With the end of Witch from Mercury back in July, Gundam fans have been hungry for more. Finally, a new Gundam anime is coming as Gundam Build Metaverse announced its October release date.

This won’t be a full-fledged Gundam anime entry though, as it’s a short web series composed of only three episodes.

Still, it should be a treat for franchise fans, especially for fans of the Gundam Build shows. That’s because this new anime is being released to celebrate the Build anniversary.

Since the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime, Gundam has become the biggest mecha franchise in the world. Not only does it have numerous anime entries, but it also has a wide array of games, model kits, and more.

Among these spinoff projects is Gundam Build, an anime series that’s specifically based on the Gunpla line of model kits.

This series started in 2013 with the Gundam Build Fighters anime, and it was soon followed up by more anime entries. There are even manga and light novel spinoffs for it.

With the original anime’s 10th anniversary coming soon, the special web anime Gundam Build Metaverse was revealed. It got a new trailer recently, which you can watch here:

Metaverse is a unique entry into the Build series as it features a metaverse element – think of it like a virtual reality space where users can engage in Gundam battles.

Aside from being made for the Build anniversary, the anime is also part of the Gundam Metaverse Project which has games, music, and other initiatives.
