Everything Netflix announced during Geeked Week day five
Netflix’s Geeked Week day five showcase focused on upcoming Netflix mobile games as well as series based on video games. There was plenty to get excited about, from more episodes of The Cuphead Show to the Dragon Age animated series. In case you missed it, here’s everything Netflix announced during the show.
The show kicked off with the announcement of Dragon Age Absolution, an animated series due out December 2022. As a Dragon Age fan, I’m there for the lore. Hopefully it’s a good show, too.
Next up, we got a fresh look at Tekken: Bloodline, a new anime based on Bandai Namco’s famous fighting game franchise. It’s due out on Netflix at some point this year.
Next! Shadow and Bone: Destinies is a narrative RPG based on the Shadow and Bone fantasy Netflix show. It’s in development at Chimera Entertainment.
Moving on, there’s a Too Hot to Handle dating sim, based on the Netflix show. The game follows the TV show rules, apparently. Go nuts.
