"First of all, we would like to express our deepest condolences to all the victims of this new Coronavirus infection.
We are currently preparing for the release of "Mobile Suit Gundam Flashlight Hathaway", scheduled for July 23, 2020 (Thursday / holidays), but in Japan, we have decided to postpone the publication date due to the spread of the new infectious disease. We sincerely apologize to everyone who was looking forward to seeing the feature film.
As soon as a new date is established, we will inform you on the official Mobile Suit Gundam Flash Hathaway website. Please note that the Mubichike Card advance ticket (1st and 2nd) - already purchased - will still be usable despite the postponement, therefore it is recommended to keep it carefully until the film is released ".
