The anime adaptation first aired in 2017, and a 2nd season of The King’s Avatar is expected to be released this 2019 although, there’s no official details or updates yet about it from its producer Tencent. However, fans are speculating that The King’s Avatar season 2 will be released soon especially with Tencent always dropping the bomb with their releases as they previously announced the premiere of The King’s Avatar (live-action) and Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 2 on the same day as its scheduled release. No one knows, but The King’s Avatar season 2 might or may not follow this pattern but fans sure are excited to see the anime back as soon as possible.

The King’s Avatar Synopsis

In the online game Glory, Xiu YE is regarded as a top-tier pro-player. However, due to a myriad reason, he is kicked out from the team. When Glory launches its tenth server, YE once again throws himself into the game. Back with the memories of his past and an unfulfilled dream, his return along the road to the summit begins!

Nonetheless, for fellow Filipino fans who are craving to see Ye Xiu, it’s a great opportunity to have The King’s Avatar: For the Glory release in Philippines and with this, I am also personally hoping that we’ll have NeZha, and The Legend of Hei getting a PH release too.
