Super Animal Royale in China will discontinue

A Chinese mobile game based on Super Animal Royale will discontinue: a bittersweet announcement as they hit their first birthday Friday (May 13).

The game, in China’s most popular gaming format – on mobile (手游) – will stop updating soon.

According to Feihu (肥狐), a well-known personality of Super Animal Royale China, the COVID-19 pandemic worsened operational problems. Income dropped and staff are being laid off.

However, the mobile game’s server will still be online – the game won’t be updated. As of May 20, it still can be downloaded.

Emotions flew strongly among furries and non-furries alike – the top-down shooter game is very popular among Chinese furries.

The game in China is jointly operated by gaming companies Pixile Studios and iDreamSky.

The Chinese mobile game for Super Animal Royale is called 小动物之星 (literal: Little Animal Star).

Both the global version (Steam) and the mobile version (China) are based on the same game, but are independent of each other.

China players mostly use the mobile version’s name to refer to both game platforms. Global players call the mobile game version “Super Animal Royale Chinese edition”.

The Chinese game version uses the same English name as the global version.

To distinguish both editions in English, we will address the Chinese mobile game as “Super Animal Royale China”. Our Chinese language report will reflect this.

《超级动物大逃杀》的中国版将停止更新

基于《超级动物大逃杀》的中国创手游《小动物之星》将停止更新。他们在周五(5月13日)迎来一岁生日时,宣布了一个苦乐参半的消息。

这款以中国国内最流行的“手游”形式创造的游戏——将很快停止更新。

据《小动物之星》的知名人士肥狐说,疫情使运营问题给恶化了。收入开始下降、员工被裁减。

然而,手机游戏的服务器仍将在线——游戏不会被更新。截至5月20日,仍然可以下载。

兽圈内外人士的情绪都很激动——这个自上而下的射击游戏在中国兽圈中非常受欢迎。

该游戏的中国版是由游戏公司Pixile Studios和创梦天地(iDreamSky)联合运营。

《小动物之星》和《超级动物大逃杀》都基于同一个游戏,但相互独立。

中国玩家大多使用 “小动物之星” 称呼《超级动物大逃杀》的两个游戏平台。全球玩家称呼《小动物之星》为 “超级动物大逃杀中国版”。

《小动物之星》和《超级动物大逃杀》都用相同的英文名称。

为了在英语报道中区分这两个版本,我们将把中国那边的手机游戏称为 “超级动物大逃杀中国版”。我们的中文报道将反映这一点。
