Alright, despite of having few available information about Battle through the Heavens – Song of Desert, we’re quite fortunate to have a glimpse of it through a series of promotional videos as follows:
The hit Chinese 3DCG anime premiered on 2017 with its first season running for a total of 14 episodes (a two-episode OVA included) and followed by a second season on 2018. The anime is inspired of a popular Chinese web novel of the same title detailing the adventure of Xiao Yan. I’ll say this is a pretty cliche yet very interesting story to follow, I have actually finished the original novel and I could say it’s pretty satisfying despite of its repetitive elements which could be seen in other shounen anime too.
One more thing, it’s actually an isekai, and the second installment of a trilogy series with the first being Martial Universe (currently airing its first anime adaptation) and the last one is The Great Ruler.
Battle through the Heavens Synopsis
In a land where no magic is present. A land where the strong make the rules and weak have to obey. A land filled with alluring treasures and beauty, yet also filled with unforeseen danger. Three years ago, Xiao Yan, who had shown talents none had seen in decades, suddenly lost everything. His powers, his reputation, and his promise to his mother. What sorcery has caused him to lose all of his powers? And why has his fiancee suddenly shown up? (Source: wuxiaworld.com)

Based on what I have read, we may have a flashback on The Ice Emperor youthful days but I am not sure about that yet. However, based on the trailer it seems that it's actually Hai Bo Dong in his younger years. But I have also read that Xiao Yan character design is changing every season and it's quite peculiar though since it doesn't match his age on the novel.

Hi @Ndimitechx. Although there is no specific date yet for Wu Geng Ji season 3, I believe it shall be release on fall this year.
Can you please tell me when will be Wu Geng Ji ( The Legend and Hero will be release or start airing?
Is the Song of Desert definitely focused on Xiao Yan? It seems a little odd that the main character looks different from previous Xiao Yan's even accounting for aging–after all this had to occur before 3 Year Agreement if it is Xiao Yan. More curiously is that the main guy seems to display countless high level ice abilities, which does not seem to be Xiao Yan's MO. Is this younger Hai Bo Dong & possible adventure leading to his becoming desert hermit? Thanks for the info
How did Xiao Yan get so much older looking/sounding now compared to Season 2? He was supposed to be 16 or 17 at this point before he gets the Green Lotus Flame! Very much anticipating this little appetizer before Season 3!
