Bandai Namco and Sunrise have released a new trailer for Gundam Reconguista in G III: The Legacy of Space, the third part of the Reconguista in G compilation film series.
The new trailer features all of the trademark Gundam qualities, including intricately animated space battles, complex political intrigue and plenty of pontificating about the purpose and meaning of war. Gundam Reconguista in G III: The Legacy of Space is part three of a five-part movie series that retells the events of the 2014 Reconguista in G TV anime series with some new animation and story details. Reconguista in G marked the return of original Gundam series creator and director Yoshiyuki Tomino to the franchise after a fifteen year absence. In addition to Tomino, the series also featured the talents of character designer Kenichi Yoshida, who is best known for their work on Eureka Seven and Overman King Gainer.

Reconguista in G is set in the Regild Century, an era of the Gundam timeline that is thousands of years after the events of the Universal Century, which is the era where the original Gundam series, as well as more recent continuations such Gundam Unicorn and the recently released Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway, take place. The series tells the story of Bellri Zenam, a pilot charged with the protection of the Capital Tower, a massive orbital elevator that is now Earth's primary means of transporting people and supplies between the surface and outer space. Bellri eventually becomes the pilot of G-Self, a highly advanced mobile suit and the key element in an upcoming conflict that threatens to plunge the world into another dark age.
The original Gundam Reconguista In G TV anime series is available on Blu-ray from Sunrise. No international release date has been announced for Gundam Reconguista in G III: The Legacy of Space.
