Earlier today, the official Re:Creators anime website updated with a new promo video. The two-and-a-half minute teaser features opening theme song gravityWall by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]: Tielle & Gemie as a background track.

The site also updated with seven new cast confirmations. The addition players include:

The Re:Creators website describes the project as:

Humanity has told countless tales.

Joy, sadness, anger, deep emotion.
Stories stir our feelings, and capture our fancy.

Still, these are but the thoughts of passers-by.

But what if the characters of our story have “intentions”? And to them, are we god-like beings for bringing their tales into the world?

Our world has changed.
Dole out punishment of upon the realm of the gods.

In Re:Creators everybody becomes a Creator.

Several character visuals, as well as a pair of promotional videos were released to promote Re:Creators. You can check these out below:
