Bushiroad previously announced a mobile game based on Kemomo Friends (けものフレンズ). The title called Kemono Friends Pavilion (けものフレンズぱびりおん) will be released this year.

Beside a mobile game, a mobile alarm app called Kemono Friends Alarm (けものフレンズあらーむ) will also be launched by the same developer in this Summer. It will contain collectible recordings from characters of the franchise.

Originally a mobile RPG produced by Nexon, Kemono Friends is created by Keroro Gunso’s manga artist Mine Yoshizaki (吉崎 観音). The game was however terminated in December 2016 after just a few months of service. The story revolves around Japari Park, a zoo where wild animals worldwide reside. One day, the animals become personified due to the appearance of a mysterious substance. Season two of the anime was confirmed recently.

Gravity inked a deal with Ragnarok Mobile developer Shanghai Dream Network Technology to launch the game worldwide. Shanghai Dream is a Chinese gaming company that licensed the Ragnarok Online franchise from Gravity then made a mobile version of it and it looks like Gravity is turning around and licensing it to bring the game to players outside of China.

Gravity announced plans to first release the game in Taiwan and Hong Kong sometime this year, followed by South Korea and Southeast Asia. While no Western release has yet to be confirmed, a Southeast Asian version means it'll be available in English. The Chinese version of the game remains quite popular and will be gettin ga bit update called Episode 2.0 which adds new areas and 2 new classes (monk / Crusaders), as well as a new pet system.

Those who want to play Ragnarok Mobile right now can do so, but the game is naively in Chinese. There is an unofficial English patch though.

Pokemon GO Players Beat Magikarp Raid Using Only Magikarp

Behold, the most pathetic battle possible in Pokemon GO.

Magikarp, as many of you know, cannot actually attack in Pokemon GO: It only has Splash, which is useless, and Struggle, which is... slightly less useless, but still kinda futile. You wouldn't want to bring a Magikarp into a raid battle, which are supposed to be Pokemon GO's toughest challenges.

Hilariously, Pokemon GO has also made Magikarp into a low-tier raid boss. Normally, anyone taking on a Magikarp raid just beats a defenseless fish up. It's borderline bullying, because Magikarp can't really do much back. But here is what happens if you take a bunch of Magikarp to fight a giant Magikarp, courtesy of zecmo. Skip to around the 2:24 mark if you just want to see the battle:

At first, the players don't even know if winning the battle is possible. "Are we going to time out?" one fan asks. "You can just keep struggling!" another responds. "Struggle for life! Nonstop struggle!" A…

NieR’s 2B, A2, 9S, Emil, Beauvoir (amusement park boss), as well as weapons and gears will be available on the event map, via medal exchange and via gacha.

A preview video of 2B’s story in SINoALICE has been released. The event scenario is written by the creator of both games, Yoko Taro (橫尾太郎). It will also be accompanied by NieR’s original scores.

“Without noticing my distorted feeling, what did 9S dream about? I asked him on purpose.
It seems like my body signaled ‘almost begins’ when it went through memory check.
Dream…it must be a dream.
Reality and virtuality combined – this is a world of scream and pain.”

Besides, SINoALICE has entered the second phase today (2nd August). One of the most important updates in this phase is the colosse…
