Production IG Announces Ghost In The Shell: Arise

Production IG has announced that the company has started work on a new chapter in the saga of Ghost In The Shell called Arise.

The studio has not revealed much information yet and is planning an official launch presentation in Tokyo on 12 February 2013.

What they have revealed is the following:

"Ghost in the Shell: Arise, to be launched in 2013, will be directed by Kazuchika Kise (chief animator in both Ghost in the Shell and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence movies) while the screenplay will be penned by award-winning novelist Tow Ubukata (Mardock Scramble, Le Chevalier d'Eon) and the music composed by Cornelius (Appleseed: Ex Machina). Shirow Masamune will also directly contribute to the project."

Production has set up a website for the project - kokaku-a.com and accounts on Facebook and Twitter but there is little information on any of them at present.

It is not currently clear if Arise will be a TV series or feature film but rest assured we'll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
