The Sexy, Colourful Art of DMC, Enslaved and Heavenly Sword

Kotaku: From the first time I saw Heavenly Sword concept art in an old copy of Edge, right through to their work today, I've been a big, big fan of the art team over at Ninja Theory. So it's a pleasure today to present the work of the studio's visual art director, Alessandro Taini. (Alessandro Taini, Devil May Cry, DmC: Devil May Cry, Enslaved, Heavenly Sword, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

funny thing, the art doesn't translate well into the game, especially Heavenly Sword. Just look how hot Nariko looks in the art, but then the game just ruined it for me. She looks like an alien to me. If you think she looks hot in the game, then be my guest. I think Trip looks better.

I would personally love to work for Ninja Theory. Screw the haters, they have no idea how much passion and creativity have when making their games.

This art is truly amazing, I must find this artist and put some research in she/he. Heavenly Sword was a great game in my opinion, Enslaved I haven't played yet and DmC......well.

Anyways, I just hope Ninja Theory gets their head together sooner or later it's a shame they are being used as Capcom's lapdog recently. I'd hate to see such talent like this squandered especially if the company closes down...

My guess is that they took the offer from Capcom to do a DmC game because their own previous 2 games didnt fair well financially, and they must've taken a hit. In doing a game from an established franchise, they would have a better chance of gaining profits needed for making sequels to their own games, or using it for creating more unique titles.

As for the change of design of Dante, its unfortunate that NT are getting caught in the controversy. After all Capcom wanted to change Dante, not NT, so they went along with different concepts and Capcom decided on this look.

Of course now NT is getting the backlash from the braindead fans. I for one hope they game is good despite all the hatred, hope that reviewers rate this game based on its own merits and not fromits associations to other DMC games, and hopefully NT get the money they need to get back into what they do best.

If there's anyone to blame for this mess, its the gamers for not buying their games, and Capcom for once again screwing over their fans, not Ninja Theory.
