Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new Gundam anime! Sunrise and surprised everyone when they started streaming a brand new Gundam episode. It turns out that this new Gundam episode is for their upcoming Gundam Build Divers anime, and it serves as a prologue for the new anime:

While the prologue episode is now available via the official YouTube channel, the anime itself won’t be coming until Spring 2018. Here’s how they describe the Prologue Episode:

The Gunpla Force Battle Tournament is a big event held in GBN once per year. Competing in the final round are Avalon, led by the champion Kyoya Kujo, and the elite 7th Panzer Division led by the cunning Rommel. Starting with Kyoya’s Gundam AGE II Magnum, a variety of Gunpla take to the field to determine which is the strongest force!

Shinya Watada will be directing the anime over at Sunrise, while Shuri Toida does the character designs. From the title, the new anime sounds like another entry to the ever-growing Gundam Build Fighters franchise. This also goes with their previous announcements, as Sunrise previously teased more Gundam Build Fighters projects for 2018.

So far, the YouTube channel has been streaming several Gundam episodes for free. This includes the Remastered edition of Gundam Wing, as well as Gundam Build Fighters: Battlogue.
