So far, the Aniplex Online storefront does not contain any Palworld goods. But they will appear in time. You can follow the official Palworld X (Twitter) account so that you don’t miss it.

According to the description on the Palworld Entertainment website, Sony Music Entertainment and Aniplex will focus on expanding the IP and focus on various tasks in licensing. This will likely mean more collaborations down the line between Palworld and other companies or IPs.

As for Palworld, it is an online survival game that came out in early access in January 2024 and saw over 5 million downloads by the end of the month. A huge part of the game also focuses on capturing Pals, which you can use for various survival tasks in the world. Even before it came out, Palworld has had its share of controversies, between the depiction of animal cruelty and its plagiarism of Pokemon designs or assets. Despite these issues, its high sales and concurrent players make it one of the more successful PC games in recent years.

Palworld is readily available on the Windows PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One. It’s still in early access and a macOS version will come out some time in 2024.
