Information on Konomi Takeshi's matchmaking original story “The New Prince of Tennis: Hyoutei vs. Rikkai – Game of Future”, such as the teaser visual and summary, has been revealed.
The anime production of “The New Prince of Tennis: Hyoutei vs. Rikkai – Game of Future” was announced on May 2020 and it is one of the works that was created to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the anime “The Prince of Tennis” in 2021.
This work will depict the exhibition match of Hyoutei and Rikkai after the U-17W tournament has ended.
The tennis club at Hyoutei consists mainly of the new captain Hiyoshi,
and the 2nd year students such as Ootori and Kabaji.
The Atobe Groups have a newly built tennis court at Shonan and Atobe pointed out the rival school that is the most suitable for the exhibition match. That rival school is… Rikkai University Junior High School.
Yukimura and the others accepted the exhibition match as they hope that Kirihara and the new generation of Rikkai will inherit the thoughts of facing the challengers with a new determination instead of holding the hardship faced during the national tournaments and as the champions.
The match between Hyoutei and Rikkai didn't happen in the previous tournaments. The last match of junior high school for the 3rd years and the 2nd years, who are the bearer of the future. The dream with those intertwined thoughts has begun…!!
The teaser visual depicts the strong gaze of Hyoutei's Atobe Keigo (voice by Suwabe Junichi) and Rikkai's Yukimura Seiichi (voice by Nagai Sachiko) with the captions “I'll crush you, prodigy” “Let's have fun, King”.
“The New Prince of Tennis: Hyoutei vs. Rikkai – Game of Future” will be released in early spring 2021 and it will consist of two parts.
