New information is rolling out for Gundam NT, the upcoming Universal Century series.
A new key visual for the series was debuted at today's PRELUDE TO NARRATIVE event at Tokyo's Zepp DiverCity:
Also announced was the invovement of composer Hiroyuki Sawano and singer LiSA. Credited as SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:LiSA, the two will supply the opening theme "Narrative."
The official synopsis of the series reads:
U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of "Laplace's Box."
Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of
Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.
The conflict later dubbed the "Laplace Incident" is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo
Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed
power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove
this danger from people's consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten.
However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself
in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix... named Phenex.
Mobile Suit Gundam NT premieres November 30.
