Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-blooded Orphans revealed!

Sunrise has announced the next Gundam series, Kidou Senshi Gundam: Tekketsu no Orphans (aka Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-blooded Orphans) at a recent presscon.

The series comes straight off the heels of the latest Universal Century entry G no Reconguista however it is not yet known if this is another entry in that timeline or if it will be another alternate universe. What we do know is a certain war event of 300 years ago paves way for the setting of Tekketsu no Orphans.

The main Gundam this time around is the Gundam Barbatos, which is a relic from the said war from long ago. It has this gimmick of “upgrading via various junk from enemies and allies alike”. The main characters are Mikazuki Augus and Orga Itsuka
