The official Arknights YouTube channel has released a “2024 Special Commemorative Animation PV” providing two minutes of gorgeous animation and visuals.

The trailer is storyboarded and directed by Hiromatsu Shu, who previously worked on Fate/Grand Order‘s Memorial Movie 2023, the fifth ending animation of the Chainsaw Man anime and the opening sequence for Dawang Raoming. Bowen Liang (Ambience Synesthesia 2024 RES:Souvenance Preview Trailer, F/GO Memorial Movie 2023, CSM ED 5) is the compositing director, and Big Firebird Cultural Media Co., Ltd is the animation production studio.

The Arknights free-to-play tower defense gacha game first launched in China in 2019 and was released worldwide in 2020. The Hypergryph title is available on iOS and Android.

Play Store describes the game as:

Take on the role of a key member of Rhodes Island, a pharmaceutical company that fights both a deadly infection and the unrest it leaves in its wake. Together with your leader Amiya, you’ll recruit Operators, train them, then assign them to various operations to protect the innocent and resist those who would thrust the world into turmoil.

Your tactics will determine the future of Rhodes Island. Fight for the Dawn!

The 2024 Special Commemorative Animation PV was released shortly after the announcement of the Arknights [Rise from Ember] TV anime.
