BioWare, Electronic Arts and FUNimation have today announced that there will be an anime feature film of the much loved Mass Effect 2 in North America.
FUNimation are an anime titan in the USA, with the vast majority of all anime released in the UK at one point passing through FUNimation USA. Additionally, FUNimation are one of the few studios left in the US, aside from Disney, that actively dub over anime on a regular basis, so they are the perfect choice to link with to get an anime feature film moving.
Traditionally speaking, anime has to be created in Japan to be classified as anime and many fans will still state this to be true. However, FUNimation have signed a deal with T.O. Entertainment Inc in Tokyo who will co-produce the film.
Executives at FUNimation are stating that the production for the film has already begun and the release is schedule for Summer 2012 in the USA. This means that we’re likely to see the film, if a joint distribution deal is not worked out, roughly the end of 2012 or the first quarter of 2013 in the UK if usual anime trends are followed.
It’s highly likely that the deal will be done with Manga Entertainment, the UK’s biggest anime distributor as they currently hold the primary deal for UK distribution with FUNimation in the UK. Currently, there is no word from any UK anime distributor regarding Mass Effect 2 The Movie.
