On July 15th a press conference was held in Tokyo to announce the fourteenth installment in the ongoing Gundam series: Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS, which will begin airing in Japan on October 4th. Hit the full article to watch the announcement video!
Set 300 years after an event known as known as the Calamity War and featuring a young band of fighters who take possession of an incomplete mobile suit, the Gundam Barbatos, which they use to fight and upgrade with components from fallen enemy mobile suits.
Additionally, High Grade 1/144 scale model kits of the Gundam Barbatos and Graze mobile suits were unveiled, along with a Master Grade 1/100 Barbatos. I’m digging the look of the incomplete Barbatos, and the hinted upgrades mean we’ll likely see other versions, much like the Gundam AGE kits and add-on packs similar to the HG Build Custom parts for the Gundam Build Fighters range.
