An animated direct-to-video tie-in to the 'Dead Space 2' video game is planned for Blu-ray this January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay says 'Dead Space: Aftermath' is coming to high-definition on January 25.
Coming from the award-winning game development team and the 2008 animated feature production company, 'Dead Space Aftermath' will feature several internationally renowned animation directors that use their unique and bold visions to explain what happened during the first-responder mission to Aegis VII. The directors will do this through the perspective of four survivors in this fast-paced horrifying thrill ride that stretches the limits of time and space.
Making a return from the first 'Dead Space' animated feature film is producer Joe Goyette and supervising director Mike Disa. 'Dead Space Aftermath' will also be produced and animated by Film Roman (“The Simpsons,” “King of the Hill”), and boasts a stellar voice cast led by Christopher Judge (“Stargate: SG-1”), Peter Woodward (“Babylon 5,” “Charmed”), Graham McTavish (upcoming theatrical release of The Hobbit), Ricardo Chavira (“Desperate Housewives”) and Gwendoline Yeo (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”).
In 'Dead Space Aftermath,' the year is 2509 and not only has Earth lost contact with the USG Ishimura and Isaac Clarke, but also the USG O'Bannon, which is the first responder ship sent to rescue them. Four crew members of the O'Bannon have survived, but no one knows what happened to the rest of the crew, what they were doing, or what secrets they may be holding. All will be revealed...in the Aftermath!
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but the suggestedlist price for the Blu-rays is $34.99.
