The new SD Gundam project will launch in the spring of 2019
The official global website for SD GUNDAM WORLD SANGOKU SOKETSUDEN, the upcoming new SD
Gundam project loosely based on the Chinese historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, opens
today for its worldwide launch in the spring of 2019. The site and a 110-second PV reveals its world setting,
story, and main characters.
The story introduction:
Repeated warfare has destroyed countries that once prospered gloriously, leaving the land in ruins.
Just when revival is in sight, an epidemic of the mysterious Yellow Zombie Virus breaks out.
The virus carriers lose themselves and start attacking people. The survivors are forced to live inside
fortified cities for protection.
However, behind closed walls, the lord Dong Zhuo has been acting in an outrageous manner since
the passing of the previous lord. As if drawn together by destiny, Liu Bei Unicorn Gundam meets
Guan Yu Nu Gundam and Zhang Fei God Gundam, and decides to save the world.
Eventually, the passion of the three young men will bring about great change in the world. The new
heroes unveil a new chapter in history!
