Kakegurui Twin, the spinoff and prequel to gambling parent series Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler, has released its main promotional video ahead of its premiere on streaming platform Netflix on Aug. 4, 2022.
The story takes place one year before parent series Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler, meaning Yumeko Jabami hasn't transferred to Hyakkaou Private Academy yet. This means deuteragonist Mary Saotome (CV: Minami Tanaka) will be the protagonist of Kakegurui Twin as she transfers into the school.
New character Tsuzura Hanatemari (CV: Rina Honnizumi) is the deuteragonist of Kakegurui Twin. She becomes an avid admirer of Mary due to the latter's skillful gambling.
The main PV also features the ending theme song Queens Bluff by Jpop idol i☆Ris.
