For this film, we just need to follow the arrow.
Earlier today, the official Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? anime website updated with a new trailer and key visual for upcoming movie Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion (Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka: Arrow of the Orion; DanMachi: Arrow of Orion henceforth). We break the details down below.
The 90-second promo introduces the main plot and characters for the film, with dialogue providing the major story beats. Theme song Onaji Sora no Shita de (Under the Same Sky) by Yuka Eguchi kicks in as a background track at the 47-second mark.
The image features the main cast members posing before a crumbling ruin. Bell takes the center spot, as he holds a spear.
DanMachi: Arrow of the Orion hits Japanese theaters on February 15. Sentai Filmworks holds the rights to the film, and plans to give it a North American theatrical run.

Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to the DanMachi anime.
Yen Press currently holds the rights to Fujino Ōmori and illustrator Suzuhito Yasuda’s DanMachi light novels and manga. They describe the title as:
In Orario, fearless adventurers band together in search of fame and fortune within the monstrous underground labyrinth known as Dungeon.
But while riches and renown are incentive enough for most, Bell Cranel, would-be hero extraordinaire, has bigger plans.
He wants to pick up girls.
Is it wrong to face the perils of Dungeon alone, in a single-member guild blessed by a failed goddess? Maybe. Is it wrong to dream of playing hero to hapless maidens in Dungeon? Maybe not. After one misguided adventure, Bell quickly discovers that anything can happen in the labyrinth–even chance encounters with beautiful women. The only problem? He’s the one who winds up the damsel in distress!
