posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sunrise opened a new website on Monday that revealed that the new Gundam Build franchise work is a new television anime titled Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE.
The Gundam.info portal also began streaming a 40th anniversary video for the Gundam franchise on Saturday, which previews a few seconds of footage from Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE.
Sunrise announced at Sakura-Con in April that a new anime project in the Gundam Build franchise after Gundam Build Divers is already in the works.
The latest anime in the Gundam Build franchise, Gundam Build Divers, premiered in April 2018, and Crunchyroll and Gundam.info both streamed the series. Funimation then added the anime to its FunimationNow streaming service in March. The series is available with English subtitles and an English dub.
Gundam.info describes the story:
Gunpla Battle Nexus Online (GBN) is a New Network game that lets people enjoy a variety of missions using Gunpla in a virtual cyberspace dimension. Middle-school students Riku Mikami and Yukio Hidaka recruit their classmate Momoka Yashiro and dive together into this vast world. Becoming "Divers," or inhabitants of GBN, they meet a mysterious girl named Sarah who has an amazing sensitivity to Gunpla. They begin playing alongside her, but...
Through many encounters and experiences, Riku and his friends will build not only Gunpla, but their own adventures as well!
Sunrise and Right Stuf released two of the previous Gundam Build series, Gundam Build Fighters and Gundam Build Fighters Try, on home video with English dubs.
The Gundam Build Fighters: GM no Gyakushū (GM's Counterattack) film focuses on Sei Iori and the original cast of Gundam Build Fighters in a new story. The film opened in Japan in August 2017. The five-episode Gundam Build Fighters: Battlogue short net anime series also premiered in August 2017. Both projects were part of an overall Gundam Build _Extra Battle project.
