Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise Releases Season 2 Poster

Mobile Suit: Gundam has long presented numerous different interpretations and realities for the decades old mech anime franchise. From Gundam Wing to Mobile Suit: Gundam to G Gundam, the series has found its strength in creating brand new mech suits throughout the years as well as interesting new premises to use them in. Perhaps there is no bigger representation of this than the series of Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise which takes the idea of Gundam and places it into a digital battle environment where the mechs are clashed against one another to prove who is the strongest around. Now, in anticipation for the second season of the series, the franchise has released a brand new poster!

The second season will be releasing in April of this year, promising to follow brand new adventures for our favorite "Divers" as they clash their mechs against others in a digital world. With the 40th anniversary of Gundam giving us a number of new events and spectacles for the long running franchise, 2020 will give us a Gundam satellite, this brand new season, as well as some new releases in the medium of Gundam plastic models, dubbed Gunplas!

Twitter User AIR_News01 shared the brand new poster, touting that the second season will be released on April 9th and give us adventures and Gundams that are unique to this outside of the box anime series:
