If you enjoyed last year’s run of Dark Horse’s adaptation on Bioware’s Mass Effect series, or their work to recap the original game on the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2 (which we thought worked), you’re getting more crossover goodness in 2011. On a panel last Friday about Video Game Comics, Dark Horse representative Jeremy Atkins revealed that a new series is indeed in the works, due out later this year. They also confirmed that a comic series for Star Wars: The Old Republic is in the works, and writers from Bioware will be the ones penning the story.
The increasingly popular journey from video games to comics has been a rough one in the last few years, but from what I’ve gathered the Mass Effect crossover was a nice exception to the disappointing rule. Hopefully we won’t be let down and the new comics will pleasantly supplement the universe, along with Mass Effect 3 when it hits PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this holiday season.
