Arknights Mobile Game Is Getting An Anime Adaption


‘Arknights’ is a free-to-play mobile strategy game that involves tower defense and takes place in a dystopian future. The game’s popularity led to it being nominated for “Users’ Choice Game” and winning the “Best Innovative Games of 2020″ at the Google Play Awards.
Yostar Pictures recently announced that they are adapting the RPG into an anime subtitled “Prelude to the Dawn” which explores the world of the game. No word yet on the plot or if the protagonist of the show will be the same as the game.
The Funimation website explained, “Arknights fans, you’ve just made the ultimate pull—a TV anime adaptation of the game, subtitled “Prelude to the Dawn,” has been announced!” They continue, “Yostar Pictures, who’ve animated several promos for the game (example below) and the AzurLane: Slow Ahead! spin-off anime, is in charge of production. No other details were revealed.”
Check out the teaser below:

Wikipedia explains the game’s premise, “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.”
They add, “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.”
