The official website for Electronics Arts' Dante's Inferno game has begun streaming a trailer for its Japanese animated spinoff video on Thursday. Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic is a six-part anthology that the Japanese studio Production I.G is animating with other partners for Manga Entertainment's parent company Starz Media and Visceral Games.
Kite creator Usuomi Umetsu revealed in a May blog entry that he and Saber Marionette J character designer Tsukasa Kotobuki were working on the anthology — before the anthology's staff was officially announced. Production I.G confirmed at Anime Expo in July that it is also involved in the project along with Ergo Proxy director Shukou Murase. The other studios involved include Japan's Manglobe and Korea's DongWoo Animation. Film Roman, a subsidiary of Starz Media, will tie the release of the animated project with the 2010 launch of the game.
