Every Upcoming Animated Series Based On Video Games


Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is the inspiration for this wacky anime from Castlevania series creator Adi Shankar. In an alternate 1950s, cybernetic super-soldier Dolph Laserhawk rebels from the army to pull off a final big heist and live a free life with his boyfriend. The story also features remixed versions of characters from other Ubisoft games, creating a multiverse of sorts. Sporting an 80s synthwave aesthetic and thematic inspiration from DC Comic’s Elseworlds series and Captain N: The Game Master, Captain Laserhawk will consist of six episodes. Ubisoft’s Hélène Juguet, Hugo Revon, and Gérard Guillemot are tapped to produce the series. To quote Shankar himself, Captain Laserhawk is up your alley if you enjoy “anime, Saturday morning cartoons, violent video games marketed to kids, pro wrestling, steel cage matches, cyberpunk dystopias, Paul Verhoeven, and John Carpenter.” | Trailer
