The website also unveiled new cast members on Friday:

Actor Tsutomu Yamazaki as the polar bear

Comedian trio Dachō Club members Jimon Terakado, Katsuhiro Higo, and Ryūhei Ueshima as the kokeshi dolls

Comedian Tommies Masa as the Daruma

Voice actresses Etsuko Kozakura (Yōkai Watch's Jibanyan, Sgt. Frog's Tamama) and Wasabi Mizuta (Doraemon's titular character, Yes! Precure 5 GoGo!'s Merupo) as the Russian nesting dolls

The story of the original horror-survival manga begins when strange and frightening things start happening at Shun Takahata's high school. After his teacher is killed, he and his classmates must play horrifying games in order to avoid death. The film will also feature two new "games" not featured in the original work: The fifth game, "I hate liars," which is lead by a polar bear, and the fourth game, "Can you play 'kick the can'?," which is lead by a Russian nesting doll.

The cast includes Sōta Fukushi (live-action Library Wars/Toshokan Sensō) as Shun Takahata, Hirona Yamazaki (Lesson of the Evil, Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu) as Shun's childhood friend Ichika Akimoto, Ryunosuke Kamiki (Summer Wars, Howl's Moving Castle, Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen) as Shun's violence-loving classmate Takeru Amaya, and Mio Yūki (live-action Hakuba no Ōji-sama, Flying Goldfish & the Secret of the World) as Shōko Takase. Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer, Crows Zero) is directing the film.

The film will premiere in Japan on November 15.
