This will actually be the second Mass Effect reunion in recent months: A slightly smaller collection of actors and developers got together in November 2020 to celebrate N7 Day, which also turned out to be the day that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition was announced. This post-launch follow-up seems like a nice way to close that loop, although I wouldn't be surprised to see more in the future: The affection the cast members display for one another really does seem genuine.
shout out to my deep space brother @Mark_Meer you are awesome. that is all, carry on pic.twitter.com/A7ncw0LUbJMay 14, 2021
The reunion gets underway at 12 pm PT/3 pm ET on May 15, on YouTube.
