The official website for the television anime of Shōtarō Tokunō's New Game! manga began streaming a promotional video for the anime's second season (titled New Game!!, with an additional exclamation mark) on Friday. The video previews the anime's opening theme song "STEP by STEP UP↑↑↑↑" by the group fourfolium, composed of the four main voice actresses Yūki Takada, Ayumi Takeo, Megumi Toda, and Megumi Yamaguchi as their respective characters.

The anime will premiere on AT-X , Tokyo MX , MBS , and TV Aichi on July 11. The anime will also premiere on BS11 on July 12.

For the second season, Sumie Kinoshita is now a chief animation director, while Yūichi Oka is no longer listed as one. Yuka Itō joins Ishiguro as a color key artist.

fourfolium is also performing the anime's ending theme song "JUMPin' JUMP UP!!!!". The CD singles for both songs are slated to ship separately on July 26.

In the workplace manga, the main character Aoba Suzukaze graduates from high school and joins a game company. The person who made the game that Aoba loved as a grade-schooler just happens to be Aoba's senior at the company. The story follows girls who work and aspire at the Eaglejump company.

The first television anime premiered last July, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The first season had 12 episodes. Those who purchase all six of the Blu-ray Disc or DVD volumes of the anime can submit proof-of-purchase stubs to receive a new OVA, which serves as "episode 13" of the series.

Tokunō launched the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Charat magazine in 2013, and Houbunsha will publish the sixth volume on June 27.

The manga and anime also inspired a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita video game by 5pb. Games that shipped in Japan on January 26. The game featured the same cast from the first season of the anime.
