Stone Bridge Press tweeted earlier a plea for fans to not pirate Mobile Suit Gundam because a new edition will be out early next year. I thought this was the manga version, but according to their site, the only Mobile Suit Gundam work they’ve published is a novelization of the series, so it looks like we’re getting a nice new novel of the series. I haven’t seen the original Gundam (only Wing and Seed), but I have a feeling there’s a reason that the series keeps getting new versions. I certainly intend to check it out.
edit: It’s up for preorder on Amazon here. MSRP is US$15.95, but Amazon has it on sale for US$10.63 currently. Looks like it’s going to be a whopping 560 pages! Release date is currently April 10, 2012.
