In the latest issue of License! Global, a preview for Pacific Rim 2 was featured which essentially gives us our first look at what we can only assume to the be film’s three primary Jaegers – the giant mechs used to defend Humanity from Kaiju. The names for these Jaegers are still unknown, but the blue one has a very Gipsy Danger aesthetic to it. If you recall, last month we reported that Pacific Rim: Uprising might feature an upgraded Gipsy Danger mech – it would seem we were correct!
The update on the Jaeger designs came from License Global, and hearkens to a rousing good time of mecha-versus-Kaiju battles for viewers to enjoy. It’s definitely going to be a long wait for Del Toro fans so make sure you check back with us frequently as we report in on the film’s production.
