Netflix is reportedly developing a new anime series based on the popular video game franchise Dark Souls, according to a reliable source.
The streaming giant has not officially confirmed the project, but GiantFreakingRobot claims that it has exclusive information from a trusted source that Netflix is working on a Dark Souls anime.
Dark Souls is a series of action role-playing games developed by FromSoftware, known for their challenging gameplay, rich lore, and atmospheric world. The first game was released in 2011, followed by two sequels in 2014 and 2016. The games have received critical acclaim and have a loyal fan base.
According to GiantFreakingRobot, the Dark Souls anime will likely start with the events of the first game, which follows an undead warrior who embarks on a quest to break the curse of the dark sign and link the fire in a dying world.
The source also suggests that the anime will be faithful to the tone and style of the games, featuring dark fantasy elements, brutal combat, and grotesque enemies.
Netflix has a track record of adapting video games into successful anime series, such as Castlevania, Dota: Dragon’s Blood, and Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. The streaming service also has several other video game adaptations in the works, such as The Witcher, Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, and Cyberpunk 2077.
While Netflix has yet to confirm the rumors of a Dark Souls anime adaptation, fans of the challenging video game series should keep an eye out for more news in the coming months.
