A3! Game App Gets Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The A3! Blooming Live 2019 event announced on Sunday that an anime adaptation of Liber Entertainment's A3! male actor-training smartphone game has been green-lit.
The A3! game debuted for smartphones in January 2017, reaching two million downloads within a month of its debut. The game has five million downloads as of March 2018. The app also ranked #2 in iOS game sales in Japan two times on January 9 and January 10, 2018. CYBIRD will release the game worldwide in English.
The game features four male actor groups, each themed after a particular season. Players take the role of the producer, and are responsible for training the performance skills of their group.
The game inspired a stage play that debuted at The Galaxy Theatre in Tokyo last July, and also ran in Kyoto before ending its run at The Galaxy Theatre last November. A new stage play titled Mankai Stage A3! ~Autumn & Winter 2019~ will run at the Nippon Seinenkan Hall in Tokyo from January 31 to February 11, at the Shimonoseki Community Hall in Yamaguchi on February 23 and 24, at the Umeda Arts Theater in Osaka from February 27 to March 3, and at The Galaxy Theatre in Tokyo from March 15 to March 24.
