Action-adventure game debuts on March 5, 1 day before film's opening

The December issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comics magazine revealed on Friday that the 2020 Doraemon film Eiga Doraemon: Nobita no Shin Kyoryū (Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's New Dinosaur) will have a Nintendo Switch game that will debut in Japan on March 5, a day before the film's opening. The game will be an action-adventure game. FuRyu is developing the game.

The film will open on March 6, 2020. The film's story begins with Nobita meeting two twin dinosaurs named Kyu and Myu. Despite the film's similarity in title to Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's Dinosaur, the first film in the franchise, the story is completely different.

Kazuaki Imai, an episode director on the Doraemon television anime, and the director of 2018's Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's Treasure Island film, is directing the 40th film. Genki Kawamura is also returning from the 2018 film to pen the new film's script.

The film also has a manga adaptation in Coro Coro Comics that launched in September. Shintarō Mugiwara is drawing the manga.

A separate manga adaptation by high school student Ran Tokiwa launched in Shogakukan's Ciao magazine on November 30. Genki Kawamura is scripting the manga, and Shintarō Mugiwara, the "final apprentice" of Fujiko F. Fujio, is collaborating on the manga.
