Japanese movie producer T.O Entertainment announced that they are producing an anime movie of BIOWARE's RPG game Dragon Age. The movie has recently been announced by FUNimation. The main production studio is OXYBOT ("Vexille - 2077 Nihon Sakoku") and the director is Sori Fumihiko. They plan to release the DVD at the end of 2011 in North America and other countries. In Japan, it will be shown in theaters.

Okay, I remember hearing about this over two months ago on the gaming sites. So it's director news? Just now the anime folk are catching on? I pity them for not being Bioware thralls.

the previous announcement by Funi didn't mention the involvement of Japanese producers. the news had been in pending.

Ah, more video game turn anime can only be a good thing! :) Let's hope it gets a decent conversion from the game.

The game was BA not as good as KotoR but it still had its own strong points if they do the same time of cg they had for the trailer for dragon age then this should be good.

afaik, there won't be any of the game's characters involved in the anime. It's going to be an absolutely unrelated story set in the same world.

Cool Dragon Age, one of my favorite rpgs. There so much they can put in the anime, there's a lot of history in the codex + politics conflicts + badass fighting + good character development in the game, they should be able to do something decent with the anime.

This would be even better. Saren versus Shepard animated = My dream.

The WRPG community (especially those that shun JRPG's) just got trolled hard.

I know right? I know so many 'classic' nerds who love sci-fi and all that Bioware stuff but absolutely hate JRPGs and anime. Time to lol @ them.

why so much negativity towards licensing companies? people should be glad that funimation is trying to make anime more known

So what studio is doing the Animation? If it's anyone other then Bones, Madhouse, Manglobe or Bandai/Sunrise. it's gonna be utter shit.

Never played the game but Sori did a wonderful job adapting Taiyo Matsumoto's Ping Pong to the big screen, so I have faith in him. I'll definitely be checking this out.
