Previously, new projects in both Cyborg 009 and Devilman were announced to receive limited theatrical event screenings, though the two properties initially weren’t linked. They were both revealed independently with their own key visuals.

According to Toei, the series will be released in a complete collection, as well as in individual volumes. The first volume, as well as two flavors of the full set (Standard and Limited Edition) will hit on November 11. The second volume will ship on December 9, and the third on January 6, 2016. Seven theaters will screen the series during a two-week stretch in October.

Cyborg 009 vs. Devilman will be directed by Jun Kawagoe (Getter Robo Armageddon, New Getter Robo), and animated by studios Actas (Girls und Panzer) and BeeMedia (Getter Robo: Armageddon).

A trailer was released to promote the title, which you can check out below:
