Kadokawa began streaming a new promotional video and the second television ad for the Steins;Gate Fuka Ryōiki no Déjà vu film on Friday. The sequel to the 2011 Steins;Gate television anime series will open in at least 30 theaters across Japan on April 20.
Chiyomaru Shikura, the head of the original game's developer 5pb. (MAGES), confirmed in October that the film will have an original story set after the "true end" of the earlier story. He added that since it will not be a compilation of the television series, he could not recommend it to people unfamiliar with Steins;Gate.
Kanji Wakabayashi is directing the film with supervisor Tarou Deji and chief directors Takuya Satō and Hiroshi Hamasaki. Tatsuya Matsubara and Naotaka Hayashi are supervising the story scenario, and Jukki Hanada is writing the screenplay. Kyuuta Sakai is once again adapting huke's original character designs for anime and overseeing the animation process at WHITE FOX. The main cast is also returning for the sequel.
