The Spike TV network will preview scenes from "The Babysitter" short of the Japanese-animated Halo Legends anthology during the GTTV Presents Halo 3: ODST Countdown to Launch special at midnight on early Friday morning. Halo Legends is a collection of seven short films based on Microsoft Studios' Halo game franchise. The BONES, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G, Studio 4°C, and Toei Animation anime studios are animating these side stories about the war between humans and the alien Covenant.
According to Spike TV, "The Babysitter" follows mankind's Spartan super-soldier and the Orbital Drop Shock Troopers "when an all-or-nothing opportunity to strike at the heart of Covenant leadership arises."
Warner Brothers will release the anthology via DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and digital distribution in early 2010. A trailer was previously shown at Comic-Con International in San Diego and on Spike TV in July.
