Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is heading back to the big screen sometime this year with a film titled Unato Decisive Battle!
Set in a post-apocalyptic steampunk world in which a mysterious virus creates zombie-like creatures known as “Kabaneri”, the series was first aired as part of Fuji TV’s Noitamina block in 2016 and received a two compilation films in 2016 and 2017. The new movie will pick up from the end of the TV anime.
The creative team will remain largely the same as the TV series with Araki Tetsurou directing, Mikimoto Haruhiko handling character design, and Sawano Hiroyuki composing the score. Wit Studio is also returning to animate the film. Meanwhile, Araki will be in charge of scripts in place of Okouchi Ichirou, who served as screenwriter for the TV anime.
In summer 2018, DMM Games will also release a smartphone game based on the series titled Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: Revolt.
