The combined fourth and fifth 2020 issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine revealed on Monday that Rie Kanou will launch a new manga titled Kidō Senshi Gundam Bandiera (Mobile Suit Gundam Bandiera) in the magazine's eighth issue, which will ship on January 20. Hajime Yatate and Yoshiyuki Tomino are credited with the original work.

The new manga is part of the 40th anniversary celebrations for Gundam this year. The new "epic" manga will cover the Gundam franchise "from an angle not seen before."
