The official Twitter account of Yūki Tabata's Black Clover manga revealed on Monday that the Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King (Black Clover: Mahо̄tei no Ken) anime film will get a novel adaptation on June 9.

The film is delayed from its original March 31 opening to June 16 due to the spread of COVID-19 affecting the film's production. Netflix will debut the film on its service on June 16.
