Netflix has now discovered a number of game brands for itself and anime or series implementations are in development or have already been published. The next franchise in the league is supposed to be Monster Hunter.
Monster Hunter is Capcom’s biggest and most successful brand right now – and you’ll be able to watch it on Netflix in the foreseeable future. With “Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild”, another game brand is now receiving an anime version from the streaming giant. The starting shot should be given in August 2021.
The plot of the film follows the story of Aiden, a young man who sees himself as the protector of his isolated village. This is threatened by a dragon, which is why Aiden goes in search of help and meets the hunter Julius and his friends. These are members of the Hunters Guild and give Aiden a new life as a Monster Hunter.
Aiden isn’t just a character freshly created for the anime. Rather, this is Ace Cadet from Monster Hunter 4 and the Excitable A-Lister in Monster Hunter World. The Netflix flick thus also acts as its origin story.
The anime is the latest project in the partnership between Capcom and Netflix. Previously, “Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness” was released last week.
