Uma Musume Pretty Derby Smartphone Game Delayed
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website of Cygames' Uma Musume Pretty Derby franchise revealed on Saturday that Cygames has delayed the smartphone game in the franchise in order to raise the game's quality. The company will reveal the new release period at a later date. The game was originally slated for a release this winter.
The game's concept begins with Uma Musume (Horse Girls), girls endowed with excellent running capability, and who aim to become top idols and compete in the national sports entertainment show "Twinkle Series." Players take the role of both teacher and trainer for the girls in the Nihon Uma Musume Training Center Gakuen (Japan Horse Girls Training Center Academy) and help them make their debut.
The 13-episode Uma Musume Pretty Derby television anime in the franchise premiered on April 1. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. "BNW no Chikai" (BNW's Oath), a new anime that will be bundled with the Uma Musume Pretty Derby television anime's fourth Blu-ray Disc volume on December 19, will have the same length as three episodes.
Jet Kuma and Satoshi Itō's Umayon spinoff four-panel manga is also inspiring an anime project.
