That comes in the form of a new dialogue-free but music heavy thirty-second promo for the project.

Both formats are listed as limited editions with the DVDs priced at 6,500 yen while the Blu-ray releases are at 7,000 yen. The details of the releases are minimal so far though it looks like each limited edition will come with a CD of some sort as well as a booklet.
