Nozomi & RightStufAnime Announce New Gundam Ultra Edition Blu-Ray Sets

Today, during their 2018 Anime Expo panel, RightStufAnime and Nozomi Entertainment announced two new Mobile Suit Gundam Ultra Editions for release in 2018 and 2019. Pricing, dates, and pre-order information is still forthcoming, but for now we have the basic announcement information.

 

Mobile Fighter G Gundam Ultra Edition

The long anticipated North American Blu-Ray release of Mobile Fighter G Gundam is nearly upon us. Nozomi announced this title some time ago before Gundam UC, Gundam AGE and Gundam 00 were announced; yet, those titles have all seen release with no further info on G Gundam until today. We have learned that G Gundam is not only releasing this Holiday 2018, but that it will be released in an Ultra Edition collector’s set as well as individual Blu-Ray sets. It has been stated previously that this release will include the Japanese Audio, as well as the early 2000s Bandai Entertainment English dub. Stay tuned as pre-orders for this release will probably appear in the near future.

 

Mobile Suit Gundam SEED & Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny

The other announcement of the day is Nozomi Entertainment’s acquisition of the license for Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny. These two series were originally released by Bandai Entertainment in the early 2000s in individual volumes, as well as complete series sets. While Nozomi has not said specific details yet, such as rather both SEED and SEED Destiny will be in one Ultra Edition together, or in their own Ultra Edition sets. Fans are hoping that Gundam SEED Astray, Gundam SEED Stargazer, and the Gundam SEED Special Edition compilation OVAs will be included in these sets as they were never released by Bandai Entertainment previously. The SEED and SEED Destiny Blu-Rays will be released separately as well and will be using the HD Remaster versions of both series. The standard Blu-Rays will contain the new SEED and SEED Destiny English dubs that are currently being produced by NYAV Post. Also a bonus for the Ultra Editions, the original Bandai Entertainment SEED and SEED Destiny English Dubs will be included. However, they will be in SD quality due to the HD Remaster of the series having several formatting changes due to the remaster process. The original English dub will not be released on its own by Nozomi Entertainment. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny will be released in 2019.

 

That concludes the Gundam announcements for RightStufAnime and Nozomi Entertainment for this year’s Anime Expo. More information on both releases will be coming periodically over the next several months. Stay tuned to Hero Club for future Gundam Blu-Ray news and more.
