·1 min read

With the release date for Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury inching ever closer, Sunrise has now offered yet another teaser for some of its upcoming episodes while finally confirming its premiere date in Japan. Now scheduled to arrive at the beginning of October, the new Gundam arc will be set in an alternative timeline, dubbed "Ad Stellar." A free prologue over on YouTube sets up the premise of the series, introducing some of the main players in the imminent war as well as the Mobile Suits they'll pilot.

Unlike previous installments, The Witch From Mercury will finally introduce a female character as the main protagonist, Suletta Mercury. As expected, she'll be piloting the brand new Gundam Aerial, which, for the Gunpla fans, has already been released in model kit form.

For those interested, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury will premiere in Japan October 2, and simulcast outside of the country will also be available for the rest of the world.
