Sunrise Unveils “Gundam Build _Extra Battle Project” in a 103-Second PV

Soon, fates will be cast, as the battle between legendary robots begins anew.

Earlier today, Sunrise started streaming a teaser video for a new project. The video confirms that Gundam Build _Extra Battle Project, an entry in the Gundam Build Fighters franchise, is officially in production.

The video comes in the wake of an April 28 tease on the official Gundam website. The text within the trailer teases the project as “Gundam Build Fighters Try Island Wars.”

Gundam Build Fighters hit Japanese TV in the Fall 2013 broadcast season. Kenji Nagasaki (Classroom Crisis, My Hero Academia) directed the show at Sunrise, with Kenichi Ohnuki (Garzey’s Wing, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed) providing character designs. Yousuke Kuroda (Hayate the Combat Butler!!, My Hero Academia) was in charge of series composition for the project.

Sequel series Gundam Build Fighters Try aired a year later in Fall 2014. Both Kenichi Ohnuki and Yousuke Kuroda reprised their roles as character designer and series composition, respectively. Shinya Watada (Mobile Suit Gundam AGE Memory of Eden, Aikatsu Stars!) helmed the new season at Sunrise.
