The UK Netflix website is listing Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress: The Battle of Unato (Kōtetsujō no Kabaneri: Unato Kessen) for September 13. The film is the sequel to the original Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress series.
Tetsuro Araki returned to direct the film at Wit Studio, and was also the film's scriptwriter. Code Geass creator Ichiro Okouchi, who wrote the TV series' scripts, was credited with organization. Haruhiko Mikimoto (Macross 7, Gunbuster) was credited with the original character design, and Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan, Aldnoah.Zero) returned to compose the music. EGOIST performed the theme song "Sakase ya Sakase." The film also featured a returning Japanese voice cast.
The film focuses on the character Mumei, and takes place half a year after the the original television anime series. The official website for the anime lists the film as the "middle volume."
The original Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress television anime aired from April-July 2016.
The "steampunk survival action" story takes place on the island country Hinomoto, where humans hide themselves in fortresses called stations against the threat of zombie-like beings with steel hearts known as "Kabane." Only armored locomotives known as "Hayajiro" go between the stations.
