Kemono Friends 3: Planet Tours arcade game debuts at JAEPO event later this month

Sega announced on Saturday that its previously announced game for the Kemono Friends franchise will be two games: an arcade game titled Kemono Friends 3: Planet Tours and smartphone game titled Kemono Friends 3. If the smartphone game receives more than 10,000 preregistrations, production will start on a new anime short for the franchise.

The "all ages card game" arcade game will debut at the JAEPO event for arcade games on January 25-27. The smartphone game will be free to play with optional in-game purchases. Both games will launch this year.

Nexon's original Kemono Friends app game launched in early 2016 and ended service in December of that year — before the Kemono Friends anime even aired. The 12-episode television anime then premiered on TV Tokyo and TV Osaka in January 2017 and ended in March 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.

Kemono Friends 2, the television anime's second season, premiered in Japan on January 7. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime worldwide outside of Asia.

The franchise has also inspired other smartphone apps, manga, as well as several stage plays. A Kemono Friends Picross game for Nintendo Switch launched in Japan and in the West on October 4.
