This exhibition will be the first Zoids event in nearly 20 years. It will feature the largest display of information about the series’ world, including production materials and prototypes focusing on the creation of the toys, multimedia presentations about Zoids anime and manga, photo spots, and a merchandise sales corner. Some of the exhibits will be replaced during the exhibition period.

The exhibition will be divided in two phases, with the first on lasting through October 7-15, 2023, and the second from October 16-22, 2023. Cards from the Zoids Battle Card Game will be offered as admission bonus, and different designs will be offered during each phase. Additionally, a model kit reproduction of the AZ-04 Shield Liger from the first generation of the Zoids anime series will be available for pre-order.

The last Zoids project to appear was the Zoids Wild anime, which started airing in Japan on July 2018.
