Neko Works Reveals Nekopara TV Anime Details, Nekopara Vol. 4 Game Title (Updated)

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

Neko Works announced on Friday that it is developing a new game in its Nekopara game franchise titled Nekopara Vol. 4: Neko to Patisserie no Noel.

Additionally, the website for the game franchise's anime adaptation announced the show's staff and cast, and also revealed a visual and teaser video on Saturday.

Yasutaka Yamamoto (Hinomaru Sumo, Valkyria Chronicles, Actually, I Am…) is directing the anime at Felix Film. Go Zappa (We Never Learn: BOKUBEN, Blend S) is the series editor, Yuichi Hirano (Alderamin on the Sky) is the character designer, and Akiyuki Tateyama (Kemono Friends, Laid-Back Camp) is the music producer.

The anime stars:

The anime's first episode will premiere at Anime Expo on July 6.

Sekai Project released the Nekopara Vol. 1 visual novel on PC via Steam in December 2014. The company also released the Nekopara Vol. 0 fandisc prequel on PC in August 2015, and the Nekopara Vol. 2 game in February 2016. Neko Works released Nekopara Vol. 3 in Japan in May 2017, and Sekai Project released the game on Steam in English on the same day.

The three games have since been ported to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Sekai Project previously ran a Kickstarter campaign in 2017 to fund an original video anime (OVA) based on the game franchise. The OVA launched on Steam in December 2017. The Kickstarter campaign also funded a 12-minute OVA of the prequel game as a stretch goal.

Update: Avex Pictures is streaming the same video with English text.
