UC NexT 0100, a new project set after Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack and Gundam Unicorn has announced the first of three series in the line-up during the new Gundam series announcement press conference held on Friday. Titled Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative (NT), the movie will screen in Japanese theaters this November. The ticket will be pre-sold during the premiere of final episode of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin on May 5.
It's the 0097 year of the Universal Century and one year after the opening of the Federation's known threat: Laplace's Box. Despite the revelation of a charter acknowledging Newtype's rights and existence, there were no significant changes that have occurred. The "Laplace Conflict" has appeared to have ended along with the collapse of "The Sleeves," the remnants of a Neo Zeon faction. In the final battle, two full-Psycoframe mobile suits will be showing the power that exceeds human knowledge. Known to be the white unicorn and the black lion, these two suits were sealed away from human consciousness and should have been forgotten. However, RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, a mobile suit that went missing two years ago has made its appearance on Earth once again: the Golden Phenex.
