Kemono Friends 3 Short Anime Green-Lit
posted on by Egan Loo
Sega announced on Wednesday that production is starting on a new original short anime for the Kemono Friends franchise, since the accompanying Kemono Friends 3 smartphone game has garnered more than 10,000 preregistrations. If the game receives 15,000 preregistrations, Sega will unveil additional information.
The game app is one of two games. The other is an arcade game titled Kemono Friends 3: Planet Tours. 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.
