Smartphone MMORPG inspires 2-cour TV anime this year

Square Enix began streaming the opening video for its Operation Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur (Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur) smartphone MMORPG on Wednesday. The video features the game's theme song "Rebellion" by Nana Mizuki.

The game has not yet been scheduled for launch in Japan, but it launched in China on iOS and Android devices in March. The franchise is also getting the Kō-Kyō-Sei Million Arthur action game for iOS and Android devices this year.

The game is inspiring a television anime adaptation that is planned for a half year (two cours), starting this year. Mitsutoshi Satō is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Tsuyoshi Tamai (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, Strike Witches) is in charge of the series scripts. Genco is producing.

Square Enix released its first mobile card game based on the folklore of King Arthur in Japan in 2012 as Kaku San Sei Million Arthur. South Korean publisher Gamevil brought the game to North America and Europe in 2015, after Square Enix closed the game's Japanese servers in March 2015.

The game inspired a live-action TV show in 2014, and it has also inspired the Jaku-San-Sei Million Arthur four-panel manga. An anime adaptation of the manga started streaming in fall of 2015. Square Enix also released a sequel game, titled Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur, in Japan in November of 2014.
