This is where old news gets placed to !
- Unsure how old this is.
The official website for Gundam Crisis has opened its story, download, and “Gundam Mania II” shop sections with more details on this amusement park attraction that will feature the first 18-meter (59-feet), life-size Gundam model. The attraction will open at Fuji-Q HighLand, the theme park located at the foot of Japan’s Mt. Fuji. It will include all-new 3D CG mechanical animation and 2D character animation from the same Sunrise staffers that worked on Fuji-Q’s the Ride attraction, the Gundam Evolve DVD videos, and the SD Gundam Force television series.
The story takes place during the first Mobile Suit Gundam series’ One Year War, when the title Mobile Suit robot RX-78-2 Gundam is hangared at the Solomon space fortress for an upgrade. The Earth Federation engineer Dr. Mosk Han is applying magnetic coating to Gundam’s joints to improve its maneuverability. The attraction visitors play Han’s team members as they are given mission objectives on “VQ Divider” handheld digital tablets and ordered to rush the Gundam’s upgrade in time for the battle “outside.” Only the visitors who complete the upgrade mission can enter the Gundam’s cockpit.

Yoshikazu Yasuhiko Is Interested in a Mobile Suit Gundam Remake
August 13, 2017
In response to a question of whether the ongoing Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin prequel anime series will eventually continue on to the main One-Year War story of the first Gundam anime, Yasuhiko replied "I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't do it. The length of the story is no joke, though." He also stated that the staff feel the same way.
Daily Sports reported that there is a "big project" or projects underway to celebrate the anime's 40th anniversary in 2019, but did not state whether this project would be a remake.
Yasuhiko stated that he still has some regrets regarding the 1979 series, and how its scheduling and budget issues prevented it from reaching its best form. "The first series is always #1 to me. But now, even if you want to show it to young people, you can't."
Yasuhiko worked as an animation director and the character designer of the original series, as well as the character designer of the sequels Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam F91, and Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. He later launched the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga in 2001, and ended it in 2011. The manga is a retelling of the original series' story, with some of the details changed. The manga served as the basis for the eventual original video anime (OVA) series of the same name, which began in 2015 and tells a prequel story. Yasuhiko is credited as the chief director for the OVA project. The fifth installment in the series opens in Japan on September 2.
