Why Only these emojis?

These emoji’s updates continue the recent tradition of Apple sharing a 3D model of both Animoji and the image used in the emoji font by Apple.

Last Year in March, Lion ?, Skull ?, Bear ?, and Dragon Face ?were all introduced as Animoji, and their emoji renderings were also tweaked a little in the same release.
