'Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Vol. 3' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Mon Feb 14, 2011 at 08:00 AM PST by

The third volume of the anime series will be released on Blu-ray this April.

Bandai Entertainment is prepping 'Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Vol. 3' for Blu-ray on April 7.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtracks (Japanese and English), and special features include: Story So Far, Promotional Clips, TV Commercials, Character & MS Highlights, and Textless Ending.

In order to recapture Banagher and the Unicorn Gundam, the Federation Forces launch an assault on Palau, the stronghold of the Sleeves. Thanks to an ECOAS sabotage operation and the firepower of the Nahel Argama's hyper mega particle cannon, they succeed in sealing off Palau's military port, and Banagher takes advantage of the confusion to escape with the Unicorn Gundam. During his escape he encounters Mineva, who is riding with Riddhe in the mobile suit Delta Plus. Accepting her desire to go to Earth and seek a resolution to the conflict, Banagher entrusts her fate to Riddhe's hands. Banagher hurries back to the Nahel Argama, but Marida and her Kshatriya are standing in his way. During his fierce battle with the Cyber-Newtype Marida, the Unicorn Gundam's NT-D system activates, finally releasing its hidden power.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.98, though fans can save $20 by pre-ordering directly from Bandai here.
