Today at their Virtual Momocon Panel, RightStuf and Nozomi Entertainment announced that they will be releasing Gundam Build Divers to Blu-Ray in North America! The 2018 anime series wasn’t previously announced by Nozomi like other Gundam series Blu-Rays so this is quite a surprise to fans. Also a surprise is to see Nozomi Entertainment producing this release as the series was streamed on Funimation Now. This had led to fan speculation that Funimation would release the Blu-Ray as they had done for Gundam: Iron Blood Orphans. The set will feature all 25 episodes, the Bang Zoom English Dub and a plethora of bonus features! Check out all the details below!

Nozomi Entertainment describes the series as follows:
Gunpla Battle Nexus Online (GBN) is a new network game that lets people enjoy a variety of missions using Gunpla in a virtual cyberspace dimension. Middle-school students Riku Mikami and Yukio Hidaka dive together into this vast world, and Momoka Yashiro, their soccer friend, decides she wants to join in as well! Becoming “Divers,” or inhabitants of GBN, they meet a mysterious girl named Sarah who has an amazing sensitivity to Gunpla. They begin playing alongside her, but…
There are many other famous Divers, starting with Kyoya Kujo, the champion whom Riku admires. Multiple Divers can join to form a team called a “force.” Meanwhile, the game is disrupted by Mass-Divers who use unofficial tools called Break Decals. Through many encounters and experiences, Riku and his friends will build not only Gunpla, but their own adventures as well!
The Blu-Ray can be pre-ordered now from RightStufAnime for $48.74. Stay tuned to Hero Club for more Gundam Blu-Ray news and more in the future!
