Bandai Visual and Sunrise have another priced-down release on the schedule of their Gundam properties with Mobile Suit Gundam: MS Igloo set. The nine-episode series is set for a February 27th, 2020 on Blu-ray only where it’ll be priced at 12,000 yen, which is about half of what it was previously. This was solicited way back in June of 2019 and we now have a look at the packaging for it as it fits in with the current branding of the property as they work through the catalog.
It’ll have the original Japanese language track with English subtitles and will be spread over three discs. Extras for it include the clean opening and closing sequences.
The project was directed by Takashi Imanishi and was released by Right Stuf in North America. Check out our review of it.
Plot concept: Universal Century 0079. With the outbreak of the One Year War, the Principality of Zeon seeks new weapons and technology to counter the numerical advantage of the powerful Earth Federation. For this purpose, Zeon assembles some of its finest engineers and officers to form the 603rd Technical Evaluation Unit, stationing them aboard the converted civilian vessel Jotunheim. Their mission is to test new prototype weapons, from long-range artillery, to tanks, to mobile pods. The crew of the Jotunheim evaluate these experimental weapons with care as they are drawn ever closer to the battlefront. But when the Federation begins its counteroffensive, surpassing Zeon’s mobile suits with its development of the Gundam and the mass-produced GM, even more devastating new weapons are needed. Bear witness to a side of the One Year War that until now has been shrouded in secrecy.
