Gundam Evolution Gets Witch from Mercury Goodies

Gundam Evolution Witch from Mercury

The latest Mobile Suit Gundam series, The Witch from Mercury, made something of a splash with its debut this anime season. Team-based competitive game Gundam Evolution is ready to take advantage of that. Bandai Namco launched a promotional campaign to commemorate The Witch from Mercury in Gundam Evolution. The campaign will continue through December 27, 2022.

All a player has to do during that period is to log into Gundam Evolution and get Witch from Mercury cosmetic customization items. The four items will arrive in their in-game present box, free of charge. The customization items include a player profile icon featuring Suletta Mercury, and a pair of stamps. One stamp displays the Witch from Mercury poster. The other is a cutaway focusing on the head of the show’s signature mobile suit, Aerial. The last item is an ornament featuring the show’s logo. Ornaments hang off the in-game weapon, like a keychain.

Debuting in October 2022, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury takes place in a new alternate setting, where much of humanity has relocated to space colonies. Megacorporations exploit the people living planetside in places like Earth and Mercury. At the Asticassia School of Technology, the young scions of the most powerful corps engage in duels to determine key issues and resolve disputes. Into this milieu transfers Suletta Mercury, a naive girl from the backwater Mercury settlement. Along with her is her mobile suit, Aerial, which harbors mysterious abilities that might be connected to the forbidden “Gundam” technology.

Gundam Evolution is available on the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The Witch from Mercury streams on various services, including Crunchyroll, Netflix, and Disney+.
