Brace yourselves Gundam fans, because Sunrise just announced a brand new Gundam series. Titled Gundam Build Divers, they also revealed that the new anime will premiere sometime in spring 2018. They also started streaming the anime’s prologue episode for free via Gundam.info YouTube channel.
The latest addition in the Gundam Build Fighters universe, it seems that this new anime also brings a twist to the usual GunPla battles. Here’s how they describe the prologue episode:
The Gunpla Force Battle Tournament is a big event held in GBN once per year. Competing in the final round are Avalon, led by the champion Kyoya Kujo, and the elite 7th Panzer Division led by the cunning Rommel. Starting with Kyoya’s Gundam AGE II Magnum, a variety of Gunpla take to the field to determine which is the strongest force!
Sunrise also unveiled a brand new key visual featuring the new Gundam 00 Diver:
And as expected, there will also be new HGBF 1/144 GunPla as well!
Expect Sunrise to reveal more information about the new anime soon. As of now, it seems that they are really gearing up for a new Gundam anime, as well as new GunPla.
