DMM’s mobile personified sword breeding game Touken Ranbu (刀剣乱舞) has ventured into the live-action movie business! The spin-off, Touken Ranbu: The Movie (映画刀剣乱舞), will open in 2019.
The movie is based on the stage play spin-off which has been running since 2016, but the story will be one that has never been heard before. Many of the recurring stage actors will return to their usual roles. Saiji Yakumo (Mars: Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru) and Yasuko Kobayashi (Kamen Rider) have been assigned to be the director and the screenwriter respectively.
