BioWare has announced it is collaborating with FUNimation Entertainment on a Mass Effect-based anime feature film, production of which is already underway.
Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson will serve in the same capacity on the film, which is being co-produced by T.O Entertainment, Inc. FUNimation is the same company responsible for theDragon Age anime movie that's currently in the works for release later this year.
"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 Hudson in a press release. "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."
The Mass Effect anime is expected to be released during summer 2012. Like the Dragon Age anime, it'll be a direct-to-video affair, so don't make plans to see it in theaters.
