Mass Effect N7 Day panel announcement sets fan tongues wagging

Heavy Grunt.

A Mass Effect N7 Day panel is set for this weekend - and fans are crossing their fingers for a reveal of the heavily-rumoured Mass Effect Trilogy remaster.

Rumours of a remaster were stoked when an Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition book popped up for pre-order in July. Sporting a 23rd February 2021 release date, this new book includes hundreds of never-before-seen works of art, according to its description on the likes of Amazon and elsewhere.

Now, Jennifer Hale, aka FemShep, tweeted to announce a panel to celebrate N7 Day set for 7pm UK time this Saturday, 7th November. What's interesting is the panel has many of the actors who played the characters of the Mass Effect crew, including Mark Meer (Male Shep), Steve Blum (Grunt), Kimberly Brooks (Ashley Williams), Raphael Sbarge (Kaidan Alenko), Courtenay Taylor (Jack), Alix Wilton Regan (Samantha Traynor), William Salyers (Mordin Solus), D.C. Douglas (Legion), and Ali Hillis (Liara T'Soni), as well as BioWare developers Karin Weekes and Patrick Weekes.

That's pretty much the old crew of the Normandy, isn't it? Now why would they all get back together for a panel, then? Perhaps they just fancy a chat. Or perhaps N7 Day 2020 is finally the time for EA to unveil the Mass Effect Trilogy remaster that's pretty much an open secret at this point.
