Gundam Metaverse Production Team Reveals more Plan for Their Project

The 15 billion yen (130 million USD) Gundam Metaverse project will launch a test for its GunPla colony, which is a special place to have more fun with other Gundam enthusiasts.

In addition to the test opening of the "Gunpla Colony" in October, it was announced that an EC store would be built and a builder's notebook would be developed.

The "Gunpla Colony" Project will introduce the following...

■ EC Shop
An ecommerce store where you can buy real Gunpla in the Metaverse space. This provides value and shopping experiences unique to the Metaverse such as: Attractive product presentations and the ability to play Gunpla purchased as content in the Metaverse.

Gunpla scan progress
The Metaverse project team is also researching a Gunpla scanning service so fans can enjoy fan-made Gunpla not only as photos, but also as 3D models viewed in the Metaverse space.
Together with the Sony Group, they are researching high-quality scanning technology that uses smartphones and special scanning devices to scan even the smallest details from each GunPla that are being shared.

■ Automatic translation function and AI character "Mellow"
There is also an automatic translation feature in development that will allow Gundam fans around the world to communicate seamlessly, and a feature that can convert speech to text and text to speech.
Also, we are working hard to develop the AI ​​character  "Mellow" as a unique solution to create a space in the metaverse that will make people want to visit it every day.

Enhanced collaboration between Gundam Metaverse and Gundam Navi App

■ Expansion to the Mini Metaverse
Gundam Metaverse is under active development with PC as the primary device, but for everyday access and easy communication, they also plan to expand the capabilities of the "Mini Metaverse" which can be accessed through the Gundam Navi app.

■ Builder's Note
The project team is also developing a Builder's Note community feature aimed at connecting fans through Gunpla, which now has a closed test for some fans.
Builder's Note comes with features to post photos of your own Gunpla and add comments. In addition, the plan is to be able to record and manage Gunpla activity by reviewing the list of Gunpla product information for sale and linking the product information to your own publications.

The Gundam Metaverse also announced the GUNDAM NEXT FUTURE East / West / Digital, which is an online experience of the Gundam Next Future 2023 that will be held at the Tokyo: Shinjuku Sumitomo Building Triangle Square in October 2023.

The "Gundam Metaverse Project" is one of the three pillars of the "GUNDAM NEXT FUTURE -ROAD TO 2025-" project celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Gundam series and the 45th anniversary of Gunpla.

Further more, a 3-episode mini anime series called Gundam Build Metaverse was also announced to celebrate the Gundam Build franchise's 10th anniversary will also arrive in October 2023 to help promote the Metaverse project.
