An art book for Devil May Cry makes nothing but good sense. This is an extremely stylish game that had people playing it for the imagery as much as the exciting gameplay. But what really makes great sense is taking the time to really showcase all of the effort put into creating, drawing, and bringing the DMC hero, Dante, to life. Dante is arguably the most meticulously crafted male character in video games. Most of the time the developers are satisfied to just stick a helmet on some dude and call it a day. At best they modify something resembling a “Ken Doll” and add some bulky muscles. But not Dante. He’s sort of the Brad Pitt of video games with some serious added swagger. So having a book that walks us through the process of creating this memorable character is really long overdue.
