Assassin’s Creed Anime Series Coming to Netflix

Assassin’s Creed Anime Series Coming to Netflix

It looks like more videogame-based anime is coming out. Netflix Castlevania creator Adi Shankar has announced that an Assassin’s Creed anime will be making its way to the streaming service.

Shankar made the announcement in a Facebook post.

The creator is better known for his work on Dredd, Machine Gun Preacher, and The Grey.

What’s interesting to note is that Ubisoft reached out to him to work on the project. Further, the anime will tell an original story. It’s unclear if fan favourite characters like Ezio could make an appearance, or if a wholly original cast will also be created.

Shankar’s Castlevania anime – which was announced back in February – will be releasing on Netflix July 7. It’s likely that this is the American date however, so you can probably expect to see it in New Zealand on July 8.

Please have more time in the animus and less time jumping around in the real world while attached to the animus.

Hopefully this doesn't mean that the Castlevania series is only going to be a one shot...

A man can dream hoping to see a live action AC TV series to the calibre and quality of Game of Thrones.

Yeah that would be cool.
They did that short series of live action ones a few years ago and I remember them being great and thought they'd follow it up with something more.
