As the title shows, the “true ending” will be released at the start of the movie. The real world is destroyed, and a battle will occur between the ninja group and those who wish to dominate the world through a virtual reality (VR) space. The movie will be a collaboration with PlayStation VR.
Hiroki Iijima, who portrays Emu Hojo/Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, stated “I knew that PlayStation VR existed, but I never used it. I was unfamiliar with it. I thought, what kind of thing is it? When I used it, I saw the new world (laugh). It was in 360 degrees, and I excitedly said I seem to really be in a virtual reality space. The VR device becomes a key item of transformation.”
Futhermore Iijima said, “Although my work as Ex-Aid will be the last, the theme of Ex-Aid itself is games and medical treatment. It will be a challenging story, but the story will be ours. I’m looking forward to the conclusion, though it will also break my heart.”
In addition to the cast talk, several Kamen Rider Ex-Aid forms appeared on stage.
The cast of Uchu Sentai Kyuranger also discussed their upcoming film. Uchu Sentai Kyuranger the Movie will have a big adventure in the universe. Film Director Takayuki Shibasaki stated about the enemies “The Indabe will be one of the strongest in the history of Super Sentai. We created an enemy to show how the heroes can overcome them. I thought it would be a good story to convey to children.
