Another gift from New York Comic Con, a new trailer for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition waxes nostalgic and shows off the gleam of the HD makeover.

In this behind-the-scenes video, 343 Industries staffers discuss the personal impact of the game which established the Xbox and Xbox LIVE as major players on the console scene.

The game’s dual engine-enabled graphics switch feature, which can be toggled in-game with a button press, is demonstrated, and there’s some interesting tidbits on how 343 dealt with the difficulties of making Master Chief look just right when he’s been given a polishing.

Multiplayer, Kinect, 3D, and skulls all get a lookin, as well – there’s plenty of info to mine for hardcore fans.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition launches on November 15, exclusively for Xbox 360.
