Fans of the DOTA: Dragon’s Blood got their first taste of the show’s second season during The International 2021 with a new trailer.
Right after a nailbiter series between Team Secret and PSG.LGD, Valve gave fans a first look at the second season of DOTA: Dragon’s Blood. Netflix previously confirmed a second season of the Dota 2 anime, but this is the first look fans have gotten at the new story.
DOTA: Dragon’s Blood season two seemingly picks up right where the first season left off. Davion continues to fight for control over his body with Slyrak while Mirana, Luna, and Marci have circled up.
The trailer shows off Davion’s half-dragon form, which is much more humanoid than the in-game ability. It also shows several other dragons attacking a castle, though their exact goal is unclear. The lotuses that were central to the first season’s story also look to be of significance in season two.
The trailer also shows that Fymryn has officially joined the heroes and is looking like a sidekick to Davion. Season one teased that Fymryn’s story may have ended as she renounced the forgotten moon goddess, Mene. Despite that, she’s sticking around in the battle and will likely be in a supporting role for Davion.
Her evasive magic produced some of the most exciting fight scenes of season one. She was one of the likely candidates to be added to the game after season one, but that didn’t come to fruition. Considering Marci’s upcoming addition to the game, Fymryn could also become a playable hero in the future.
There will likely be several new characters introduced in DOTA: Dragon’s Blood season two, with one established Dota 2 hero being among them. Lina the Slayer makes an appearance during the season two trailer and talks with Slyrak, suggesting that the eldwurm plays some role in her fire powers.
Her sister Crystal Maiden could also make an appearance, though she isn’t confirmed. Early peeks also showed a character who appears to be the same species as Pangolier similar to the cat people in season one that were the same species as Bounty Hunter.
Dota 2’s newest hero Marci continues her role as a secondary protagonist. The mute pugilist will be added as a playable hero sometime in the fall of this year, so she’s technically a new hero appearance in Dragon’s Blood. Other established heroes like Invoker, Terrorblade, and Luna also make a return.
The TI10 trailer for DOTA: Dragon’s Blood season two said it arrives in January.
No exact date was given but this is very far ahead of schedule. Season two was only confirmed in April 2021, and the first season was in development for years. A follow-up coming less than a year after being confirmed is a welcome surprise.
