The movie opens in Japan on April 8, 2017. It will screen in Shinjuku Musashinokan theater and other areas nationwide.
The film follows Sakumoto, a novelist who won a new writer award when he was younger and became a best-selling author. However, he has been dealing with writer's block lately. To turn over a new leaf, he moves to a tranquil new home, but he still remains downbeat. One day when he was at his wit's end, he looks out into the garden, where a cat shows up. Although Sakumoto tries talking to the cat, it goes away, and Sakumoto is downbeat again. That evening, he places dry cat food in a corner of the garden. The following morning, the food is gone, and all of a sudden, Sakumoto is intrigued.
Masatoshi Kurakata (Railways Ai o Tsutaerarenai Otona-tachi e, Game Center CX the Movie 1986 Mighty Bomb Jack) is directing the film. Yūji Nagamori planned and wrote the screenplay, and Mediand is producing.
The game has been downloaded over 19 million times worldwide since it debuted in October 2014.
