Bandai Entertainment was present in Vancouver for AKA-KON last weekend and made some announcements about their plans for upcoming Gundam Releases.

Excertpted from Gundam.com:

Gundam 0080, Gundam 0083, and Gundam 08th MS Team are all slated for DVD Release next year sometime. Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz will be coming to Video in two formats, the dubbed VHS edition which is the 3 OVAs spliced together to make a movie, and the DVD which contains the 3 separate OVAs, and the Movie with both dub & sub. The DVD will also include a special Gundam Encyclopedia with various Mobile Suit Statistics and information.

The Original Mobile Suit Gundam (all 43 episodes) is coming to Home Video next year. Yoshiyuki Tomino Sensei (creator of Gundam) is involved with the dubbing & production. The episodes are all being digitally re-mastered to make the colors brighter and add parallax/focus effects to give the show greater 3D feel. Bandai Ent. is also working on a TV deal for the original series with both Cartoon Network (USA) and YTV (Canada).

Endless Waltz which aired on Nov 10,2000 on Cartoon Network was their 2nd highest rated show EVER in the Network's history.

Bandai Entertainment is committed to releasing more of the Gundam saga, but production on so many episodes takes time and they'll be coming out over the next few years.
