Motion Twin is collaborating with Paris-based animation studio Bobbypills to transform the outstanding rogue-like action-platformer, Dead Cells, into an exciting 10-episode animated series set to premiere next year.
Bobbypills, known for their remarkable animated trailers for Dead Cells and the upcoming Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon spinoff, Captain Laserhawk from Ubisoft, will take viewers on a journey to a cursed island plagued by a mysterious epidemic.
Dead Cells Animated Series Has an Eerie Ambiance
According to the official announcement, “After the ill-advised king of the island creates a remedy that inadvertently transforms the population into monstrous creatures, prophecies foretelling the arrival of a flame-headed hero begin to emerge. Unbeknownst to many, this decapitated hero is real, but his sole desire is to be left in peace, with no intentions of saving a kingdom.”
The Dead Cells Animated Series is being produced in collaboration with the French anime streaming service ADN. Initially, the series consisting of 10 episodes, each lasting seven minutes, will be exclusively available in France before a global release at a later date.
This announcement follows closely on the heels of Motion Twin and Evil Empire revealing that Dead Cells has surpassed 10 million copies sold since its initial release in 2017. The studios have also confirmed that development on the game will continue for at least two more years, until 2025, following the highly acclaimed Castlevania expansion released in March.
