Announced back with the release of Macross: Do You Remember Love? on Blu-ray, the new movie Macross FB7: Listen to My Song! premiered its first trailer at Saturday's Macross 30th Anniversary event on the Namco-Bandai stage at the Tokyo Game Show.
Macross FB7: Listen to My Song! is the first major crossover between any two Macross series — in this case 2008's wildly popular Macross Frontier and 1994's Macross 7. The film is reported to be reusing a fair amount of remastered footage from Macross 7 which will then be combined with newly animated Macross Frontier footage. Most of the voice actors from both series — both speaking and singing — will be returning to lend their talent as well.
While this trailer uses a fair amount of stock footage from both series, there are a few new scenes that may catch the eye of long-time fans. But best of all, the background music for the trailer is a new Fire Bomber (the fictional band of Macross 7) song, "Virgin Story", which was recorded just for the movie.
Macross FB7: Listen to My Song! will be released in Japanese theatres on October 20, 2012.
