Mass Effect Anime Movie Announced

BioWare and Funimation are already working on the Dragon Age anime, but they have just announced an anime feature film based on Mass Effect. Tokyo-based T.O Entertainment, Inc. will be co-producing the animated film. We’re not sure if it’s going to follow Commander Shepard as he tries to save the galaxy. All we know is that it will “tell the tale of an epic science fiction adventure set in a vast universe filled with dangerous alien life and mysterious, uncharted planets.”

“Over the last few years, we have revealed different pieces of the Mass Effect world through different media. Extending the story through an anime medium is another amazing opportunity for us,” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer for the Mass Effect series. “Partnering with FUNimation ensures that we will bring this rich universe to life with the utmost quality and the same attention to detail that the Mass Effect games are known for.”

Casey Hudson of BioWare, executive producer of the Mass Effect series, FUNimation President and CEO Gen Fukunaga and Director of Original Entertainment Chris Moujaes and T.O Entertainment’s CEO Takeichi Honda and Yui Shibata will serve as executive producers.

Expect the Mass Effect anime to be available for digital and Blu-ray/DVD release in the summer of 2012.
