Just as we’re enjoying the recent release of New Gundam Breaker from Bandai Namco and in full on Gundam hype mode an English trailer is unveiled for Mobile Suit Gundam NT (Narrative).
Mobile Suit Gundam NT (Narrative) is the new anime project for the Gundam franchise and takes place in U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.” The new project will see theatrical screenings in Japan in November, hopefully, we’ll see something to that effect here but it could be a long wait otherwise.
Synopsis: U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.” Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.
The conflict later dubbed the “Laplace Incident” is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people’s consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten.
However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix… named Phenex.
Mobile Suit Gundam NT (Narrative) features the tagline “The next destination of the Newtype legend.” and is part of a new “UC Next 0100 Project” that will focus on the future of the Universal Century timeline. Here are some of the characters that’ll appear in this new entry in the Gundam franchise: (Note: character romanizations are not official.)
Let’s not forget the all-important mech designs and I’m really excited to see these animated as they look fantastic.
