Mass Effect anime film for summer 2012

Will fans of Shepard flock to see it?

A Mass Effect anime feature film is currently being produced for a summer 2012 airing, BioWare has announced.

FUNimation, an American distributor of Japanese animation, and Japanese production company T.O. Entertainment will co-produce the project.

The Mass Effect animation will spin a familiar tale of space exploration rife with dangerous aliens and mysterious planets.

BioWare's Mass Effect overlord Casey Hudson has signed on as executive producer of the film.

"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," commented Casey Hudson.

FUNimation already has production under way on a Dragon Age film, and is "excited" about adding "an exciting new chapter" to the Mass Effect universe.
