The focus of the story will be James Vega and his elite special forces squad.

Videogame movies have a history of being dreadful, but videogame based anime has generally had much better reception. Funimation is certainly hoping that's the case with their upcoming 'Mass Effect 3' prequel known as 'Paragon Lost.'

The anime's story will follow James Vega – a smart move considering how attached folks are to their particular version of Shepard. The team behind it is Production IG, who also worked on the 'Ghost in the Shell' series and 'Kill Bill. Vol. 1.'

In other BioWare anime news, 'Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker' has a release date of May 29th.
