Sega initially revealed Kemono Friends 3 as a mobile game in 2019. The game launched on Android and iOS devices in the same year. In 2020, the company released the title on DMM Games, which also makes it playable on PCs.

Appirits noted that the PS4 and PS5 releases of Kemono Friends 3 are completely different from the mobile and PC versions. There is no save transfer feature from the mobile version, so all players on the PlayStation release will start fresh. In-game events and campaigns will also run separately between the PlayStation and mobile versions.

Kemono Friends 3 is the second series game to appear on consoles after Kemono Friends Picross on Nintendo Switch. The franchise originated from a mobile game that Nexon launched in 2015. All prior entries before Kemono Friends 3 and the Picross game were available exclusively on mobile devices. However, Kemono Friends Picross remains the only game that is available worldwide in English. The PlayStation Store page noted that Kemono Friends 3 only supports the Japanese language.

Kemono Friends 3 is available on PS4, PS5, Android, iOS, and PC via DMM Games in Japan.
