News of this came out during the Gundam Conference Summer 2024, which took place on June 25, 2024. The name of the gaiden will be Mobile Fighter G Gundam: Tenchi Tengaku. Bandai Namco may or may not reveal an official English name for it later. There is also a new key visual showing Domon and Master Asia fighting side-by-side while what appears to be a new villain smirks down at them.

As for the plot of the gaiden, it’ll focus on the appearance of the Dark Shuffle, a group of five mysterious Gundams, who show up right before the finals of the 13th Gundam Fight. For reference, the the 13th Gundam Fight is the Gundam Fight Domon and his friends participate in during the show. Yasuhiro Imagawa, who was the director for Mobile Suit G Gundam, is the one who’ll be penning this work.

Mobile Suit G Gundam aired from 1994 to 1995. It takes place in the Future Century. In this timeline, most humans have escaped for space colonies, though these space colonies are still separated by nationality. Every four years, this is a Gundam Fight in which representatives will fight until only one pilot is left standing. The winner’s country can then rule the world for the next four years. It is one of the zanier Gundam shows in the series.

Mobile Fighter G Gundam is available for streaming on Crunchyroll. The text-based gaiden for Mobile Fighter G Gundam will come out on the G Gundam website from July 5, 2024.
