Dragon age could work as an animation but an anime I highly doubt.

Looks like some marketing people got their hands on Dragon Age... I can't see this being any good.

So Greg Zeschuk loves to bash Japanese developers for not trying new things yet he's OK with Dragon Age being turned into an anime? (yes, I realize he didn't necessarily had any say in this)
 
Also, this doesn't even technically qualify as anime seeing as no Japanese production companies are involved.

No, the people that did The Simpsons did Dead Space: Downfall. Dragon Age will be done by an entirely new studio.

I hope this is a success for them so they can do more OVAs for other Bioware franchises.

My excitement for this project lasted as long as it took this thread to load.

This sounds terrible.

The story wasn't even that great in Dragon Age :/

hoping this doesn't turn out horrible, as long as it isn't about a bunch of high schoolers running around killing darkspawn it might not suck.

The whole idea of Dragon Age is that the main character is created by you, and has no other characteristic traits besides what you give him. I don't see how it can translate to a movie well.

Obviously the main character will be a goody-goody warrior that uses a sword+shield.

I don't know what to think of this, I was interested until I read it was going to be anime, and I actually like anime. I don't feel DA will suit anime for anyone who has played the game, might be a hit for people who haven't though.

I'm optimistic. Halo legends was pretty good >_>

If anybody who is employed in any way by a movie company even thinks about making a video game into a movie then that video game movies is in the works.  I bet the janitor was cleaning the bathroom and he said, "Man, a Dragon Age movie would be awesome."  And the next thing you know a Dragon Age movie is "In the works."

Basically the Grey Warden from the Sacred Ashes trailer.

Sadly disappointed. Best of luck to the studio.
