Gundam meets Romance of the Three Kingdoms in the upcoming SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden project, whose official website and English-subbed promo video went live earlier today. Launching in spring 2019 and featuring the SD Gundam franchise’s trademark super-deformed style mecha, SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden is set to receive an animation, manga and – of course – model range.
Sangoku Soketsuden’s sci-fi storyline puts an Attack on Titan spin on the ever-popular Romance of the Three Kingdoms setting, with the mysterious Yellow Zombie Virus ravaging the world and forcing the survivors to live inside fortified cities for protection. And under powerful lord Dong Zhuo Providence Gundam’s tyrannical rule, even these havens are no longer truly safe. As chaos descends, young heroes Liu Bei Unicorn Gundam, Guan Yu Nu Gundam and Zhang Fei God Gundam swear an oath to save the world…
Add Cao Cao Wing Gundam as ‘the young CEO of Blue Wing Corporation and leader of the Wei Area’ and Sun Jian Gundam Astray as ‘head of the distribution guild Red Tiger’, and Sangoku Soketsuden is all set to take us back to the world of Luo Guanzhong’s famous historical novel, whose colourful cast of heroes and villains have garnered a place in Western pop culture thanks to Koei Tecmo’s long-running Dynasty Warriors series. The SD Gundam franchise has also drawn from the Three Kingdoms well before, with Sunrise’s SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors adapting the story in 2010-11.
