The official Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Twitter account has released another new illustration of a mobile suit that appears in the spin-off, Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans: Urðr Hunt. The mobile suit illustration is drawn by mecha animation director Hiroshi Arisawa. The mobile suit will be fully revealed during the next information release.
The official account is also celebrating Urðr Hunt‘s promotional video topping 2 million views.
Mobile Suit Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans: Urðr Hunt was announced last January at the Iron-Blooded Orphans series “3rd anniversary ‘THE REFLECTION'” event as a spin off to the main series in the form of a smartphone app that will combine anime and game elements. The main mobile suit is the Gundam Hajiroboshi and the story is described as:
Gjallarhorn’s political intervention into the Arbrau central parliament escalated into an armed conflict using mobile suits. The incident was brought to an end by Tekkadan, a group of boys who came from Mars.
News of Tekkadan’s exploits has also reached the ears of Wistario Afam, a youth born and raised at the Radonitsa Colony near Venus. Venus, which lost to Mars in the contest for development, is a remote frontier planet in which the four great economic blocs show little interest. It is now used only as a penal colony for criminals, whose inhabitants don’t even have IDs.
Then Wistario, who hopes to change the status quo of this homeland, encounters a girl who claims to be the guide to the Urdr-Hunt.
