“Halo Legends,” an all-new, CG and traditional anime PG-13 experience that presents enthralling new stories from one of the world’s most popular video game franchises, will be distributed February 16, 2010 by Warner Home Video as a Special Edition 2-disc version on DVD and Blu-Ray, as well as single disc DVD, On Demand and Digital Download.
“Halo Legends” is produced by 343 Industries, a part of Microsoft Game Studios.

In “The Prototype,” human marines struggling to defend a secret weapons research facility from invading Covenant troops are finally ordered to destroy everything rather than let the weapons and valuable navigational data fall into the hands of the Covenant. In a desperate but noble sacrifice, a war-torn officer dons the prototype suit of powered armor being developed at the facility in a last-second gambit to buy time for his soldiers to escape. The episode plays to the strengths of Bones’ impressive ability to represent aerial and mecha-style combat.
