The "Walküre Senjō no Premium Live Event at Toyosu Pit" announced in Tokyo on Sunday that production has been green-lit on a new Macross Delta film. The event also announced that the Macross franchise will hold two "Crossover Live 2019 at Makuhari Messe" concerts in June.
The announcement specifically describes the upcoming Macross Delta film as "entirely new" — as opposed to this year's Macross Delta the Movie - Passionate Walkūre, which compiled earlier television anime footage with some new sequences.
The "Macross Crossover Live 2019 at Makuhari Messe" concerts will feature singers from every Macross television series. In particular, they will include Mari Iijima (first Macross series and film's Lynn Minmay), Yoshiki Fukuyama (Macross 7's Basara Nekki), Chie Kajiura (Macross 7's Mylene Jenius), May'n (Macross Frontier's Sheryl Nome), Megumi Nakajima (Macross Frontier's Ranka Lee), and the five Walküre idols (Macross Delta).
The concerts will take place at the Makuhari Messe venue's International Exhibition Halls 1 to 3 in Chiba on June 1 and June 2. People can apply for the random drawing for the first round of tickets from September 23 to October 9 on the official Macross website.
A digest of the previous Walkūre 3rd Live concert began streaming on Flying Dog's YouTube channel at 9:00 p.m. on Sunday.
