Sunrise officially announced a brand new Mobile Suit Gundam series titled Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury.
On the official Gundam website a banner reveals the anime’s title and notes that it is “the newest Gundam series” and that it will arrive some time in 2022.
No other details have been announced about the project.
The last Mobile Suit Gundam project was Gundam Build Divers and its sequel Gundam Build Divers Re: RISE. The sequel began airing back in 2019 and concluded in Japan in August 2020.
The English adaptation of the sequel series aired its last episode in March of this year. The entire series is available to watch on the official Gundam Info YouTube channel.
Before Gundam Build Divers, Sunrise released Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 back in April 2016. The series was a broadcast version of the Mobile Suit Gundam theatrical OVA that was originally released between 2010 and 2014.
The series takes place in the Universal Century and follows Banagher Links as he follows clues to discover the secret of Laplace’s Box.
All the episodes are also available to view on the official Gundam Info YouTube channel.
Not only are they developing a new anime series, but back in July they announced a new manga series and gunpla project with Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ECLIPSE.
The story for Mobile Suit Gundam SEED ECLIPSE will take place in the Cosmic Era specifically in C.E. 72 between the events of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny.
It will follow the efforts of the Orb Disaster Relief Team as they “are dispatched all over the world for missions and run around to fulfill troublesome tasks every time they receive orders.”
