Have Evangelion's Misato Read You The News

The PS3 isn't getting a Neon Genesis Evangelion game from Namco Bandai and Cellius just yet — but rather, a live news program. Make that, a live news anchored program by character Misato.

The news program runs on software that collects news from real-life news (politics, the economy, sports and, yes, the anime industry). A Cellius voice synthesis engine is used to have Misato read said news in real time on this Nerv News 24 television program.

It's even possible to customize the show's backdrop to the secret Evangelion Nerv headquarters, Misato's dinning room and whatnot. It's also possible to customize her hair and her clothing.

The Misato Katsuragi News Project goes live in Japan on June 6.
