Space Battleship Yamato 2199 IS GO!
The project will be headed by Nishizaki-san’s son Nishizaki Shoji and we’ve got the first trailer!
The full series will be launched on April 12th of 2012! The first two episodes of the show will be packaged together and shown in theaters as a 50 minute movie with the rest of the series being shown soon after on Japanese broadcast TV. From what I can see and what I’ve read on their official site, we’ll be getting a re-telling of the Journey to Iscandar storyline. Which makes me EXTREMELY excited.
Keep an eye on a fansub of this series to come to the Internet almost immediately after the first two are released. We’ll keep you up to date on where to get this show as it gets closer. Considering that the last America localized Yamato properties were almost 40 years ago, we can only hope that someone picks up the license.
