Bandai Namco’s hobby business subsidiary, Bandai Spirits has teased a new Gundam Frame to join their High Grade Iron-Blooded Orphans: Urðr-Hunt line of Gundam model kits during their “Hobby Next Phase 2021 Autumn” product showcase.
The silhouette of the unnamed Gundam Frame mobile suit greatly resembles one of the teaser illustrations for Urðr-Hunt, drawn by mecha animation director Hiroshi Arisawa in 2019.
Developed by Bandai Namco and Sunrise BEYOND, Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans: Urðr-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. Urðr-Hunt will feature anime and gameplay components, with staff members from the original series such as Tatsuyuki Nagai and Masaru Yokoyama returning to their roles for the spin-off game.
Announced in 2019, Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans G is a new smartphone app set to release spring 2022 where players can re-experience seasons one and two of the TV series through gameplay and the spin off story, Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans: Urðr-Hunt.
A special edition of Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans will air to coincide with the release of Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans G, totaling nine episodes and will feature part of Urðr-Hunt.
