The third film Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch - Ōdō (lit.: The Imperial Path, official English subtitle: Glorification) will open in Japan on May 26.
Additional details regarding the films' North American release will be announced in the future.
Sunrise also announced that Funimation will release the second season of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans on home video this summer. The series aired on Toonami last October.
