Mass Effect gets Anime Movie Deal

Home Video adaptation of the Sci-Fi game scheduled for release in 2012

Posted on
BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts, and FUNimation Entertainment have announced an agreement to create an anime feature film adapted from Mass Effect. Tokyo-based anime and international feature film production company T.O Entertainment has signed on as a co-producer on the video.

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

"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.”

"It is thanks to the enormous and passionate Mass Effect fan base that this movie is made possible," said Gen Fukunaga, President & CEO of FUNimation. “With production underway on the Dragon Age video, we are excited to team up with another BioWare team to add an exciting new chapter to this vast sci-fi world.”

Production of the Mass Effect anime movie has already begun. Digital and home video releases are scheduled for the summer of 2012.

Mass Effect 2 is available now for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
