Connecting the Princess! Re:Dive Season 3 anime TV series could continue the story based on the popular Cygames video game series.
When the last episode of the second season was released in March 2022, the official social media accounts simply asked fans to continue to support the series. chief executive Takaomi Kanasaki tweeted his thanks to the production team.
“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the staff for participating in Priconne! The enthusiasm of everyone in every section to make it better and more fun has resulted in a beautiful piece of art. I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with them on this animation. Thank you very much!”
There are several reasons to believe that Princess Connect! Season 3 could be given the green light for production later in 2022. But that’s assuming the overall series doesn’t continue to suffer from a decline in popularity.
Princess Connect! Re:Dive Volume 1 of the first season Blu-Ray boxset sold 28,518 disc copies in its first week. In September 2020, it was announced that Volume 2 sold 21,545 copies in its first week.
It is possible that this amazing success could be repeated in Season 2. According to the official website, BD Volume 1 of Season 2 will be released on March 22, 2022, S2 Volume 2 on April 19, 2022 and S2 Volume 3 on May 17. 2022.
The success of the first season’s Blu-Ray sales is due in part to Princess Connect! Re game players who buy the discs for the in-game bonuses. And it’s possible that the anime’s second season will give a much-needed boost to the game in 2022, which slowly lost steam over time.
Connecting the Princess! The Re game app is still in the top 150 free to play RPG games worldwide. According to Sensor towerIn April 2021, the app generated $400,000 USD in monthly revenue, but by the end of 2021, the estimated monthly revenue had fallen to $200,000 (November 2021) and $300,000 (December 2021).
To put that number into perspective, Cygames generated $82 million in revenue from the game in the first half of 2020, when the first anime season premiered. In December 2021, Cygames generated $39 million in revenue from all of its games, but the Umamusume: Pretty Derby game app was responsible for $32 million of that total (Cygames Pictures partnered with Studio Kai to create Uma Musume: Pretty Derby Season 2). to create).
Connecting the Princess! Re app was still Cygames’ third most downloaded game in December 2021, but Princess Connect! Re followed Cygames’ other games when it came to revenue. But Cygames has made it clear in the past that the anime products can stand on their own.
In May 2021, Cygames Pictures director Nobuhiro Takenaka spoke about how anime had become important at Cygames, which typically focuses on iPhone/Android game apps.
“In the past, the animation department was not that important to the head office. Instead, the focus was on the video game production division. Recently, however, the animation department has gained more confidence from the managers,” said Takenaka. “Still, please don’t put video game production aside. That’s because I want us to keep producing more seasons of the anime as long as the game continues. I want to be able to live up to the expectations of fans of the franchise.”
Cygames certainly has a lot of room for growth. According to Company of appsThe top 10 mobile games in 2021 for global revenue were PUBG Mobile ($2.8 billion), Honoro Kings ($2.8 billion), Genshin Impact ($1.8 billion), Roblox ($1.3 billion), Coin Master ($1.3 billion), Pokemon GO ($1.2 billion), Candy Crush Saga ($1.2 billion), and Garena Free Fire ($1.1 billion).

The Priconne anime television series is produced by Cygames Pictures, which also animated the anime Mysteria Friends 2019 and the anime Blade Runner 2017: Black Out 2022. Cygames Pictures has not announced any future projects yet.
The project is headed by chief director Takaomi Kanasaki of KonoSuba anime fame. Kanasaki will also oversee series composition and scripting. It is possible that the director will be busy making the KonoSuba season 3 anime in 2022, as a new KonoSuba anime project was previously announced in 2021.

Princess Connect! Season 3 release date predictions
As of the last update, Cygames Pictures or any other company involved in the production of the anime has the Princess Connect! Re:Dive Season 3 release date. Nor has the production of another Priconne sequel been announced.
Once the news is officially confirmed, this article will be updated with the relevant information.
In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when and whether the Princess Connect! Re:Dive Season 3 release date will be in the future.
The second season’s turnaround time can be used as a benchmark for Priconne Season 3. Notably, the news about the second season’s production was leaked ahead of time. Anime news leaks even claimed that the second season would be released in April 2021.
So what happened; were the newscasters wrong? Even if they had started early production in Spring 2020, Cygames Pictures would have been delayed in their work due to the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus pandemic, just as the entire anime industry was hit by COVID-19. . Japan suffered from multiple waves of the deadly virus and many anime TV series and movies were pushed back to 2022.
Fortunately, in 2022, the pandemic started to pass and become endemic. As such, large scale delays in production schedules shouldn’t be such a big factor in the anime industry. In general, many Japanese animation studios will take six to nine months to animate a single cour of an anime season once all pre-production is done.
We can safely assume that Cygames will wait to make the production decision until after season 2 BD sales in Japan are announced at the end of March 2022. They will also monitor the corresponding increase in app revenue/downloads. Assuming all goes well, pre-production for the third season could begin in late 2022.
That’s why the Princess Connect! The season 3 release date could be 2024 at the earliest.
