Fight off the Yōkai Army with MegaHouse's 1/1-scale replica of the X Gun from the 3DCG Gantz:O film. That is, as long as you have the cash to afford it.

The replica is part of the company's Master Product line. It measures 250mm (9.8in) long and weighs approximately 700g (1.5lbs). When the gun's trigger is pulled it will play one of 30 different sounds, activate the gun's LED lights, and opens up the muzzle. The rear panel screen also lights up.

Pre-orders open on Friday for 39,960 yen (US$383.50) and orders are expected to ship in March 2017.

The film will open in Japan on October 14, but first premiered at the 73rd Venice Film Festival. The Japanese screenings will feature 4DX and MX4D screenings alongside conventional screenings.

Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, Asura) is the chief director for the film, and Yasushi Kawamura (Appleseed: Ex Machina CGI director) is directing the film. Tsutomu Kuroiwa (One Piece Film Gold script) is writing the screenplay, Yoshihiro Ike (Karas, Tiger & Bunny, The Empire of Corpses) is composing the music, and Digital Frontier is handling production.

The original manga followed a young Tokyo man named Kei who is reanimated after a deadly subway accident. Kei and other resurrected people go on violent, seemingly endless missions at the behest of an unseen host. The GANTZ:O film depicts the Osaka arc in which the Tokyo and Osaka mission teams take on the subjugation of the Yōkai Army.
