The Gundam franchise has been tied with energy ever since the first series back in 1979 with the introduction of the concept of Minovsky Particles, in fact, some of the conflicts in other Gundam series like Gundam 00 and Gundam Recongiusta in G have been centered on energy. Now, in a new video, the most iconic Gundam of them all, the original RX-78-2, is seen scouring the globe for some energy resources in a collaboration with the JX Group of companies.

The Gundam visited the Caserones Mines in Chile where some of the world’s copper comes from. Copper is an important conductor of energy and has been used in many things here in our modern world.

The Gundam then stopped by Vietnam’s Landon Oil Field, one of the nearest oil wells in Japan. It is also where some of Japan’s oil comes from.

Finally, the Gundam went back to Japan as it visited Achinohe Port in Aomori Prefecture, which is considered one of Japan’s biggest and most important natural gas sources.
