GUNDAM GLOBAL CHALLENGE and Evolving G will open "GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA" for about one year from Thursday, October 1, 2020, in cooperation with Yokohama as part of the "Mobile Suit Gundam 40th Anniversary Project". In addition, in July and August, a limited program that can be observed from the special viewing deck before opening will be held.
"Gundam GLOBAL CHALLENGE" is a project that has been underway since 2014 to realize the dream of moving a full-scale 18m Gundam to open to the public. While soliciting a wide range of ideas and plans, researchers, engineers, creators and other professionals from all over the world came together to discuss what could be done now, and repeated design and verification. As a result, "GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA" will be opened at Yamashita Wharf in Yokohama for one year from October 2020. Why don't you experience the lively fusion of Gundam, a content that has attracted a lot of attention from abroad, Japanese manufacturing, and excellent technology?
