Now it's no secret that the Anime world is full of “ western” games getting anime spinoffs: Halo, Dante's Inferno
..More recently news of Dragon Age making the jump. The market is certainly open to it, and fans more or less seem to love seeing the anime films as opposed to live action ( which that ALWAYS plays out well ) /sarcasm.
Apparently EA/Bioware are far from finished when it comes to pumping money out of their titles. Recent situations around their games asside. Recently it was announced that Bioware was teaming up with FUNimation, T.O Entertainment and Production I.G to produce a Mass Effect anime. Very little was shown other than teasers of concept work.
What can be best gathered by what was shown is that the series more or less follows James Vega, the Alliance marine we meet at the start of Mass Effect 3. It's fairly obvious that the series has to take place “ before” the third game, for obvious if not absurdly silly reasons that many just can't seem to understand why it was done as such. While I'm happy to see both this, and DA get new life, I admit a part of me dreads seeing what may come of the stories and characters as it relates to thegames lore...even though the developers did a pretty good job throwing that out the window ontheir own. Regardless of how anyone feels at the moment, it's going to happen. No official release dates have been set, though speculation leans to later this year or early next year. That is if the Mayans don't kill us all first.
