Gundam entertainment complex Gundam Park Fukuoka has announced a winter campaign with current Gundam TV installment, Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury. The aptly titled “Gundam Park Campaign with Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury” will begin December 5, and run through the New Year until January 9, 2023.
The event will be multifaceted, taking place across the different areas of the Gundam Park facility: Gundam Side-F, VS PARK with G and namco.
A “Garapon lottery challenge” will be held for visitors who spend 950 yen or more at Gundam Park Fukuoka to get a ticket to participate in the raffle to win various prizes. The prizes includes an HG 1/144 Gundam Aerial, RX-93ff Nu Gundam Statue acrylic stand, both autographed by Kana Ichinose, who portrays protagonist Suletta Mercury in the Witch from Mercury, original limited edition stickers, a pair of tickets to “VS PARK WITH G”, or a free ticket to a namco crane game.
In Gundam Side-F, a statue of XVX-016 Gundam Aerial will be displayed, along with commemorative photo opportunities.
Those with purchase receipts from Gundam Side-F will get 500 yen discount to VS Park with G.
At namco, standees of the main characters from the Witch from Mercury will be displayed throughout the area.
Last week, the Gundam Park facility announced its life-sized RX-93ff Nu Gundam attraction’s winter lighting event, commencing from December 4 to February 2023. A “WINTER TREE” objet d’art based on the RX-93ff will sit at the foot at the statue, adorned with a tree topper of Amuro Ray’s personal mark, and a wreath with the RX-93ff’s V-fin as a motif.
Gundam Park Fukuoka was announced September 2021 as a new Gundam-themed entertainment complex developed and managed by Bandai Namco Amusement Inc. and Bandai Spirits, based around the RX-93ff Nu Gundam statue at Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport FUKUOKA. The facility officially opened April 25, 2022.
Located on the fourth floor of Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport FUKUOKA in Hakata-ku, Fukuoka City, Gundam Park Fukuoka is stated to be the birth of a new Gundam entertainment complex where information, merchandise, sports entertainment, and amusement of the Gundam series are gathered in one place.
The facility consists of three areas: Gundam Side-F— is an area that provides various Gundam information and goods, VS PARK with G— a sports facility where guests experience fun Japanese game show-esque activities, and namco— an area where guests can enjoy arcade and crane games.
Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury is directed by Kiznaiver‘s Hiroshi Koyabashi, and penned by Code Geass scribe, Ichiro Ohkouchi. The tagline of the series is “This witch…rides a Gundam”. The series began broadcast October 2, 2022 on twenty-eight of MBS and TBS TV networks on their 5pm “Nichigo” anime block, as well as simulcasted internationally. The Bandai Namco Group announced late September at their Gundam Conference Autumn 2022 that the Witch from Mercury‘s first cour broadcast will be completed in December and the series will resume with its second cour in April 2023.
