The May issue of Enterbrain's B's-Log game magazine announced on Saturday that QuinRose's Alice in the Country of Hearts (Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder World~) fantasy romance adventure game is being adapted into a theatrical anime film. The game for female players (otome game) re-imagines Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with bishōnen characters. (The game's Japanese title is a wordplay on that novel's Japanese title, except it replaces "Fushigi/Wonder" with "Heart.")

The game first shipped for Microsoft Windows in 2007, and the Prototype company ported it to the Sony PlayStation 2 game console in 2008 with new computer graphics and new story elements. (Prototype's PSP version followed in 2009.) Two more games called Clover no Kuni no Alice (Alice in the Country of Clovers) Joker no Kuni no Alice (Alice in the Country of the Joker) debuted in 2007 and 2009, respectively.

An original video anime adaptation was already planned in 2008, but it has been delayed since that year. Soumei Hoshino adapted the game into a manga in Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Avarus magazine until last September, and Tokyopop published the fifth manga volume in North America last November.

According to QuinRose, the film will feature an original story with the motif of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The developer says that people who played the game, and people who have not, can both watch the film.

Mamenosuke Fujimaru is launching a new manga series called Joker no Kuni no Alice ~Circus to Usotsuki Game~ (Alice in the Country of the Joker: The Circus and the Lying Game) in the June issue of Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine on April 28.

The film will open on July 30 in seven Japanese cities. Asahi Production and QuinRose are producing the animation, and Klock Worx is distributing the film. The cast is as follows:

Alice Liddell: Rie Kugimiya
Blood Dupre: Katsuyuki Konishi
Elliot March: Tsuguo Mogami
Tweedle Dee: Jun Fukuyama
Tweedle Dum: Jun Fukuyama
Vivaldi: Yuko Kaida
Peter White: Kouki Miyata
Ace: Daisuke Hirakawa
Julius Monrey: Takehito Koyasu
Boris Airay: Noriaki Sugiyama
Mary Gowland: Kenyuu Horiuchi
Nightmare: Tomokazu Sugita
Joker: Akira Ishida
