We learned at the start of May 2020 that the app game King’s Raid is making the leap to anime with a TV series being developed for it. The game itself launched back in 2016 with 13 million downloads over the years so it’s no surprise that there’s an attempt to build a bit more out of it. The latest update for the project has come in with the reveal of two new characters that are original to the series. They’ve revealed Ryōta Suzuki as Rihito and Yoshino Nanjō as Lupine as sibling dark delves for it. Check out their visual below!
The project is planned for a fall debut with a new story that’s directed by Makoto Hoshino based on the series scripts from Megumi Shimizu. Tatsuya Arai is working as character designer and chief animation director with OLM and Sunrise Beyond handling the production.
The cast so far includes the same from the game with:
- Kaito Ishikawa as Kasel
- Ai Kakuma as Frey
- Ari Ozawa as Cleo
- Kengo Kawanishi as Roi
