The official Twitter account for Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans G, the upcoming Iron-Blooded Orphans-themed smartphone app, recently announced the app will be getting new “Side Stories” content.
“Side Stories” are short episodes that depict new stories about the characters that appeared in the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans TV series. They will be presenting the hidden daily lives of Tekkadan, as well as behind-the-scenes stories that have yet to be shown.
The official account also made the announcement that the app would be delayed from its initial spring 2022 release to sometime in 2022. The notice cited the game is still being developed to make the experience even more immersive.
Revealed in 2019, Iron-Blooded Orphans G is a new smartphone app where fans can re-experience seasons one and two of the TV series through gameplay and anime components, as well as a new spin off story, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans- Urdr-Hunt. The mobile game is described as an RPG, will be free to download with some in-app purchases, and will be available in the App Store and Google Play.
A special edition of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans was announced during the 2nd Gundam Conference in September 2021 to coincide with the release of Iron-Blooded Orphans G. The special edition totaled nine episodes and was described as a “digest” version of the series, that premiered on the MBS, Tokyo MX, and BS11 Japanese TV stations in April 5, 2022, along with parts of Urdr-Hunt featured in the broadcast.
Rock-group MAN WITH A MISSION performed the special edition’s theme song titled “Blaze”. The band also performed the Iron-Blooded Orphans series’s first opening theme song “Raise Your Flag”.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans- Urdr-Hunt was announced in 2019 by Bandai Namco Entertainment and Sunrise as a spin-off to the Iron-Blooded Orphans TV anime. Produced by Sunrise BEYOND, Urdr-Hunt takes place between seasons one and two of the Iron-Blooded Orphans series, set on the Venus colony of Radonista, following protagonist Wistario Afam piloting the mysterious Gundam Hajiroboshi. Urdr-Hunt sees most of the core staff members from the original series returning to their roles.

It is the year P.D. 323. Gjallarhorn’s political interference in Arbrau escalated into an armed conflict and came to an end thanks to Tekkadan.
News of Tekkadan’s exploits has also reached the ears of Wistario Afam, a young man born and raised at the Radonitsa Colony near Venus. Venus, which lost to Mars in the initial contest for colony development, is a remote planet in which the four economic blocs have little interest. It is now used as a penal colony for criminals, whose inhabitants don’t even have IDs.
