One of the many games showcased during Sony's pre-TGS press conference was a new Mobile Suit Gundam game from Bandai Namco.

In Japanese "nezumi" mean rat or mouse. Which means, when the protagonists of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans are derided as "space rats," it allows them to be recast as cute "Orphan-chu" picture-book mice. Gjallarhorn correspondingly become cats. After teasing figures of these at least as far back as spring's HegaHobby Expo, launching a showcase Twitter and site, with season 2 of the anime coming this fall, a set has gone on sale.
Bandai Namco is bringing SD Gundam G Generation Genesis to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on November 22, with an English-subbed Asian release to follow this year.
