This is not the first game adaptation for Netflix anime series. Castlevania was renewed for a fourth season in 2020. Also, this series follows the same story as the video game of which the anime is based on.
Here’s the synopsis for a video game:
“The game opens with a group led by a knight named Savan nearing the end of a quest to defeat the Dragon, a being which signals the end of days. An unknown time later in the present day Duchy of Gransys, the protagonist’s village of Cassardis is attacked by the newly-arrived Dragon. When the protagonist attacks the Dragon, the Dragon takes their heart.
The protagonist remains alive after this, marking them as the “Arisen”, a figure destined to face the Dragon and stop the coming apocalypse; the Arisen is served by Pawns, human-like beings who live to fight the Dragon, and the Arisen creates a new Pawn shortly after beginning their quest. Heading to a nearby encampment, the protagonist defends an encampment of soldiers from a Hydra attack, taking one of its heads before driving it back; this is witnessed by Mercedes Marten, a soldier sent from a neighboring nation to support Gransys’s Duke Edmun Dragonsbane against the Dragon.”
However, there is no casting with characters that has been announced for the adaptation. We can update when new details share for the Dragon’s Dogma series. Check out the video game trailer below.
