posted on by Egan Loo
The official Twitter accounts for the Arknights smartphone game announced on Sunday that the game is inspiring an animated television series. Season 1 "Prelude to Dawn" is already in production at Yostar Pictures.
Chinese developers Studio Montagne and Hypergryph released the game in China in May 2019, and then Yostar launched the game worldwide in January 2020. The game already inspired animated net videos since 2019 and a nine-minute animated "Holy Knight Light" short last December to mark the game's first anniversary:
Yostar founded the Yostar Pictures animation studio in 2020. Yostar CEO Hengda Lee is representative director of Yostar Pictures. Arch, a Tokyo-based company that assisted with the production of the Promare anime film, took part in establishing the studio, and is managing the studio.
