Airing in China cinemas on 31st July, Dragon Nest: Warriors’ Dawn is expected to rake in between 50 million USD to 80 million USD of ticket sales, according to Shanda Games. The movie is a collaboration of several production companies, said to cost around 10 million USD.
From the new I am reading, Dragon Nest: Warriors’ Dawn will be airing in North America as well on the same day, though details were not given. While directed by a local Chinese director, the film’s producer is Bill Borden, whose work includes Mission Impossible 3 and High School Musical.
Dragon Nest: Warriors’ Dawn talks about a group of adventurers who banded together to fight against the Black Dragon, which is causing chaos on the land. As you might have guessed, the first 4 playable classes, Warrior, Archer, Sorceress and Cleric are part of the main leads.
Shanda Games also boasted about how overseas sales has already hit over 600,000 USD in sales, but I am obviously in doubt about this. From a personal standpoint, I find the animation not really up to my taste, and it has mediocrity written all over it. Warriors’ Dawn will be part 1 of a trilogy.
