With Dead Space 2 being set up as one of the biggest video games sequels of next year, it is no surprise to hear that a second animated film based on this popular new franchise is set to be released on the same day as the game.

Based before the events of the first game, the story focuses on a crew of people as they respond to the disaster of the Aegis VII and try to obtain the shards from the Marker, while unaware that the government is secretly trying to recreate a “Marker blueprint” and using them as test subjects.

The producer and supervising director of the first film will make a return, joining the animation team behind The Simpsons and King of the Hill. It will also star the voice talents from major stars from some of the biggest television shows, including Christopher Judge (Stargate: SG-1), Peter Woodward (Babylon 5, Charmed) and Ricardo Chavira (Desperate Housewives).

Scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu-ray on the 25th of January, the trailer is out now and you can now view it below:
