Director records message about story set in One-Year-War-era Europe

Bandai Namco Filmworks posted the teaser promotional video for the new animation project Mobile Suit Gundam: Requiem for Vengeance on Monday and gave more details on its release format and story.


The six 30-minute episodes will stream worldwide, and the story focuses on the European Front during the One Year War made famous by the first Gundam anime.

The story centers on Iria Sorari (left in image below), and the mecha include the Zeon mobile suit Zaku II (center) and the Federation mobile suit Gundam (right).


Director Erasmus Brosdau provided a video message at Bandai Namco Filmworks' Anime Expo industry panel on Saturday, and the official Gundam YouTube channel is now streaming the message:

Australian actress Celia Massingham (DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Ladies in Black) voiced the lead character and performed the motion-capture for animation.

The staff at Sunrise and Safe House is producing the animation entirely with Epic Games' Unreal Engine 5. Gavin Hignight (Tekken: Bloodline, Transformers: Cyberverse, Star Wars: Resistance, Marvel's Spider-Man gqme) is writing, and German artist Erasmus Brosdau (Origin Zero, Warhammer 40.000's "The Lord Inquisitor: Seed of Ambition") is directing the project. Naohiro Ogata (Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury, Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt) and Hignight are serving as executive producers, and Hiroaki Yura is producing.

Manuel Augusto Dischinger Moura is the main character designer, and Kimitoshi Yamane (Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne, multiple Gundam projects) is the mechanical design supervisor. Wilbert Roget II (Mortal Kombat 11, Call of Duty: WWII, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris games) is composing the music.
