in canon with our live action series."
