It is announced today that a launch event for the new Gundam visual project will be held on 11:59 am, July 2nd (JST), 7:59 pm, July 1st (PST). The event will be live-streamed simultaneously on Gundam. info, the special site for the project, and Bandai Channel: Minna de Stream. The event itself will be opened only for the media, the fans will not be allowed to attend.
The special site for the project is also opened today. You can check the images of two gundams and the words "1/144 GUNDAM Kidou.". "Kidou/機動" is the first two Chinese characters of the original Japanese title for the first TV series in 1979-1980, Kidou Senshi Gundam/機動戦士ガンダム (Mobile Suit Gundam).
The Gundam.info article says it is "Gundam new visual project," so it doesn't necessarily mean that the
project will be a new anime series. The word "1/144" is a scale used for the Gundam plamodels (Gunpla).
So many assume the new project must be related to the Gunpla kits. What's your thought and expectation
for the new Gundam?
