The discovery of black crystal is advancing the technology in the world of Terra. This miracle mineral is usually found in the center of catastrophe caused by the power of the crystal.
Not only affecting the surrounding environment, unknown to the public, this black gem is also the source of an incurable disease. The one who makes a contact for a long period of time is having a high risk of getting infected with Oripathy.
Aside from being incurable, this disease is also highly contagious. That’s why the discrimination against the infected is getting worse over the years.
These exiled individuals are grouped together making an organization called Reunion. This group acts as a rebel faction that destroys cities, further making the world worse than already is.
On the other hand, there is a pharmaceutical company called Rhodes Island that tries to find a cure for Oripathy. The organization consists of both infected and uninfected working together without sheer discrimination.
Regarded as the most advanced in its research in finding an Oripathy cure, they are like a beacon of hope in the disastrous world of Terra. Unfortunately, their research progress halts because their key figure, the doctor, is having amnesia.
Can they find a way to recover the doctor’s memory and find a cure for Oripathy?
Arknights is a tactical tower defense game launched on May 1, 2019, in China. Later, they also expand to the global server on January 16, 2022. It is available on Android and iOS platforms and features gacha game mechanics.
The popularity of the game is still going strong since the first day of launch. It is also supported by the fact that the game never earns less than two million dollars in revenue each month across servers.
Reportedly, Arknights raked up to 510 million in revenue in 2020. A year later, they had 455 million USD, and they earn about 400 million USD in 2022. In terms of game revenue, they earn lower and lower by year but they can still stand as one giant of mobile gacha games.
As for the anime, they sold its Blu-Ray version 5163 copies in its first 5 days, grossing 114 million yen (855 thousand USD) in sales. This may be one factor that this anime will get the second season.
There is a spin-off game, Arknights: Endfield, which is still under construction for PC and mobile. The announcement was made in March 2022. Yet, no new information has been released since.
