The Halo Legends special edition Blu-Ray and DVD have been detailed, ahead of their release in the US on February 9, followed by the UK on February 15.
The two disc DVD of the anime series includes (in Microsoft's words):
- The Making of Halo Legends - An introduction to Halo Legends followed by a making-of segment for each episode.
- Halo: Gaming Evolved - Explaining the Halo phenomenon from its inception as an Xbox video game to a present day entertainment franchise.
- Audio Commentary with directors Frank O'Connor and Joseph Chou
- Widescreen (1.78:1)
The Blu-ray edition is said to be "loaded" with bonus materials, including all extras from the 2-disc special edition as well as "Halo: The Story so Far, an overview of the Halo universe up until the end of Halo 3." Good news for the two purchasers who've never played a Halo game, then.
Legends is made up of seven shorts produced by five anime production houses (Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio4 C, and Toei Animation) as well as Microsoft's own newly-formed company, 343 Industries.
