The website announced the play and revealed a key visual earlier this month.

The play will adapt the Illuminati arc of Katō's original manga. The leader of the Illuminati, Lucifer, aims to unite Assiah and Gehenna and revive Satan, and so declares war on the True Cross Order. The Illuminati kidnap Izumo as part of their plan, and Yukio leads a rescue effort.

The play will run at Tokyo's Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi from October 20-29 and then at Kobe's Shinkobe Oriental Theater from November 2-5. Advance tickets will go on sale on Friday.

Daisuke Nishida is returning to direct the play and write the scripts. Katō is again assisting with the scripts.

Nishida previously directed the Ao no Exorcist: Ao no Homura Kakusei-hen/Kyōto Fujō-Ō-hen stage play in 2014 and the Ao no Exorcist: Kyōto Guren-hen play last year.
