Uma Musume Pretty Derby English Release Confirmed, To Be Playable at Anime Expo 2024

If you’ve been playing Cygames releases over the years, we’ve had quite a few projects release outside Japan and Asia, but Uma Musume Pretty Derby felt like it was never happening. Characters from Uma Musume Pretty Derby have been in other games released in the West most-recently with the excellent Gold Ship who is in Granblue Fantasy Versus Rising as a navigator. Today, Cygames officially announced that Uma Musume Pretty Derby will be getting an English release, and it will be playable at Anime Expo 2024. If you have no idea what Uma Musume Pretty Derby is, it is a multimedia franchise covering a mobile game, anime, and more from Cygames. The mobile game debuted back in early 2021 in Japan on iOS and Android before seeing a PC release there later in the year. A lot of my friends love the Uma Musume anime and it recently had a movie that a friend of mine watched in Japan. I’ve not seen much of the anime or played the game, but I love the character interactions and designs. Watch the announcement for the English release from the stream below:

Uma Musume Pretty Derby features horse girl recreations of famous race horses, and the brand has even managed doing a collaboration with the newest Top Gun movie in Japan. While an Uma Musume Pretty Derby English release date hasn’t been announced, the tutorial parts will be playable at Anime Expo 2024 in English. You can currently get Uma Musume Pretty Derby for free on the App Store for iOS here and on Google Play for Android here in Japan. I know this might not sound like a big deal to many given how there are loads of popular games in Japan on mobile that don’t see a release internationally, but with Cygames expanding and doing global releases, this is great to see, and I hope the game does well for all involved leading to an Arc System Works developed Uma Musume Pretty Derby fighting game. I’ll be covering any new information we get about the English release for Uma Musume Pretty Derby. Stay tuned for more on that. Check out the official English website here.
