Upcoming multi-part sequel takes off at the end of this month.
If you're not already hyped for Yamato 2202, don't worry -- there are still more teasers to come. The new nationwide 30-second spot started airing just a few days ago, and contains some familiar faces:
Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love picks up where 2199 left off, and will be released in the same way. The first installment launches February 25, both in Japanese theaters and as a limited-edition Blu-Ray and digital cell release.
And for people who want to get a real immersive experience, there's a Yamato pop-up cafe opening at NewType Shinjuku for a limited time. The cafe, which has a regular offering of meals and drinks inspired by Gundam, Macross, and more, will be offering Yamato-themed menu items from now until February 28.
