The movie was originally scheduled to release March 27; however, due to the COVID-19 threat, the movie was pushed back several months as theaters closed through Japan’s peak case numbers. Variety notes that, as of May, theaters began reopening with enhanced safety measures for customers.
This international release follows the announcement that a sequel is already in development.
