Kiyotaka Suzuki (Psycho-Pass 2) is directing the anime at Digital Frontier (The Boy and The Beast, Wolf Children), and Toshiya Ono (Gatchaman Crowds, Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga) is supervising the anime's scripts. Manga creator Oh! great (Tenjo Tenge, Air Gear) designed the original character concepts. Keiichi Satou (The Big O, Ninja Resurrection) is in charge of the original hero design concepts, and Koji Nakakita (Gatchaman Crowds, Jūsō Kikō Dancouga Nova) is in charge of suit and mechanical designs.
The anime will have a different story from an earlier Infini-T Force ~Mirai no Byōsen~ (Infini-T Force: Writing Line of the Future) manga by Ukyō Kodachi (Boruto, Naruto: Gaara Hiden - Sajingensō novel). Udon Entertainment is releasing the manga.
