As 2009 goes on we are small updates about the newest project in the Gundam franchise, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. In the pictures above (screencaps from some sort of television or video special) we get to see some behind-the-scenes work on the story. Although it still hasn’t been announced what format Unicorn will be released in (OVA, Television series, or a movie) I’m willing to bet that it will be a direct to video release. Sunrise has announced that Unicorn will have a same-day global release, a first for the franchise.
In August a new gashapon mini-figure series focusing on some of the principle characters in Berserk will be released. The Skull Knight and God Hand figures look especially cool.
