The official site for Psycho-Pass is now showing two new trailers and key visuals of the upcoming movie of the same name. Scheduled for 9 January 2016, the movie will be directed by Naoyoshi Tadayoshi who is the director of both seasons of the TV series. Gen Urobochi (Aldnoah Zero, Fate/Zero) is the screenplay and original writer who is working together with Makoto Fukami for this franchise. The character designer is Akira Amano (Katekayo Hitman Reborn!) and music composer is by Yugo Kanno (Psycho-Pass, Jojo Bizzare Adventure: Stardust Crusaders).

Production I.G will be responsible for the animation. On a sidenote, an Xbox One game based on the series is currently in development with the title Psycho Pass: Sentaku Naki Kōfuku (Psycho-Pass: Happiness Without Choice) . Reportedly, MAGES, the company who also did the visual novel game Steins; Gate is incorporating Kinect, Smartglass and iOS/Android mobile devices for fully immersive version of the game. There will also be two new game exclusive playable characters who will be the focus of the game’s narrative- Inspector Nadeshiko Kugatachi and Enforcer Takuma Tsurugi. No known date for the release of the game but it is expected somewhere in the near future.

Check out the demo video of the game shown at Tokyo Game Show 2014 below:

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, a collaboration between this movie and Ghost in the Shell: Arise also announced but no details emerging from this yet. Anyway, have a look at two trailers of the upcoming movie which heavily hints on the return of ex-Enforcer Ogami, the hero of Season One.
