Retelling of Chinese classic Romance of the Three Kingdoms with Gundam robots

The Bandai booth at the 49th All Japan Plamodel Hobby Show has announced on Thursday that an anime adaptation of the BB Senshi Sangokuden model line has been green-lit. BB Senshi Sangokuden is an SD Gundam model series that re-imagines Gundam mobile suit robots as characters in the classic Chinese novel Sangokushi (Romance of the Three Kingdoms). More details will be provided at a later date.

SD Gundam's retelling of the Sangokushi tale has already been adapted before in the 1993 Mobile Suit SD Gundam Festival film and various manga. A manga called BB Senshi Sangokuden ~Senshin Kettou Hen~ has been running in Kadokawa Shoten's Kerokero Ace magazine, and the next three monthly issues will bundle special BB Senshi Sangokuden cards.

This year's hobby show will run from Thursday to Sunday at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba, Japan.
