Some facts about Narrative so far, based on Gundam-nt.net info + things from the livestream:
  • This is kicking off an ongoing "UC Next 100" project that will presumably do what it sounds like, telling stories that lead into and take place in the second Universal Century. A chart they apparently weren't supposed to show indicated that Hathaway's Flash is another project they're developing for animation.
  • Narrative is due this November in Japan. No news about distribution elsewhere yet. It's not a TV series, it'll be a movie or maybe a short series like Unicorn or Thunderbolt.
  • Narrative is 1 year after the ending of Unicorn. The Sleeves are basically beaten, the Federation's been doing its best to cover up the "Laplace incident" and carry on. Typical decadent Federation leadership, dealing with problems by overlooking them.
  • The plot kicks off when a third Gundam Unicorn unit turns up - a gold one called Fenex, which may or may not be localized to Phoenix. It's built from psycho frame tech that was the subject of a test gone wrong in 0095 when the other Unicorn units were being developed. What could possibly go wrong?
  • The Gundam's existence is a problem for the Federation, so they put together a task force to hunt it down. The protagonist and his Narrative Gundam are deployed to be part of it. Narrative was a test unit for Amuro Ray's Nu Gundam (see Char's Counterattack) and can apparently be outfitted with different equipment.
  • The hero and his friends were there when Zeon's infamous colony drop destroyed Australia.
  • The Zeon MS was the precursor to Full Frontal's Sinanju. Prototypes vs an upgrade seems to be the theme here with the new MS.
