Whoa... So you all may have heard of the Dante's Inferno game that EA is putting out. Granted, I'm not that excited about it, but they sure seem bent on promoting it in wacky ways. One of the considerably cool ones seems to be via an animated movie, featured above. Gia covered its announcement back in March, and Production I.G. has noted their involvement in the project, but I was expecting this.
Of course, the pedigree is pretty high, bringing together the minds behind Samurai Champloo, Ghost in the Shell, and other more "artistic" features.
The trailer promises an an animated epic and for once I think the term fits perfectly. Good job Manga Entertainment, I'm marking February 2010 on my calender.
