EA’s announced that an anime movie on Mass Effect will release in summer 2012.

The movie’s being made in collaboration with BioWare, T.O. Entertainment and FUNimation.

Mass Effect series producer Casey Hudson will be executive producer alongside FUNimation president and CEO Gen Fukunaga, director of original entertainment Chris Moujaes, T.O Entertainment’s CEO Takeichi Honda and Yui Shibata.

“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.

“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.”
