As the title says, it was scheduled to be aired in the summer by Satelight. Really looking forward to it.
“Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse” – TV Broadcast Set for Summer (http://www.moetron.com/2012/02/18/muv-luv-alternative-total-eclipse-tv-broadcast-set-for-summer/)

Synopsis:
In the year 1973, alien species known as BETA (Beings of Extra Terrestrial origin which is Adversary of human race) invaded Earth, after wiping out human settlements on the Moon. 28 years later, they have already conquered and laid waste to most of the Eurasian continent and reduced the global population to one billion. As previous military strategies and tactics were catastrophically ineffective against the BETA, the human race began to develop piloted robot weapons called "Tactical Surface Fighters" (TSFs).

Thus in 2001, elite pilots around the world start to gather at a UN base in Alaska named Yukon to participate in the Prominence Project. This project is a multinational effort handled by the United Nations on research and development of TSFs against BETA, and the job of the pilots are to test the prototypes, which occasionally involves pitting one against another.

Second Lieutenant Yuuya Bridges is a maverick and top pilot in the US armed services with a disdain towards things Japan, due to his Japanese father leaving him and his mother. Assigned to Yukon by exasperated superiors keen on sending him away, among pilots of various nationalities, he may come to grips with his blood heritage...

Total Eclipse is set in the same world as Alternative, at Alaska's Yukon base, test site 18, where first-class staff from all over the world gather to work on new Tactical Surface Fighters.

The main characters are engineers and pilots and it features many TSFs that failed to show up in Alternative.

It's the same setting and basically same characters (aside from the main). It's like the story being told from a different perspective and some untold stories from the original MLA.

Don't worry. It is deep and dark. Not sure if it's heartwarming in Total Eclipse though.

yeah, i can imagine it, since it's MuvLuv, and i think i can see the plot after seeing each character's expression. :D
