Video previews new version of "Butter-Fly" song

The official website for the Digimon Adventure tri. anime film project unveiled a new visual on Friday. The visual shows the main human characters with a new form of Omegamon/Omnimon named "Omegamon Merciful Mode."

The website also posted a video recapping the first five films over a preview of the new ending theme. (Note: The video on the website is region-locked to Japan and a region-free version is below.) The film's ending theme will be the franchise's representative "Butter-Fly" song with the title "Butter-Fly ~tri.Version~." The singers of the song include the "DigiDestined" (Natsuki Hanae, Suzuko Mimori, Yoshimasa Hosoya, Mutsumi Tamura, Hitomi Yoshida, Junya Enoki, Junya Ikeda, M.A.O, Miho Arakawa), the "Digimon Singers" (Chika Sakamoto, Katori Shigematsu, Mayumi Yamaguchi, Takahiro Sakurai, Kinoko Yamada, Miwa Matsumoto, Junko Takeuchi, Yuka Tokumitsu, Yukiko Morishita), Ayumi Miyazaki, and AiM. Additionally, the song features late singer Kouji Wada's singing voice.

The film will open in Japan on May 5 and will screen for three weeks. As with previous films in the series, theaters screening the film will also sell a limited-edition Blu-ray Disc. The film will also be available to stream online for a fee on the same day in Japan.

Digimon Adventure tri.- Chapter 1: Reunion opened in November 2015, Digimon Adventure tri.- Chapter 2: Determination opened in March 2016, Digimon Adventure tri.- Chapter 3: Confession opened in September 2016, Digimon Adventure tri.- Chapter 4: Loss opened in February 2017, and Digimon Adventure tri.- Chapter 5: Coexistence opened on September 30.
