Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker anime shines in production trailer

You'd be forgiven for knowing very little about this Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker anime. Unlike the live-action Dragon Age: Redemption, this slickly-produced CGI feature has maintained a fairly low profile. That may change after this behind-the-scenes production trailer starts making the rounds:

Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker recounts the life and times of Cassandra Pentaghast, who fans might remember as the Chantry Seeker who spent most of Dragon Age II pumping Varric for information about Hawke (aka the Champion) and his adventures in Kirkwall.

“In the Dragon Age universe, we have been pursuing this story line. So when the question came up, 'who should this movie be about?', and the answer became Cassandra, it's because it ties in with the themes we've been building to,” explained Mike Laidlaw, BioWare's creative director. “For us, finding out her backstory, and seeing how she rose to the prominence that she has, gives us this completely new take on what's happening both with her Order and with the Templars, and with that ongoing conflict that ties the whole Dragon Age universe together.

The film is being animated by Oxybot (Vexille) and directed by Fumihiko Sori, producer of Appleseed. It will make its way out west care of FUNimation. No release date have been given, however the giant “Coming 2012” letters hint we might see it sometime this year.

    If Bioware penned the story and it is kept true to Dragon Age, this will rock but if the script was given up to interpretation then it could be bad, but Bioware has yet to disappoint me. And yes I have Dragon Age 2 and yes, some of the "improvements" did not sit well with me, but I enjoyed the game overall.

    I can't wait for this, I love Dragon Age.

    Really? This stuck-up bi*ch? >_>; But hey... the folks that made Appleseed? I'm there.
