The official website for the upcoming K film opened on Tuesday, and revealed that the official title of the film will be K: Missing Kings. The site debuted a new official key visual (seen above) which assembles all the characters with the tagline, "Bonds, once again."

The website also lists the story:

The “Academy Island Incident” in which all four “kings” cross paths... Since then, Silver Clansmen Kuroh Yatogami and Neko have been searching for their master, Shiro. Without finding any clues to Shiro's whereabouts, the two became disheartened. However, one day, they see HOMRA members Rikio Kamamoto and Anna Kushina being chased by someone.

The Animate store chain's flyer Charaby Extra has a special "K Edition" starting on Tuesday. Animate stores will also have a cross-country campaign linked to the film's story. Similar to a countdown before the television anime, the anime's website and Animate stores will count down 100 days to the film's opening with regularly updated visuals. Animate, Shosen, and MOVIC sites will offer three consecutive exclusive posters with advance ticket sales, starting with the poster shown below.

The movie sequel of GoRA Project and GoHands' K television anime will premiere on July 12.

The television anime premiered in 2012, and Viz Media streamed it in North America as it aired. An English dub streamed on Viz's Neon Alley service. Viz has released the series on Blu-ray and DVD.
