A Dota-inspired animated series is quite a surprising move from Valve. After all, there has been no indication that Valve has been working on any Dota-related project that isn’t a game. In fact, we were expecting Dota’s rival, League of Legends, to gets its own animated show first given LoL already has several animated shorts.
DOTA: Dragon’s Blood will release on Netflix on March 25, 2021 at 3:00 PM in the Philippines.
