There will be a new collaboration with Mitsubishi Motors that will see the girls advertise the latest models for the Japanese market during the Tokyo Motor Show, as well as additional promotional tie-ins, with convenience store chain Circle K doing a special 3 month campaign from next month along with a rebroadcast of the series starting next January.

The biggest announcement centers around the confirmation of a new Vita game, set for April 2014 being developed and published by Namco Bandai. The game is being referred to as a "dramatic tank action" game with more details being released in the 555th issue of Dengeki Playstation magazine. The game will be called Girls und Panzer: Senshadō, Kiwamemasu!. Bandai Namco previously launched a teaser site last week that heavily hinted at a new Garupan game.
