Mass Effect 3 anime prequel gets trailer

From legendary Ghost in the Shell studio.

BioWare has revealed the first trailer for Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, an anime prequel to Mass Effect 3.

The film will detail the earlier career of N7-wannabe James Vega, the beefcake soldier who hung around your cargo bay and you never took out on missions.

Paragon Lost is being created by prolific anime studio Production I.G, the talent behind the Ghost in the Shell series and hundreds of other video game and movie projects, including most of the Tales series.

The story details Vega's fight against the Collectors, the insectoid-like enemies Shepard squashed at the end of Mass Effect 2.

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost will be available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray in November. How does it look? Well, the first trailer lies below.
