Details have emerged about the next Gundam series. Mobile Suit Gundam AGE will be the newest Gundam based anime and will premiere this fall in Japan. In true Gundam fashion a manga will be released alongside the series as well as model kits video games and cards. The information is from the Corocoro Comic magazine in Japan. Interestingly it’s video game developer Level 5 who is in charge of the new Gundam – I am familiar with them through the Professor Layton puzzle series of games. More info from ANN below, I’ll publish more info and hopefully video as it’s premiere draws closer.
The new series will have three generations of “father, child, and descendant” as the lead characters. The main characters pilot the Gundam unit to fight against an unknown attacking enemy (UE) and save Earth in a “One Hundred Year War” â€” an apparent homage to the One Year War of the first Gundam series.
The first main character is Furitto Asuno, who developed the Gundam AGE-1 mobile suit (humanoid mobile weapon) equipped with the AGE System (a self-adapting computer). The second main character is Asemu Asuno, Furitto’s child. The third main character is Kio Asuno, Furitto’s descendant who inherits the Gundam. The Gundam AGE-1 can be augmented as the Gundam AGE-1 Titus for more power, or as the Gundam AGE-1 Sparrow for more speed.
Other characters include Emily, Furitto’s friend since he was 7. Guruudekku is a Commander in the Earth Federation Forces and the captain of the battleship Diva. Mireesu is a Lieutenant (junior grade) in the Federation Forces aboard the Diva. – Source – ANN
