CAAnimation and DMM Game previously said that DMM Games would develop the game for the project. CAAnimation held auditions for voice actors for the project.

CyberAgent had previously announced that CAAnimation's first project would be a multimedia project planned for launch this year with anime, video games, music, and several other forms of entertainment. CAAnimation was partnering with video content company Avex Pictures, music creator group Elements Garden (Uta no Prince Sama, Senki Zesshō Symphogear franchises), anime studio Doga Kobo (Himouto! Umaruchan, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, The Helpful Fox Senko-san), and game developer Wonder Planet (Jump Puchi Heroes, Crash Fever smartphone games) for the project.

CyberAgent founded the CAAnimation in October 2018. CAAnimation focuses on producing original anime, as well as producing possible game adaptations (developed by other CyberAgent subsidiary companies) of those original anime projects. The company will coordinate with AbemaTV for its original anime content.

CyberAgent and Cygames established the CA-Cygames Anime Fund in June 2017. The fund has allowed both companies to invest in anime production committees, acquire streaming rights, and game adaptation rights.
