Odex revealed with a poster during the Cosplay Carnival 2019 event in the Philippines on Saturday that its screening of the film in the Philippines will open on May 8.

The film opened in Japan on January 18, and it ranked at #5 in its opening weekend. The film eventually earned a cumulative total of 644,456,900 yen (about US$5.82 million).

The film's story centers on the historical Honnō-ji Incident, where infamous historical warlord Oda Nobunaga met his end after the betrayal of his general Akechi Mitsuhide. With the Touken Danshi's enemies seeking to change history by allowing Nobunaga to live, the characters must ensure that Nobunaga dies, even if there are some among them that were once swords of Nobunaga.

Saiji Yakumo (live-action Mars) directed the film, with a script by Yasuko Kobayashi (Attack on Titan, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Kakegurui). TOHO distributed the film.
