New Mass Effect Prequel Anime Trailer Unveiled

If you can't get enough of the Mass Effect universe, you've probably been anxiously waiting for the Legendary Pictures live action film. Since the film is still a whiles away from hitting the big screen, you may have to turn to Funimation's anime film adaptation to get your Mass Effect fix. After having a release date pushed back several times, it looks like the film is finally going to hit retail shelves this December.

Titled Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, the anime takes place sometime between the stories of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. The film is centered around James Vega, one of the crew mates from Mass Effect 3. The beefy super-soldier will be voiced by actor Freddie Prinze Jr., reprising his role from the Mass Effect 3 game.

Here's the official synopsis from Funimation:

"[Mass Effect: Paragon Lost] follows the early career of Alliance Marine, James Vega. Vega leads an elite Special Forces squad into battle against a mysterious alien threat known as The Collectors. Stationed at a colony in a remote star system, Vega and his soldiers must protect the civilians from a ruthless invasion determined to capture the population for unknown purposes. Learn more about the Mass Effect universe with an unprecedented glimpse into the haunted past of Mass Effect's newest hero!"

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray December 28. Which characters would you like to see in the upcoming film?
