Impression post trailer: You know, this doesn’t look at all bad. While its impossible to think of this without directly referencing the Animatrix and Gotham Knights, there is a realm of possibility here.
In the Matrix, anything was possible, and very little of their lore was “defined.” On the other hand, Batman has a rich tradition built on decades upon decades of defined form. Halo seems like it will be more like the Matrix, in that it will be able to broach subjects that help evolve a series, instead of interpret it an un-revolutionary manner (ala Gotham Knights)
Halo Waypoint: Home to all Halo things and operated via the 360, Halo Waypoint will also be your first opportunity to see it prior to the DVD.
OOPS! Someone forgot the translator! They’re introducing reps from Casio, Studio fourC, and the president of production I.G. and NO ONE is translating their twenty second anecdotes. Like, it seems like they are saying something of value because the other Japanese guests are laughing at acknowledging each other.
The Line that made me cry: Production I.G.’s CEO Mitsuhisa Ishikawa: “When people think of Production I.G. in the West, I think they’ll soon know us as the studio who made Halo Legends.”
Toei’s contribution is apparently the only non-canonical one. Focused on “Levity,” take that as you will.
55% of the questions were about ODST, Reach, the Halo Movie, or something even… even… less appropriate to this panel.
Not only will the series involve additional Spartans, one of them is a female. This character is taken out of the novels. In fact, Master Chief will only play a key role in one of the shorts, or so they insinuate.
Casting is not yet complete, and no announcement about attempts to localize beyond subtitles.
Curious? Spike TV is supposed to air the trailer we saw at some point today or tomorrow.
