Kotaku’s posted up some lovely promo pics from the upcoming anime Halo Legends. There’s one from each of the studios involved. That’s it, really.
We could wank on about the “style,” but you’ve got eyes. So we won’t.
Take a look.

343 Industries’ Frank O’Connor was on hand at Comic-Con, and while there, he provided a few more details regarding Halo Waypoint.
Waypoint will feature access to audio and video content, community features, the ability to follow your “Halo career”, track the Halo games you play along with the achievements you unlock and other aspects not directly tied to “Halo 3, Halo Wars, and Halo, reports Kotaku.
It can be accessed from the Xbox 360 dashboard, will be a place to interact with others, and the first place to see episodes of Halo Legends which will be labeled as “events” instead of being placed in the video marketplace.
“There’s a lot more to Waypoint than just watching movies and listening to podcasts,” he said. “Maybe you just want to see a really old Halo trailer from E3. We’re going to aggregate everything that you would want to watch from the Halo universe on that site. But it’s a lot more ambitious than that. It’s going to evolve in features and functionality to make it the prime destination for the Halo fan.
“You’ll be able to see [Legends] episodes in their entirety via Waypoint in a staggered schedule. Those events will be global—it will be in every Xbox territory—and we’ll make those things sort of ‘come participate’ events.”
As far as a launch date is concerned, O’Conner reiterated that it was scheduled for a fall release, but will arrive sooner rather than later that season.
With pricing, Microsoft has yet to determine if Silver Member will have to pay to access the service or not.
“Certainly, if you’re a Gold member you’re going to get access to all of that experience,” he said. “We want everyone to have this same experience, but the question is, if there’s multiplayer features that are technically connected to Gold, it’s easier to deal with. There’s a lot of reasons that [tying it to] Gold makes sense.”

Gamespot’s posted up details from yesterday’s Halo Legends panel at Comic Con, revealing the multi-part anime as a plot centred aroudn the story of multiple Spartans.
- Legends will explore the stories of many other Spartan soldiers besides Master Chief, including at least one female Spartan.
- They haven’t finished casting yet, which is why they haven’t talked about actors involved.
- Sergeant Johnson won’t be featured in any significant way.
- At least one episode will delve very deeply into the history of the Covenant.
- A lot of the settings in the anime are directly inspired by the series’ multiplayer maps.
- The episode by Casio Entertainment will be purely CG rather than hand-drawn.
- Every episode will be considered canon except for Toei’s, which O’Connor said “are fun” rather than official fiction.
