It looks like the crossover event we never expected has finally happened this year. The world of Mobile Suit Gundam and Hello Kitty will be colliding in celebration of their 40th and 45th Anniversaries respectively.
Details are scarce at the moment but according to CrunchyRoll, this “showdown project” will pit both popular franchises against one another both online and in real life:
Although the full details of “Gundam vs. Hello Kitty” have not yet been revealed, it is known that the project involves a LINE campaign where fans can vote for their favorite characters from each franchise and earn prizes, real-life promotions with restaurants and retail stores featuring this new rivalry, a “real mystery solving game” sponsored by SCRAP that is scheduled for Summer of 2019, and an animated preview video in which Kitty and the Gundam crew meet.
