Right Stuf and Sunrise have just announced that their upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam Part 1 will be available on March 1, 2016. Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is the sequel of the original Mobile Suit Gundam series. Both editions will be available for pre-order from February 2, 2016. Right Stuf provided a synopsis of the series:
The Earth Federation Stands victorious, but are they still on the right side?
In Zeta Gundam, we see the future world of the Universal Century through a dark mirror. Having defeated the Zeon menace, the Earth Federation has itself become cruel and oppressive. A new generation of Gundam mobile suits is created not to fight for peace, but to punish the enemies of the state, and yesterday’s villains must become today’s heroes in order to balance the scales of justice. When a young civilian named Kamille Bidan is caught up in the rebellion, he little suspects the price he will pay in the fight for freedom.
The series comes from Yoshiyuki Tomino, the original creator of the Gundam franchise. The releases will feature remastered video and the original Ocean Group English dub. Episodes 1-25 will be presented in the original 4:3 aspect ratio.
The DVD edition will feature English Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo audio, Japanese Mono audio and English subtitles. It has a suggested retail price of $59.99 USD. The Blu-ray edition will feature English LPCM Stereo audio, Japanese LPCM Mono audio and English subtitles. This edition has a suggested retail price of $74.99 USD. On-disc extras for both releases will include the first two textless opening animation sequences.
