posted on by Alex Mateo

The official website for the Neko Atsume no Ie (Neko Atsume's Home) film based on Hit-Point's smartphone app Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector began streaming a new trailer on Wednesday, revealing additional cast members.

The additonal cast includes:

Tomoro Taguchi (live-action Gantz) as Asakusa, the heroine Michiru's senior editor

Tae Kimura (live-action Densha Otoko television series) as Yōko, a shopkeeper at a pet shop

Kayoko Ōkubo as an odd real estate agent

The staff also revealed that they have cast Masahiro Toda, Hiroka Aoto, Sowa Ōmine, Tōshirō Muraki, and Usagi Ōyama.

The previously announced cast includes:

Atsushi Itou (live-action Densha Otoko television series, Flying Colors/Birigal) as Sakumoto, the protagonist and novelist

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.
