The first commercial for the Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider: Kamen Rider War feat. Super Sentai film aired in Japan. The video features the return of Takeshi Hongo as the original Kamen Rider 1, as well as Kouta Kazuraba (Kamen Rider Gaim), Tsukasa Kadoya (Decade), Takumi Inui (Faiz), Shotaro Hidari (Joker), Haruto Souma (Wizard), and Kaito Kumon (Baron).
The film will feature a total of 30 Riders, including 15 Showa-era Riders led by Kamen Rider 1 and 15 Heisei-era Riders such as those from the ongoing Kamen Rider Gaim television series. The late manga pioneer Shotaro Ishinomori created or co-created Kamen Rider, Himitsu Sentai Go-Ranger (the first Super Sentai/Ranger series), Jinzou Ningen Kikaida, Cyborg 009, and dozens of other projects.
In this film, Fujioka will transform into Kamen Rider 1 for the first time in 38 years. The Tokusatsu Network translated his thoughts on his return from his blog entry.
The film will open on March 29. Participating theaters will begin selling advance tickets with one of two kinds of Super Hero craft paper tape next Saturday.
