Official Announcement of New Gundam SEED Game and Anime Projects

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Project Ignited, a project to execute various Mobile Suit Gundam SEED series initiatives throughout the world, including the production of a new game, has been announced by Bandai Namco Group.

In 2022, the project will be spearheaded by an anime film series that is already in production, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Mobile Suit Gundam Seed anime. Director Mitsuo Fukuda will manage the project, which will be announced at a later date with further specifics and release information.


A Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Eclipse side-story manga set in Cosmic Era 72 will be released on July 26. The trio, which is led by Tatsumi Hri, a 17-year-old mobile suit pilot, Miyabi Oto Ki, a 19-year-old commander, and Ken Noland Suse, an 18-year-old Coordinator pilot, serves as an empty unit known as "ODR" that works during the "lost two years" between the two wars.

The following are the five projects that have been announced:

Project 1: Movie Production
Mitsuo Fukuda is directing the film, which acts as a sequel to the TV series. The release date and other details will be disclosed at a later date.

Project 2: The Life-Sized Freedom Gundam Statu
A life-sized Freedom Gundam monument was placed in Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport Shanghai Jinqiao, the first life-sized Gundam outside of Japan, which debuted on April 28 in Shanghai, China. It stands at a height of 18.03 meters.

Project 3: Gundam Docks at Shanghai
Gundam Docks in Shanghai, the first major Gundam event in China, will take place at Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport Shanghai Jinqiao from May 28 to July 11. Learn about Gundam's history and animation, play with Gunpla, and buy event-only goodies.

Project 4: New Game in Development
A new game in the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED series is in development. Details will be announced at a later point in time

Project 5: Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ECLIPSE Comic
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ECLIPSE is a new comic series that will begin serialization in July.




The MV-X08 Eclipse Gundam, a new “hero” mobile suit, will also make its appearance in the series. The Eclipse Gundam was constructed in secret by Orb (the same nation that created SEED's Strike Gundam), and it can convert into a flying mobile armor with "Mirage Colloid" stealth technologies. It may also be used with the Strike Gundam's "Striker Pack" gear. In August 2021, an MG-grade plastic model kit of the Eclipse Gundam will be published. It's the "quickest creation of a Gundam plastic model from 3D design to MG" yet, according to the official page.
