Store: Kemono Friends Gets Stage Musical, New Game

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
"New screen project" for franchise previously announced

The Akihabara-based store Busō Shōten posted an image of the wraparound jacket band on the Kemono Friends Official Guide Book 2 book on Friday. The band reveals that the Kemono Friends franchise is getting a stage musical and a new game. The guide book also reaffirms that a "new screen project" has been green-lit for the franchise.

The book will officially ship on Monday in Japan.

The staff of the Kemono Friends anime had announced the "new screen project" last month.

The 12-episode Kemono Friends television anime premiered on TV Tokyo and TV Osaka on January 10 and ended on March 28. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The anime received an unofficial "episode 12.1" earlier this month that was not part of the new video project.

Nexon's original app game launched in early 2016 and ended service on December 14. Nexon announced in February that the app would not return despite the anime's popularity, but a spokesperson for Nexon later stated that the return of the smartphone app "is possible."

In the RPG, animals around the world have transformed into girls and players could recruit them into their party for battle.

Concept designer Mine Yoshizaki revealed in February that there are plans to continue the Kemono Friends project after the anime season that just finished. The anime is getting "original content" on TV Tokyo's new AniTele app, which launched on April 1.
