Kitchen

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

It’s late at night, and the kitchen is quiet.

Even at night, the kitchen is filled with food. 🍰 Most kitchens are empty at night. This can’t be the kitchen for anyone ordinary.

It reminds me of the Executioner’s Kitchen theme that we had a couple of seasons ago.

King

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

It didn’t take long before the King walks in — in his sleep robe and slippers, carrying a candle, tip-toeing around the kitchen. What is the King doing in the kitchen in the middle of the night? 🤔

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

… looking for food apparently. 🧀

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

… He just can’t have enough of it. 🥖

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

I guess the King is really hungry. He’s stuffing food inside his mouth and still wants more! 🍏

Goblet

He notices a shiny goblet at the top of the shelf and reaches out for it. 🏆

But wait… it’s not actually a Goblet, it is a lever of sorts! 😮

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

Something rumbles on the floor… 😲

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The floors comes apart and reveals a secret compartment in the form of a big hole and the King falls into it! 💨

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The King was knocked out during the fall, but he’s slowly waking up. 😵

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

Confused about where he is, he looks around but can’t figure out where he is. 🥴

Hall

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

Then he realizes that he is in a big hall. 😊

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

A very big, really majestic, and absolutely epic hall! 😱

Book

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

At the center of the Hall is a pedestal. On top of it, a magical book with a shiny cover. ✨

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The King walks towards the book to figure out what it is. 🕵️‍♂️

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The book looks mysterious. 📘

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

He flips through the pages to figure it out. 🔎

Light

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

Suddenly, a mysterous light in the shades of rainbow appears from the far side of the hall. It’s pretty and dreamy. 🌈

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

Startled, the King decides to look closer. 👀

Stained Glass Windows

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The light appears to be coming from some huge stained glass windows at the end of the hall. These ornate glass panels depict larger-than-life figures.

The first window to the left shows a long-haired warrior holding a giant sword, and is standing on top of a pile of Gold. 🗡

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The window in the middle is a skeleton figure surrounded by skulls. 💀 This figure wears a crown just like the King’s. 👑 Is he a king also? 🤔

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The window on the right is a female figure holding a crossbow. 🏹 She has pink hair just like the Archers in his Kingdom, and she also wears a crown. 👑 Is she a queen? 🤨

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

What could this be? What are these figures? Why are they here? How do these stained glass windows relate to the book? 😱

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The King decides to look for answers in the mysterious book. He finds a separate page stuck in the middle it. 🧐

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

He stares at the page intently. 😳

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

It looks like a map of some sorts, with symbols that appear to correspond to the figures on the stained glass windows. After some time, he has an a-ha moment and figures out what it is! 💡

What has he figured out? What is this map? What secrets has the King discovered?

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

Satisfied that he has the answer, he grabs the page and runs out of the hall, carrying the map with him. 🗺

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

He seems extremely happy with his new discovery. 😄

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

The animation ends with a call-to-action asking you to “get ready for King Level 14.”

What does this mean to you? What do those large window figures and the map have to do with King Level 14?! 🤨

Thoughts

Clash Royale has always had incredible animations to go with their marketing materials, but this sneak peek animation is beyond amazing.

The 3D models are gorgeous. The lighting designs are spectacular. The scenes are filled with subtle environmental effects that set the mood for the shots. The attention to detail in all of the textures are meticulous. Flow in an epic soundtrack and nice character animations, then pack everything together into a 2-minute short and you know that this upcoming update is going to be really important and significant. Why else would you create such a masterpiece otherwise?

Needless to say, I’m very impressed! 😌 The art and animation team has absolutely outdone themselves in this. I’m also looking forward to tell you all about the update in a future post. 😇

Clash Royale 2021 Major Update Sneak Peek Animation

Before I end this, can we take a moment to talk about those Baby Dragon (BBD) slippers? 😍 I’ve had my eyes on them ever since they showed up in a Clash Royale illustration (artist sketch). This robe with BBD prints combined with the BBD slippers is a killer combo that I would proudly wear around my house!

Please make these available as merchs or swags!!! 🙏
