The official website for City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes, the new anime film adaptation of Tsukasa Hojo's City Hunter manga, revealed on Tuesday that the film will have 4DX screenings in Japan beginning on March 1. In addition, the website revealed that the film will get screenings with Japanese subtitles for people with hearing impairments, and a special set of five trading cards will be the theatergoer bonus from February 23 to March 1.

The film opened in Japan on February 8 in 251 theaters. The film sold 180,000 tickets to earn 257 million yen (about US$2.32 million) and rank #4 in its opening weekend.

Director Kenji Kodama, who has directed most of the previous City Hunter anime, returned as the chief director. Yoichi Kato (Aikatsu!, Yo-kai Watch, Monster Strike the Animation) penned the script. Kumiko Takahashi (Birdy the Mighty, Card Captor Sakura) was the character designer and Taku Iwasaki (Gurren Lagann, Gatchaman Crowds) composed the music. Sunrise animated the film. TM Network's song "Get Wild," the ending theme song for the first City Hunter television anime, was also the ending song for the film.

The new film moves the setting to present-day Shinjuku.
