It’s about time we get a new Gundam series and a new was just announced – Gundam AGE, coming this fall.
It’s called “AGE” because apparently, the story will span across 3 generations in the hundred year war. If you’ve played Infinity Blade on the iPhone, then it’s probably not too far from that. The Gundam shown also looks kinda weird, the first thing that came to mind was a starved Exia.
Taken from ANN:
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” — 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.
Well, silly as it might look and sound, having more Gundam can’t be that bad
