Kemono Friends Pavilion App Game's Promo Video Streamed
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Bushiroad began streaming a Tokyo Game Show promotional video for its Kemono Friends Pavilion smartphone game on Thursday. The game's official website also announced on Wednesday that advance registration for the game is available now.
More than 50,000 people have already pre-registered for the game. The game is offering in-game bonus items depending on how many people pre-register.
The game is slated to launch this year. Bushiroad's "Kemono Friends Alarm" app, in which characters notify the user of the time, is also available now.
Bushiroad announced in April that it planned to release a new smartphone game this past summer. Unlike the previous smartphone game released before the anime, the new smartphone game will be themed around the anime. Bushiroad said at the time that the smartphone game is the first in the franchise's "Project G" game relaunch plans, and the anime cast later revealed that multiple game projects were in the works.
Nexon's original Kemono Friends app game launched in early 2016 and ended service on December 14 — before the Kemono Friends anime even aired. The 12-episode television anime then premiered on TV Tokyo and TV Osaka on January 10 and ended on March 28. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
The anime's director TATSUKI reported on September 25 that, per a notification from publishing and production company Kadokawa, he is no longer working on the Kemono Friends project. TATSUKI posted his first Tweet in two weeks earlier this month and said, "I don't know what kind of work I'll be doing but I plan to keep on working as an anime creator."
