Watch The Mass Effect: Paragon Lost Teaser
Lost amid the din of the controversial (and terrible) ending of Mass Effect 3 is the fact that like it or not – and we probably will! – there’s still going to be a Mass Effect movie. No, not the live action film which I will bet any takers 10 bucks is the way of the Uncharted movie, which is to say it is never gonna happen. I’m talking about Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, the animated feature film due out sometime later this year.
A new teaser has been released showing off concept art and still from the film, and for your enjoyment, here it is.
Honestly, I’m looking forward to this. Mass Effect 3 has a lot of problems – mainly starting in the last 10 minutes – but many things I assumed would suck turned out to be pretty great, particularly James Vega, who ended up being my favorite new character. (Granted, it’s not a difficult call between FPJ and Jessica Chobot). Produced jointly by Bioware and Texas-based FUNimation, the James Vega-focused anime is set prior to the events of Mass Effect 3. No doubt we’ll see him nicknaming people, doing pull ups and shooting things. And I approve.
