It’s time to light up the new world with a familiar artifact.
Earlier today, Comic Natalie started streaming a new clip for upcoming film Death Note: Light Up the New World. The 25-second teaser features Sakura Aoi (Rina Kawaei) using the Death Note, as well as the “Shinigami Eyes” to kill a random pedestrian.
Death Note: Light Up the New World is the sequel to 2006’s live-action Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name films. The feature is set in today’s world, which is beset by the horrors of cyber-terrorism. It’s in this unique environment that a pair of new characters, who “inherited the DNA” or Light Yagami and L arise. The two new masterminds are drawn to do battle against one another, for the control of the six Death Notes on Earth.
Shinsuke Sato (Gantz: Perfect Answer, Library Wars) directed the feature, with Warner Brothers distributing. Namie Amuro will perform theme song Dear Diary, as well as insert song Fighter.
The confirmed cast includes:
- Yuki Shien: Masaki Suda
- Ryuzaki: Sousuke Ikematsu
