This superhero super-team is adding a new member as it sets its sights on the big screen!
Earlier today, the official Infini-T Force anime website updated with new details for the upcoming theatrical film, titled Infini-T Force – Gatchaman Saraba Tomo yo (Infini-T Force – Gatchaman – Farewell my Friends).
We break the details down below:
The new visual features a shot of a second Gatchaman character. Specifically, Joe the Condor stands front and center against a dark backlit background.
The 30-second trailer features flashes of action, leading up to the reveal of a new Gatchaman. Ken the Eagle cries “Joe! Is that you, Joe?!” at the end.
Infini-T Force – Gatchaman Saraba Tomo yo hits Japanese theaters on February 24.
The Infini-T Force anime series is currently airing on Japanese TV. Psycho-Pass 2 director Kiyotaka Suzuki is helming the series at Digital Frontier, with manga author Oh! great (Air Gear, Tenjo Tenge) providing the original character designs. Keiichi Satou (The Big O, City Hunter: The Motion Picture) is providing the original Hero Concepts for the title, while Koji Nakakita (Gatchaman Crowds, Wandaba Style) provides mechanical and suit designs.
Infini-T Force is being produced to celebrate Tatsunoko’s 55th anniversary. The title will feature an original story, which differs from Ukyo Kodachi’s Infini-T Force ~Mirai no Byosen~ manga.
Viz Media currently holds the rights to the series in North America. They describe it as:
Living in Tokyo’s trendy Shibuya district, Emi Kaido is the envy of almost every high schooler in Japan. She has startling wealth, a luxurious modern apartment, and no parents in sight. But beneath it all lies a tangle of apathy and loneliness. Emi is parentless and is looking for diversion in all the wrong—and dangerous—places. And it’s the choices Emi makes that teaches her that life can change in an instant. Her penchant for peril drags her into yet another life-and-death situation, this time involving an enigmatic object known as the “Case” and four mysterious heroes. What ensues is an all-out battle between good and evil, and a story of self-realization. The future of humanity and the world lies in Emi’s hands.
