When will Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix be released?
Thanks to a new trailer that was presented at the Netflix DROP 01 event, it was confirmed that this animation will be available on October 19 exclusively for the streaming platform.
There is no doubt that creative Adi Shankar knows the formula for adapting video game franchises to animated series and as an example is Castlevania and Devil May Cry, which looks very promising. Well, Captain Laserhawk is also proof of this, as the new trailer shows that it will not skimp on eighties action and that thanks to the animation studio Bobbypills (in charge of the animated trailers for Dead Cells) it looks downright great.
Captain Laserhawk will have a lot of references to Ubisoft franchises
