Dragon's Dogma Anime Coming to Netflix

Anime adaptation for cult classic video game Dragon's Dogma is arriving on Netflix on September 17, 2020.

Although adaptation of a popular video game franchise in other media is always a risky venture, online streaming service Netflix has seen a decent success with shows like Castlevania anime and live-action The Witcher series in recent years.

In a surprise announcement today, Netflix has confirmed an anime TV show based on popular video game Dragon's Dogma, an action fantasy classic from developer/publisher Capcom which is scheduled to premiere on September 17, 2020.

Dragon's Dogma takes place in a world that has not been attacked by a Dragon for more than a century and one day, it suddenly appears and starts attacking a small village, where lived a man named Ethan, who tries to protect his family.

However, things didn't work out for him but he ended up becoming an Arisen instead of getting killed in action. Ethan embarks on an epic journey to kill the Dragon and he enlists help from a Pawn, a being that only exists is to hunt Dragon.

Dragon's Dogma originally debuted on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012, which received an enhanced version later, tilled Dark Arisen. Fans are repeatedly pleading for a sequel and yet, Capcom seemingly has no interest in a series revival.

Netflix had a fairly successful run with Castlevania anime that started in 2017 and won over critical acclaim but Dragon's Dogma is not a well-known IP for them to consider an anime adaptation, despite having a devoted following.

Resident Evil 4 Remake May Not Reveal in 2020

Capcom reportedly will not reveal Resident Evil 4 Remake this year, according to reliable franchise leaker.

In a growing trend of modern-day remake of classic titles these days, developer/publisher Capcom has seen immense success with recent release of Resident Evil 2 Remake in 2019 and Resident Evil 3 Remake in earlier this year.

According to an early report, Capcom has greenlit development for Resident Evil 4 Remake at new Osaka-based developer studio M-Two but will not be revealed this year given their current focus on 2021 release of Resident Evil: Village.

Reputed industry leaker AestheticGamer1 has recently revealed on social media that RE4 Remake will not be ready for a showcase this year since its development phase is still on early stage with a set release window of 2022.

Capcom is said to have planned for a larger production unit for upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake than they had in past for Resident Evil 2 and taken support from developers who worked on both Devil May Cry 5 and RE2 Remake.

AestheticGamer1 has stated on Twitter lately that RE4 most probably won't be ready to reveal this year.

AestheticGamer1 has become a very reliable source on Resident Evil series of games these days with his series of authentic leaks on Resident Evil 8 regarding Chris Redfield redesign, enemy types, release window, story setting and much more.

He reaffirms that Capcom is on board with RE4 and is already working on it but those who are expecting a reveal will be disappointed. Capcom is not ready to officially confirm Resident Evil 4 yet until they release Resident Evil: Village in 2021.

Resident Evil 4 originally debuted on Nintendo GameCube back in 2005 as an action-horror game and met with worldwide acclaim as a staple to its genre before Capcom ported it to almost every existing gaming console system ever.

Resident Evil 4 Remake will reportedly have some gameplay changes and added story elements. Also, there could be a number of surprises that Capcom would want to hold off until a certain time prior to its rumored 2022 launch window.

Resident Evil 4 Remake to Feature Expanded Story

Capcom is likely to change Resident Evil 4 gameplay and feature an "expanded" story, according to leaker AestheticGamer.

Back in April 2020, reports of developer/publisher Capcom working on Resident Evil 4 Remake with a planned release window of 2022 came out shortly after release of highly-anticipated survival horror game Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Latest information from reputed leaker AestheticGamer1 reveals that upcoming RE4 Remake can make some changes to original gameplay and may even feature expanded story elements, adding lore for 2005 action-horror release.

When asked by a Twitter user about new changes in Resident Evil 4 gameplay and premise lately, AestheticGamer1 reveals that Capcom would much likely to expand upon its original story to an extent and revamp gameplay.

When RE4 came out on Nintendo GameCube, it single-handedly revolutionized entire Resident Evil franchise forever. Capcom needs to update the game and move away from RE2 and RE3 Remake to impress new generation of players.

AestheticGamer1 also hints at some possible major change in Resident Evil 4 Remake in another thread.

While citing it's too early at this point to talk about anything before an official announcement, he randomly points out that Capcom is greatly expanding story and one of them revolves around iconic chainsaw-wielding villager Dr. Salvador.

Salvador was initially introduced in Resident Evil 4 as Chainsaw Man, a Plaga infected Ganado enemy type wearing a burlap potato sack that would chop off heads of any stranger on sight with a revving chainsaw and won't go down easily.

During a recent interview in May 2020, Resident Evil 3 Remake game director Kiyohiko Sakata reveals that Capcom changed Nemesis to make a connection with Resident Evil 4, low-key confirming that a remake being in development.

Aside from attacking targets, Nemesis is given abilities to create a new zombie-type called "Tentacle Head". You can take what AestheticGamer1 said with some level of certainty, given his past record on Resident Evil: Village leaks so far.

In recent remake of Resident Evil 3, a popular character was completely left out from ending sequence. Capcom didn't offer multiple endings like 1999 classic and even removed popular Mercenaries mode, which was disappointing.

Capcom will soon be venturing into another modern-day remake project with Resident Evil 4 Remake for the third time, following blockbuster success of Resident Evil 2 (2019) and its slightly less appreciated sequel Resident Evil 3 (2020).

Resident Evil 8: Village Will Release for Next-Gen Only

Capcom announced Resident Evil 8: Village at PS5 reveal event for Windows PC and next-gen consoles only.

Although there has been no confirmation from developer/publisher Capcom about upcoming survival horror title Resident Evil 8 since release of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, known insiders leaked many interesting details online.

With recent showcase of PlayStation 5 Reveal Event, an official announcement was made by Capcom for Resident Evil VIII: Village, which is currently set to arrive for next-gen consoles as a follow-up sequel to Resident Evil 7.

From its debut trailer and official press release, it seems that Resident Evil Village will only be launched on PC via Steam, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, despite an early retailer leak of PlayStation 4 version suggested cross-gen release.

Capcom originally started development of RE: Village as a cross-generation game but due to unintended circumstances, they recently had to shift focus on next-generation consoles only, according to industry leaker AestheticGamer.

In recent Twitter thread, AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem revealed reasons for RE8 becoming a next-gen title.

RELATED: Resident Evil 4 Remake Reportedly in Works

Even four months ago, Capcom planned to release Resident Evil 8 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms but that idea had to abandon midway because of longer loading times of last-gen consoles and a major graphical overhaul.

To get over these setbacks, Capcom simply stopped working on PS4 and Xbox versions so RE8 will have almost no loading time at all. Also, they can push for better graphics quality in next-gen without being stuck to last-gen system.

RE8: Village brings back Ethan Winters from RE7, who has resumed a normal life in peace with his wife Mia. Then one day BSAA agent Chris Redfield suddenly showed up at his doorstep to cause a tragic event, throwing his life into turmoil.

There were rumors of Resident Evil 8 being the darkest among whole RE series, featuring scary enemy designs and a redesigned Chris Redfield will be serving as an antagonist, many of which has already been confirmed in recent trailer.

Those who have missed a first-look at Resident Evil VIII: Village can take a look at its official trailer below.

Village has a lot of loading zones and travelling though locations to focus on exploration, which was limited by its last-gen versions. Resident Evil 8 is playable now but Capcom is working on a graphical overhaul, starting in late 2019.

Given how Resident Evil VIII: Village continues to pursue first-person horror, there might be a version to support PSVR in future eventually. Capcom may also end up announcing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One port for RE8 on a later date.

In context of "Uncut Edition" label, RE8 most likely won't be censored for customers living in Germany at all. Its product description on website also claimed the game to be "Darkest and cruelest addition to Resident Evil franchise".

Resident Evil 3 Remake Won't Have Any DLC

Game producer Peter Fabiano confirms no future add-ons or DLC updates for Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Though a series of successful modern-day remakes, developer/publisher Capcom has managed to reignite hype and receive acclaim for Resident Evil survivor horror series, which is concluded with recent release of Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Despite its bright sides, a faction of players believed RE3 Remake is relatively short for its AAA-price tag and hoping for some future DLC, a notion that has been shot down by game producer Peter Fabiano who called it a finished project.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 Will Be Cross-Gen Title

In an interview with Silicon Era, producer Peter Fabiano was asked whether they are working on any tweaks or updates for RE3 and his straight answer of Resident Evil 3 being a finished product means there will be no future DLC.

Most people were just happy to see Jill Valentine return and everything else Capcom offered in RE3, except for old players who thought this definitive remake lacks content in terms of Clock Tower, Grave Digger and more that were cut out.

RELATED: Resident Evil 3 Changes Nemesis for Resident Evil 4 Connection

Resident Evil 3 Remake story campaign mode was very short and there was not enough to explore. RE3 came bundled with Resident Evil: Resistance for sure but these two halves still didn't offer a complete experience for many.

Majority of old-school fans weren't actually excited to find out that RE3 Remake will not feature multiple endings and iconic Mercenaries mode from 1999 original game, which was replaced by asymmetrical multiplayer mode Resistance.

RELATED: Capcom May be Teasing Next Resident Evil Game for 2021

Fabiano leaves no vagueness in his answer when he shut down any possibility of add-ons or DLC for Resident Evil 3. However, Capcom can always change their plan in future and eventually come up with something new to please their fans.

Also, his comment did not mean that Resident Evil: Resistance will not be receiving further DLC updates since it's an ongoing game. Capcom recently added new mastermind character Nicholai Ginovaef from RE3 for Resistance last month.

RELATED: Resident Evil 4 Remake Reportedly in Works

A large part of Resident Evil community who purchased RE3 Remake on launch don't really care for Resistance and therefore, lack of support for core game is heavily disappointing considering its full price and overwhelming fan reception.

With no hopes for DLC content to improve story mode of Resident Evil 3 Remake, players can now resort to finding more hidden Easter Eggs, do speedrunning, trying different difficulty settings and modding to squeeze out more from it.
