Every Netflix video game series and movie announced or available

There's plenty more in store for video game fans on Netflix.

We thought we were big video game fans, but Netflix is making us look like we’ve never even heard of Mario before. Not content with the success of The Witcher, the streaming service has gone all in on gaming, with show after show based on popular video games. So many, in fact, that it’s getting hard to keep up. To help you plan your watching schedule for the future, we’ve catalogued all the video game Netflix shows that are available now or will be funneled down the magical web pipes to our screens in the future.

All video game Netflix series and movies

As it stands, Netflix has four video-game-inspired series available on its streaming service, with more to come. Please note that we’re only including Netflix original productions, not all video game movies on the platform. Don’t worry though, as most of the others are rubbish, anyway.

Castlevania

Style: 2D animated TV series

What it’s all about: The first of many, Castlevania’s animated adaptation sees Trevor Belmont (played by Richard Armitage) teaming up with Speaker magician Sypha and half-vampire Alucard to take down Dracula and other mighty vampire lords. The show’s been so successful that we’d already enjoyed three full seasons.

Dragon’s Dogma

Style: 2.5D animated TV series

What it’s all about: After his village and family are decimated by a dragon, Ethan is brought back from death as an Arisen. He vows to take down the dragon that ruined his life and killed hundreds, but the journey doesn’t quite play out as expected.

Minecraft: Story Mode

Style: Interactive animated TV series

What it’s all about: Prior to the studio’s financial collapse, Telltale Games ported their episodic, point-and-click adventure to Netflix. Viewers can interact with the blocky story at key moments to make decisions using their TV remote. Only five episodes from the first season are available on the service.

The Witcher

Style: Live-action TV series

What it’s all about: Geralt of Rivia just wants to hunt monsters for a living, but other political machinations keep getting in the way. The story is based on the fantasy books by Andrzej Sapkowski which also inspired CD Projekt Red’s video games. Along with Geralt, the plot follows new mage Yennefer and orphaned runaway Ciri. Their fates end up intertwined as war breaks out across the land. The first season proved so successful for Netflix that you can be certain plenty more of this fantasy adventure is on the way.

That’s all you can watch right now, but there are so many more Netflix video game shows to come. Here’s what we know about each of them so far.

Assassin’s Creed

Style: Live-action TV series

Expected release: 2022 or later

What it’s all about: We don’t really know yet! Ubisoft’s Daneille Keinik and Jason Altman will be executive producers, but beyond that all is quiet. Expect an ancient history setting with Assassins and Templars vying for power. It can't be worse than the movie, can it?

The Cuphead Show

Style: 2D animated kids series

Expected release: 2021

What it’s all about: A kid’s cartoon based on the nails-nard co-op platformer. Sadly it won’t be produced in the same pen-and-paper style as the video game’s animations, but we’re hopeful it’ll retain the same impressive look. Tru Valentino and Frank Todaro will voice Cuphead and Mugman, respectively.

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners

Style: 2D anime TV series

Expected release: 2022

What it’s all about: A 10-episode anime series which follows a street kid growing up in Night City. The renowned Studio Trigger will helm the animation, with Hiroyuki Imaishi (Kill la Kill, Promare) directing. It’s an exciting prospect, despite its video game inspiration falling rather flat upon arrival. 

Devil May Cry

Style: 2D animated TV series

Expected release: Unknown

What it’s all about: Announced back in 2018, we’ve heard almost nothing since about this adaptation of Capcom’s demon-hunting action series. The Castlevania series’ Adi Shankar is working on the project, but we’re waiting to hear more about what’s involved. Castlevania’s third season included a brief nod to the DMC franchise, which has us hopeful that the show hasn’t been dropped.

The Division

Style: Live-action movie

Expected release: 2022 or later

What it’s all about: An action-thriller inspired by the events of the Tom Clany video game. In case you’ve not played it, the game sees New York ravaged by a virus. In the aftermath, gangs and various factions have assumed control of the city’s districts. The player, as part of a secret organization, must head inside to save civilians and restore control. Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal have been brought on board to star.

Dota 2

Style: 2D animated series

Expected release: March 25

The biggest "wait, really?" series to appear on this risk is also one of the closest to release. Partnering with Valve, Netflix is bringing Dota 2 to its streaming service. The story follows Dragon Knight and Mirana as they battle an ancient eldwurm. It's being produced by Studio MIR, who previously created The Legend of Korra and Voltron.

Final Fantasy

Style: Live-action TV series

Expected release: Unknown

What it’s all about: Netflix’s foray into cluttered halls of Square Enix’s RPG series will take its inspiration from Final Fantasy XIV. The MMORPG continues to draw a huge player base, making it a prime fantasy setting to be explored. What little we know of the plot so far details a struggle between magic and technology in a land at war. Expect chocobos.

Resident Evil

Style: Live-action TV series

Expected release: Unknown

What it’s all about: Inspired by the survival horror games, the Netflix series will take place over two timelines. The first will follow siblings Jade and Billie Wesker as they move into a town called New Raccoon City (no concerns there) while the second is set 16 years later, following an older Jade after the T-Virus has devastated the world’s population. Supernatural writer and co-executive producer Andrew Dabb is taking charge of the series.

Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness

Style: 3D animated TV series

Expected release: 2021

What it’s all about: Resident Evil 2 protagonists Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy return in the latest animated take on the series. As you might expect, it’ll be a horror series, though the blurb promises a sci-fi twist to the proceedings. Capcom's Hiroyuki Kobayashi is the lead producer.

Splinter Cell

Style: Animated TV series

Expected release: Unknown

What it’s all about: Splinter Cell’s hopes of ever getting a new video game grow slimmer each year, but at least there’s a Netflix show on the way. John Wick writer Derek Kolstad is writing and producing, with two seasons reportedly in the works. If you’ve forgotten what Splinter Cell is all about in the aeons since a game released, the story follows covert operative Sam Fisher as he takes on black ops for the NSA’s Third Echelon division.

Tomb Raider

Style: 2D animated TV series

Expected Release: Unknown

What it's all about: Legendary and DJ2 Entertainment are tackling this animated series which follows on directly from the events in the rebooted video game series. It'll be set some time later in Lara's career, with Lara now a confident Tomb Raider.

The Witcher: Blood Origin

Style: Live-action TV series

Expected release: Unknown

What it's all about: So popular was Henry Cavill's rendition of Geralt that a full spin-off series has already been confirmed. It'll be set over a thousand years before the main TV show and details the creation of the first Witcher.

Phew! That’s an awful lot of Netflix video game shows and movies in the works. While we don’t know for sure that all of them will reach fruition, there’s a lot to look forward to for gamers subscribed to the service.
