We're well aware of the unfortunate date this announcement lands on, but it's the real deal. The Shin Japan Heroes Universe project has announced a new product project is in the works. Bandai's announcement comes with a new promo showcasing the SJHU mascots, Godzilla, Ultraman, EVA-01 and Kamen Rider, up against a new, unknown foe. You can watch the ad here:
There's no date for when the product project will be announced, so keep a sharp eye out for the next SJHU event.
The Shin Japan Heroes Universe is a project based around the four tokusatsu projects by legendary, Japanese Academy Award winning director Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi. The directors inadvertently began this journey writing and directing the 2017 Japanese Academy Award Best Picture winner, Shin Godzilla. Anno also directed Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 (Shin Evangelion in Japan), the fourth and final film in the Rebuild of Evangelion series. The movie was Japan's highest grossing of 2021 and won a Japanese Academy Award for Best Animate Film. Anno also wrote the screenplay for Shin Ultraman, directed by Shinji Higuchi, which went on to win four Japanese Academy Awards this past March. Anno also directed Shin Kamen Rider, which is currently in Japanese theaters.
The films have a loose continuity between them with reoccuring actors Yutaka Takenouchi appearing in Shin Godzilla, Shin Ultraman and Shin Kamen Rider, as well as Shin Ultraman star Takumi Saitoh appearing in Shin Kamen Rider. The three films also call monsters GULs (Giant Unidentified Lifeforms) and share similar fictional weaponry (MOPIIs).
