Special Collaboration with Kunio Okawara
We’re pleased to announce a project with famed Japanese mechanical designer Kunio Okawara. The “0-47 Project” involves an Okawara-designed tank to be included in World of Tanks Blitz. Okawara’s career spans decades and includes many treasured works, most famously the Gundam series, so we’re thrilled to see how that experience and talent manifests on the battlefield.
More about Kunio Okawara
A pioneer in animation and design, Okawara redefined the concept of the “giant robot” in 1979 with a sketch of the original RX-78 Gundam. Since then, he has contributed to numerous Gundam sequels and spinoffs. North American fans may be most familiar with his work on Gundam Wing, but Okwara's work has appeared elsewhere on TV, film, and even in car commercials.
What is the "O-47 Project?”
It's so secret we’re keeping it under lock and key -- all we can say now is that it’s the codename for Okawara’s tank design. More details will be revealed this weekend at the 2016 Tokyo Game Show.
