Yostar’s Arknights will be getting an anime adaptation! A teaser video is also released!

A TV anime adaptation inspired from Yostar’s Arknights mobile games is confirmed to be in the making.


A teaser video is revealed to preview the first season of the anime adaptation of Arknights. However, no further information is revealed other than the fact that Yostar Pictures will be animating the first series.

If the anime will follow the world of Arknights in the mobile game then it's best to get some general information from it to have some knowledge about what might happen in the series. For people who are not familiar with the mobile game Arknights,below is the main storyline of the mobile game:


The game is set in the dystopian, post-apocalyptic future setting of the planet Terra, where people exhibit kemonomimi features – characteristics of animals or mythological races. Natural disasters leave behind a valuable mineral, Originium, which enables the use of "Arts'' (magic), and often infects people with a progressive disease, Oripathy. Due to the disease's 100% mortality rate, and its high infectivity at the time of death, hostility towards the Infected became widespread, leading to their mass quarantine and expulsion by governments worldwide, and sparking tensions between the Infected and non-Infected.

The player takes the role of the masked and amnesiac "Doctor", who commands a team of "operators'' of Rhodes Island, a pharmaceutical, medical, and self-defense organization. As Oripathy spreads, the team must search for a cure while defending themselves against threats such as the Reunion Movement, an Infected anarchist military force bent on overthrowing the governments of Terra in revenge for persecuting Oripathy victims.

Arknights is a free-to-play tactical RPG/tower defense mobile game developed by Chinese developer Hypergryph and published by Yostar. It also features gacha game mechanics. It was first released in China in May 2019 but was released in other countries in January 2020 and in Taiwan in June 2020.
