The official website for the anime portion of Cygames' Uma Musume Pretty Derby project began streaming a new promotional video on Sunday 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. The video shows footage of the race in the new anime, and includes commentary by professional race caller Raita Nakano.
The site also revealed a new visual for the anime, featuring the 10 main characters from the original anime, while also adding Biwa Hayahide, Narita Taishin, and Winning Ticket, who will be the focus of "BNW no Chikai." The new anime will have the same length as three episodes.
