Watch: The Gundam vs Hello Kitty crossover is coming

Gundam vs. Hello Kitty

Okay, this has got to be the most mind-blowing collaboration of the year – bizarre yet so cool. In celebration of Gundam's 40th and Hello Kitty's 45th anniversary, the two iconic franchises are facing off for an epic battle that's never been seen before. A trailer has just been released to not only prove that this crossover is real, but also to announce an upcoming special event scheduled for sometime in 2020.

Details are scarce at the moment, but the good news is, you can partake in this special occasion. First you are asked to pick a team (either Team Gundam or Team Hello Kitty) before collecting points via the Line app or through purchasing items at designated stores. These points will then earn you a chance to win tickets to the special Gundam vs Hello Kitty crossover event next year as well as various prizes. 

In other news, Japan is sending Gundam into space for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. For more information on the Gundam vs Hello Kitty project, visit the official site (only in Japanese).
