If you are a fan of the Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans series, here is a good news for you. The popular anime series is getting a spin-off for mobile as announced by Sunrise and Bandai Namco. Titled Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans – Urðr Hunt, the mobile game will be free-to-play for both Android and iOS.
The game will get a new story by the returning staff from anime series including director Tatsuyuki Nagai, character designer Yu Ito, Michinori Chiba and more. There will also be an “Original Mode” featuring appearances of famous series characters such as Mikazuki and Olga.
Here is the story overview (thanks, Gematsu):
Set in the year P.D. 323 (the same year as the anime’s story), Gjallarhorn’s political intervention into the Arbrau Central Parliament caused a conflict with the use of Mobile Suit military force. Tekkadan, a faction of young men from Mars brought the incident to an end.
Word of Tekkadan’s efforts even reached the ears of Wistario Apham, a boy born on the Ladonittsa Colony that floats above Venus. Venus, which was defeated by Mars in the recultivation race, is a remote planet that even the four major economies have shown no interest in. Inhabitants of the planet do not even carry IDs, and it is now only used as a place of exile for criminals.
Wistario wishes to change the current state of his birthplace. That is when a girl piloting a mech called “Urðr Hunt” appears before him.
So far there is no information on its release schedule and even the genre. More announcement might come soon, so stay tuned with us for the updates! You can also visit the official website for more details on the featured characters and mobile suits.
