Arknights is an upcoming TV anime for a transmedia project. There’s no release date, but the in-game event “Near Light” is tomorrow (28th).
The animal-eared warriors of Rhodes Island are at the dawn of a battle. The website for the Arknights franchise is in English and hefty.
The game itself is a tower defence one with characters/operators as the so-called towers to protect.
Arknights is set on a dystopian and post-apocalyptic planet called Terra, where people have animal and mythological features and natural disasters fuel an infectious disease. That disease, which is 100% fatal, also allows those suffering from it to use magic.
There’s even an animation for the mobile game.
There’s more planned if a mobile game and anime aren’t enough. A spin-off called Arknights: Endfield is developing and expanding the franchise to PC and will be on mobile.
It’s a Chinse game, made initially by Studio Montagne and Hypergryph, with Yostar moving in for 2020.
