A new trailer has been released for the upcoming anime prequel The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf ahead of its release later this month.
The trailer gives us our best look yet at Vesemir, the mentor of everyone’s favourite Witcher Geralt of Riveria. It looks like we’ll get a peek at what he was like as a young monster hunter, before we join him on his quest with the sorceress Tetra. The studio behind the production is Studio Mir, who were also responsible for the recent DOTA: Dragon’s Blood movie.
Executive producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has described the story as letting us see a more thriving brotherhood, given it takes place earlier in the timeline. Witchers are somewhat of a dying breed come the live action series, you see, and it looks like this story may give us more insight on how that came to be.
Of course, there’s also plenty of fight scenes, monsters galore and another glimpse at that mandatory hot tub scene. It’s all looking very swish. We’ll find out if it can live up to the promise when the movie releases on Netflix on August 23. Check out The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf trailer for yourself, down below.
