The official website for the anime portion of Cygames' Uma Musume Pretty Derby project began streaming a preview video for "BNW no Chikai" (BNW's Oath), the new anime that will be bundled with the Uma Musume Pretty Derby television anime's fourth Blu-ray Disc volume, on Sunday.

The November 14 release will also include an original prose story titled "Uma Hanashi" (Horse Talk) with a plot that was not portrayed in the television anime.

The 13-episode television anime premiered on April 1. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

Kei Oikawa (This Art Club Has a Problem!, Outbreak Company, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!) directed the anime at P.A. Works. Yousuke Kabashima (D.Gray-man Hallow, Lord Marksman and Vanadis) designed the characters and served as chief animation director. Masafumi Sugiura (aka Pierre Sugiura, Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru scripts) and Cygames' Akihiro Ishihara both wrote and oversaw the series scripts. UTAMARO movement composed the music at Lantis.

Cygames' Uma Musume Pretty Derby game is currently in development, with a planned release on iOS and Android this winter.
