Arknights: Rise from Ember
StudioYostar Pictures

Arknights (Chinese: 明日方舟; pinyin: Míngrì Fāngzhōu; lit. 'Ark of Tomorrow') is a free-to-play tactical RPG/tower defense mobile game developed by Chinese developer Hypergryph. It was released in China on 1 May 2019, in other countries on 16 January 2020, and in Taiwan on 29 June 2020.[1] Arknights is available on Android and iOS platforms and features gacha game mechanics.

A spin-off game, Arknights: Endfield, was announced for Microsoft Windows and mobile devices in March 2022.[2] An anime television series adaptation produced by Yostar Pictures aired from October to December 2022.[3][4] A second season, titled Arknights: Perish in Frost, aired from October to November 2023. A third season, titled Arknights: Rise from Ember, has been announced.


A game of Arknights
One of the levels of Arknights. In this level, enemies proceed from right to left, and to stop them the player has deployed (from the top) a ranged operator, a melee operator and a healer on the left side of the screen. At the bottom, the remaining deployable operators are displayed.

The core gameplay is that of a tower defense game, with a number of characters ("operators") as towers. Melee operators can be placed on ground tiles and ranged operators on elevated tiles. Melee operators physically block enemies from advancing, and ranged operators deal ranged damage, heal or otherwise support melee operators. Players must place operators on the correct tiles to prevent the enemy from infiltrating the player's base. Once in place, an operator's skills can be activated after a time for special effects, or they can be withdrawn for redeployment after a delay.

Because there is often a limited number of viable solutions, especially at high difficulties, Arknights has also been described as a puzzle game.[5] The gameplay normally does not require quick reaction times (the game is pauseable, and time slows down while commands are issued), but rather on-the-spot tactical analysis and foresight.[6]

As the player progresses through the game, they unlock more stages, operators and resources, and are also introduced to new types of enemies and gameplay mechanics. Levels that have been cleared with a three-star rating can be auto-completed without player input, as the game records the player's actions and replicates them.

The game also has a base-building aspect, which allows players to construct facilities and assign operators to them. This allows players to increase their resources in the manner of an incremental game.[7] It features the usual array of free-to-play, gacha game mechanics, such as daily login rewards and randomized character acquisition through virtual currency which can be obtained by playing the game, through limited-time events, or optional in-app purchases using real currency. Because of the limited resources available (even if real money is spent), another layer of challenge lies in "internalizing multiple complex economic systems"[6] and in prioritizing the right operators to recruit and develop in order to build a capable roster. Arknights players have created a number of internet resources and tools to assist in this effort.[6]

Seasonal gameplay events introduce more complex but optional difficulties and handicaps, such as the game's semi-quarterly Contingency Contract. Players are awarded with resources and medals exclusive to these events. A roguelike game mode, "Integrated Strategies", was added in 2022.[8]


The game is set in the dystopian, 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 infects people with a progressive disease, oripathy, but can also enhance the ability to use "Arts" (magic). Because oripathy is highly infectious and invariably fatal, the infected are shunned and persecuted. In response, some of them form the Reunion movement, a militant group waging war on the despotic governments of Terra.

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, Rhodes Island searches for a cure while defending itself against Reunion and several of the governments of Terra.[7]

Music and voice acting[edit]

Arknights has an eclectic soundtrack drawing on a range of Western and Asian musical genres. Hypergryph has partnered with musical groups across the world to release Arknights-related songs and music videos. These include Steve Aoki ("Last of Me"), Yellow Claw ("End Like This"),[9] Starset ("Infected"),[10] and Low Roar ("Feels", later re-released as "Fade Away").[11] Contributing composers include Go Shiina,[12] Kevin Penkin[13] and Adam Gubman.[14]

The Arknights-related song "Renegade" written by Jason Walsh and performed by Substantial and X.ARI was nominated for "Best Original Song – Video Game" at the 2020 Hollywood Music in Media Awards.[15]

The game's characters are voiced in Japanese. Standard Chinese, regional Sinitic language, Korean, and English voice acting is being incrementally added.[16][17] Individual characters are also voiced in other languages such as Italian, German and Russian, to reflect their origin from the analogous region of the game's world.[18][19]


Pocket Gamer highlighted the game's extensive lore and high production values.[20] Julia Lee of Polygon said that the gacha system is better than in Nintendo's Dragalia Lost, and wrote that "Arknights is the only gacha game I recommend to people" because of its art design, lack of purchase pressure and competition, and limited grind,[5] and Sisi Jiang of Kotaku noted that Arknights is rare among gacha games in that its easily obtainable characters are better in some circumstances than the game's rare, high-powered operators.[21]

The game was nominated for Google Play "Users' Choice Game" at the Best of 2020 awards and for "Best Science Fiction or Fantasy Mobile Game" at the 2020 Dragon Awards.[22] It won an award as one of the Best Innovative Games of 2020.[23]

Anime adaptation[edit]

In December 2020, Hypergryph released a nine-minute Arknights anime video, "Holy Knight Light", on the occasion of the game's first global anniversary. It was made by the global publisher's in-house studio, Yostar Pictures, which previously made anime trailers for in-game events for the global version of the game.[24]

In October 2021, Hypergryph published a teaser trailer for the first season ("Prelude to Dawn") of an anime adaptation of Arknights, also made by Yostar Pictures.[3] The anime is a television series directed by Yuki Watanabe, with Masaki Nishikawa serving as assistant director, and Yuki Hayashi composing the music.[25] Takashi Matsuyama is cast as Ace.[26] The series aired from October 29 to December 17, 2022, on TV Tokyo in Japan.[4][a] Crunchyroll licensed the series.[28] The anime's opening theme song is "Alive" by Reona, and the ending theme song is "BE ME" by Doul. A second season, "Perish in Frost", was announced at the end of the eighth episode and features returning staff and cast.[29] It aired October 7 to November 25, 2023, on TV Tokyo. The opening theme song is "Ache in Pulse" by Myth & Roid, and the ending theme song is "R.I.P" by Reona.[30] A third season, "Rise from Ember", was announced on April 27, 2024.[31]

A spin-off miniseries, Lee's Detective Agency, began airing on Crunchyroll on December 23, 2022.[32]

In the city of Chernobog within the Ursus Empire, a group of operators from the pharmaceutical company Rhodes Island led by their leader, Amiya, awakens and rescues their head strategist, the Doctor, who has gone under cold sleep in an underground facility. While helping the Doctor escape from militants of the Reunion Movement, Amiya and her second in command Dobermann discover the Doctor has amnesia and doesn't remember them. After being rescued by elite operator Ace and his team, the Doctor learns Reunion has taken advantage of a Catastrophe storm heading to Chernobog to start their uprising. With the Doctor's help, Amiya and the Rhodes Islanders rescue a mother and child from being killed by a group of Reunion militants. Despite their help, the mother refuses to follow her rescuers due to Amiya being infected with Oripathy. Amiya explains that Oripathy is the result of being exposed to the valuable Originium mineral and despite evidence that physical contact with an Infected will not transmit the disease, many nations are fearful of the Infected due to misinformation, leading to discrimination against them. Unlike the Reunion Movement who wants to overthrow the world's governments for their harsh treatment against the Infected, Rhodes Island seeks to find a cure for Oripathy and end the discrimination, which the Doctor was researching for a cure before their amnesia. As the Rhodes Islanders head to their rendezvous point to escape, they are unaware that another Reunion unit is watching them.

Crownslayer interrogates the Doctor, but she is forced to retreat when Mephisto, another Reunion captain, confronts her. Mephisto tries to capture the Doctor himself but reinforcements led by Nearl rescues them and the Doctor. They then retreat after being attacked by a sniper named Faust, Mephisto's partner. While resting in a ransacked secret clinic for the Infected, Amiya explains to the Doctor how Originium is the source for Arts, their world's magic and the power source that modernized their world, and while the Infected can uses Arts using the Originium inside their body without a Originium conduit, it is a dangerous thing to do so since this causes their Oripathy to spread much faster and shorten their lifespan. Rhodes Island head to their rendezvous point but are attacked by a large fire Arts cast by the leader of Reunion, Talulah.

However, W claims she just wanted to see if the Doctor is present and takes her leave. Meanwhile, Ace, heavily injured, takes a wounded Guard to safety before heading back out to sacrifice himself to distract the Reunion forces. The Rhodes Island team is extracted and transported back to the Rhodes Island landship, dejected at Ace's death. During the trip, Amiya explains Catastrophes are caused by Originium, and spread large Originium crystals around the land, which is why mobile cities were developed to avoid them. After getting some rest, the Doctor tours the landship before reuniting with Amiya and assuring her that her ideals are not mistaken. Later, Dobermann briefs the Doctor and Amiya that their next destination is the city of Lungmen, which they believe is Reunion's next target.

The two sides spend several minutes negotiating a deal to let Rhodes Island operate in Lungmen in exchange for helping Inspector Ch'en police the Infected citizens. Soon after agreeing to a contract, Ch'en has the Rhodes Island group hunt down a white-haired Ursus girl named Misha.

Ch'en reiterates her mission to get Misha back for the LGD, and Amiya decides to try talking to Misha again. Back at the Reunion camp, Misha decides to take up the mantle of Skullshatterer herself. As the sandstorm passes, the combined LGD and Rhodes Island force slowly push their way through Reunion's forces, but can't locate Misha. Suddenly, Skullshatterer reappears on the battlefield and rallies the Reunion forces. Amiya confronts Skullshatterer by herself and deduces that Misha is wearing his outfit. Before Misha can pull the trigger on Amiya, Ch'en impales Misha on her sword, leading the remaining Reunion forces to surrender. Ch'en yells at Amiya for hesitating and nearly allowing herself to be killed. As Amiya questions whether her ideals still matter in this world, the Doctor encourages her to remain hopeful, as Amiya was able to rescue them with her ideals.
