An extended version of a clip from Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker (Dragon Age: Blood Mage no Seisen), the CG anime film based on BioWare and Electronic Arts' fantasy game franchise Dragon Age, was posted on the Funimation website on Monday.

Director Fumihiko Sori (Ichi, Ashita no Joe, Ping Pong) and the studio Oxybot are working together after previously collaborating on Vexille - 2077 Isolation of Japan and To. Jeffrey Scott of the original game wrote the film's script, and Daisuke Nakayama (Tweeny Witches) designed the characters. Tetsuya Takahashi (Appleseed , Halo Legends, To, Resident Evil: Degeneration) is composing the music, while Koji Kasamatsu (Afro Samurai, Appleseed, Halo Legends, To) serves as the sound designer.
In the Japanese-dubbed version, Actress Chiaki Kuriyama (Battle Royale, Kill Bill, The Sky Crawlers) will play the knight heroine Cassandra Pentaghast, actor Shosuke Tanihara (Vexille, The Sky Crawlers, Pokémon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram) plays a mage named Regalyan D'Marcall, and Gackt (Shiki, Supernatural: The Anime Series, Sket Dance) plays a Knight-Commander.
