Bandai Namco has announced a new project Dubbed “GUNDAM SEED PROJECT ignited“, featuring a slew of new works to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of “GUNDAM SEED”! First off is the announcement that a new feature film is being developed as a sequel to the original TV series! The film will be produced by Mitsuo Fukuda, and more details will be revealed in the near future.
Next up, the full-scale model of the “Freedom Gundam” at Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport Shanghai has officially opened to much fanfare. The “Freedom Gundam” — standing at over 18 metres tall, is the first full-scale Gundam statue to have large wings on its back.
Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport Shanghai will also be hosting “GUNDAM Docks at Shanghai” from May to July 2021, where fans can get to enjoy many aspects of their hobby — including special anime showcases, competitions and performances, and limited edition goods. A similar event “Gundam Docks at Singapore” was held in 2015.
Last but not least, a new spin-off manga “Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ECLIPSE” will begin serialisation! As a new MSV (Mobile Suit Variations) project of the “Mobile Suit Gundam SEED” series, “Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ECLIPSE” will be launched in comics in Japan and overseas in July 2021.
