The series is being made by Bobbypills, the French studio behind the game’s animated trailers, and co-produced by anime streaming service Animation Digital Network.
It will consist of 10, roughly seven-minute episodes, and will launch next year in France before being made available worldwide.
“The show takes place on (surprise, surprise) a cursed island that has been racked by a strange plague,” according to the description accompanying a teaser trailer, which is viewable below.
“After the island’s foolish king develops a remedy that ends up turning the population into monstrous creatures, prophecies depicting a flame-headed hero who will kill the crazy King begin to appear.
“As it so happens, this beheaded hero is real, but saving a kingdom isn’t on his schedule and he just wants to be left alone. Well, guess who isn’t going to be left alone…”
Motion Twin recently announced that Dead Cells has surpassed 10 million sales since releasing in early access in 2017.
Evil Empire, an offshoot studio established to handle the game’s DLC, also said the game will be supported with new content until at least the end of 2024.
