Fans of the Halo universe, rejoice! Microsoft is teaming up with five Japanese production houses to unleash Halo Legends, a seven-part anime-style series. Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio4 C, and Toei Animation are working together to release the series–via Warner Bros.–on DVD, Blu-ray, and “other digital platforms” in early 2010.
Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed, Appleseed Ex Machina) has been appointed as creative director of the project, but you can also expect to see him credited as the director of one of the seven segments.
Halo fans have little to worry about with so many big names–especially Aramaki–working on this project.
