In fact, fans are rejoicing and everybody had been hyped since a concept trailer for The King’s Avatar season 2 had been revealed highlighting explosive action scenes from Lord Grim. We also had a glimpse at some characters appearing in the story that had been previously introduced such as Chen Guo, Tang Rou, Han Wenqing, Wang Jiexi, Blue River, Huang Shaotian, and of course Ye Xiu. In addition, we will get to know more characters from the novel getting introduced this time such as those from Glory Professional Alliance and its respective accounts that I had previously discussed in the following posts:

The teaser visual for The King’s Avatar 2 features Ye Xiu, Happy Internet Cafe’s ladies Chen Guo and Tang Rou, Han Wenqing and Sun Xiang in the background, and other members of the future Team Happy: Bao Rongxing (Steamed Bun Invasion), Mo Fan (Deception), Qiao Yifan (One-inched Ash), Luo Ji (Concealed Light), An Wenyi (Little Cold Hands), and Blue Rain’s former team captain Wei Chen (Windward Formation). For novel readers, it may be familiar that these were the characters who stand and fight alongside Ye Xiu during the Challenger League and the 10th season of the alliance which is I believe will be shown too in the approaching The King’s Avatar live-action drama starring Chinese superstar Yang Yang.
For details about the live-action adaptation, you may check the following posts that I had previously written:
The King’s Avatar simply dropped so many big surprises yesterday as it also unveiled the poster for its upcoming movie adaptation “The King’s Avatar: For the Glory” which is estimated to be released on August 2019.

These chapters of The King’s Avatar – The Summit of Glory will revolve around the early generations of Glory’s professional players including Ye Xiu, Han Wenqing, Sun Zheping, Zhang Jiale, Wu Xuefeng, Lin Jie, Su Muqiu, and Wei Chen. Furthermore, we may also get the chance to see the beginning of the Golden Generation players such as Su Mucheng, Huang Shaotian, Yu Wenzhou, Zhang Xinjie, etc will be introduced at the end of the prequel chapters. I am also glad that the birth of the magician playstyle by Wang Jiexi is also included in this story.
