Mobile Suit Gundam NT, also known as Gundam Narrative, will be the latest addition to the Gundam franchise. And hey, it even inspired a new meme before it even hit the big screen! And now, the staff have started streaming a new long trailer for the upcoming anime movie. It also gives us a taste of LiSA and Sawano Hiroyuki’s collaboration song, “Narrative”.
The Gundam Unicorn unit 03, the Phenex, looks scary, huh? The movie is set in UC 0097, right after the events of Gundam UC, which happens on UC 0096. It will premiere in Japan on November 30, 2018, with an expected international release as well.
Gundam Thunderbolt’s Shunichi Yoshizawa is directing the anime at Sunrise Studio #1, while Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC) is writing the script. Here’s how the official website describes the story:
U.C. 0097. The year the Laplace’s Box was opened. Despite the revelation of the original charter for the Universal Century, which acknowledges the existence of Newtypes and their rights, the world remains largely unchanged.
After the destruction of the Neo Zeon remnant force known as the Sleeves, the event that has come to be known as the “Laplace Incident” seems to have drawn to a close. In the final battle, two Full Psycho Frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human imagination. The menace of the White Unicorn and the Black Lion were sealed away from public consciousness, and were consigned to be forgotten by history.
But now sightings of the RX-0 Unicorn 03, long thought lost two years ago, are being reported. Its name is Phenex, an immortal golden bird.
Much like Gundam UC, Hajime Katoki is also working on the new anime’s mecha design. The new mobile suits will include:
RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex
