For the first time, the footage features Kenshi Yonezu’s opening theme song “M87 (Original Title: M八七).”

We see a flying Ultraman, giant unidentified “S-Class Species,” responses by the Government and the S-Class Species Suppression Protocol (enforcement unit) – or SSSP for short – as well as appearances of new aliens.

Starting today, April 15 (JST), the lengthy 82-second trailer will also start playing in theaters across Japan.

The Story of Shin Ultraman

The appearance of giant unidentified lifeforms known as “S-Class Species” has become commonplace in Japan. Conventional weapons have no effect on them. Having exhausted all other options, the Japanese Government issued the S-Class Species Suppression Protocol and formed an enforcement unit, known as the SSSP.

The members chosen for the unit include: Leader Fumio Tamura (played by Hidetoshi Nishijima), Executive Strategist Shinji Kaminaga (played by Takumi Saitoh), Unparticle Physicist Taki Akihisa (played by Daiki Arioka), and Universal Biologist Yume Funaberi (Akari Hayami).

As the threat of S-Class Species worsens, a silver giant appears from beyond Earth’s atmosphere.

Analyst Hiroko Asami (played by Masami Nagasawa) is newly appointed to the SSSP to deal with this giant and is partnered with Shinji Kaminaga.

In Hiroko’s report, she writes...

“Ultraman (tentative name), identity unknown”.
