Fans have eagerly been awaiting the release of No Game No Life Season 2 ever since No Game No Life Season 1 ended in June 2014.
No Game No Life Season 2 Storyline
The first season of No Game No life ended with the siblings realizing that the key is for the gamers to play and fight together and for each other and not against one another. The episode ends with Kurami and Fii’s departure and the accidental summoning of the Old Deus through the Shrine Priestess by Sora. No Game No Life Season 2 will probably continue the battle from where Season 1 left it.
The fight is not over and it remains to be seen which gamer will dethrone the god of games to take his place as the greatest in the game world. The fate of the siblings, Sora and Shiro, and that of the players remains to be seen. This is expected to form the crux of the plot of No Game No Life Season 2.
No Game No Life Season 2 Release Date
No Game No Life Season 2 is expected to see a release either in 2022 or a year later. So far, neither the creators nor the channel has made any official announcements or statements about the release date of No Game No Life Season 2. However, safe to say, No Game No Life Season 2 is for sure happening.
There are several reasons for this. To verify the future fate of any television series, it is helpful to look at the ratings the previous seasons have garnered, how much revenue the show has generated for the creators, and how much source material from the manga is left to be adapted. Upon its release in Japan, each of the six disks of No Game No Life sold over 9,000 copies and an additional 1,000 copies sold out when the series was released in BD-Box.
These are enough sales to ensure that fans will get to see more seasons of the series. Revenue-wise, the No Game No Life merchandise has managed to sell quite well and new figures are still being introduced to the line in 2020.
This could only happen if fans were still curious about the series and generating demand. The movie adaptation of the series titled, No Game No Life: Zero, made around $6.5 million at the box office and earned the creators additional profit when 40,000 of its Blu-Ray copies got sold in Japan.
