The Neko Atsume live-action movie trailer is purfect

A dream of a thousand cats.

Back in November we reported that popular cat-collecting mobile hit Neko Atsume would be getting a live-action film adaptation and now there's a trailer for said movie.

Called Neko Atsume No Ie (which Google delightfully translates into Cat Thick House), the film follows the exploits of a reclusive author (Atsushi Itô, of Battlefield Baseball fame) who moves into a house, meets a cat that inspires him, then loses said feline and does everything in his power to lure his beloved companion back to him.

The Neko Atsume movie is being directed by Masatoshi Kurakata, who was a writer on Shenmue 2 and an assistant director on Resident Evil 0 and Clock Tower 3.

Neko Atsume No Ie will be released in Japan on 8th April. No western release has been announced.
