Earlier today, the official Mobile Suit Gundam NT (Narrative) anime website updated with new details on the title. The first cast members,a key visual, and several stills were revealed.

The 30-second trailer cuts between various action scenes, as Hiroyuki Sawano’s theme song (vocals by mpi & Gemie) plays as a background track.

Sunrise describes Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative as:
U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.”
Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.
The conflict later dubbed the “Laplace Incident” is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people’s consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten.
However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix… named Phenex.
