The official website for the Lupin the IIIrd Chikemuri no Ishikawa Goemon (Lupin the Third: Goemon Ishikawa's Spray of Blood) anime film began streaming a trailer for the film on Friday. The film's staff also revealed a new poster visual on Friday.

The film will open in Japan on February 4.

The new film will feature a returning staff from the Lupin the Third: Jigen's Gravestone film:

Director, Producer: Takeshi Koike
Screenplay: Yuuya Takahashi
Music: James Shimoji
Animation Production: Telecom Animation Film
Producer: Yu Kiyozono

The current cast for Lupin III, Daisuke Jigen, Goemon Ishikawa, Fujiko Mine, and Koichi Zenigata are also reprising their roles.

Originally released in June 2014, Lupin the Third: Jigen's Gravestone is a spinoff of the 2012 television anime Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, and features much of the television anime's creative staff, including director, character designer, and art director Takeshi Koike. The film tells the story of how Lupin and Jigen became partners. The two undertake a heist in a fortified country, and Jigen's life is threatened by a skilled sniper.

Discotek Media released the movie on Blu-ray Disc and DVD with an English dub and English subtitles on April 5.
