Assassin's Creed Brought To Life By Famed Japanese Artists

In Japan, there's been a touring exhibition of Assassin's Creed art. No wonder, because the game has amazing art. Just look at the concept art for Assassin's Creed: Revelations (here and here).

Now, look at this. This isn't concept art. Rather, this is art from the cleverly named Assassin's Creed: Art Exhibit, which offers new and fresh takes on the AC games.

The exhibit features works from well-known Japanese artists, such as Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai), Katsuya Terada (Blood: The Last Vampire), Yusuke Hashimoto (Platinum Games producer), Koji Morimoto (Studio 4°C co-founder), Akihiko Yoshida (Square Enix), and famed anime creator Mahiro Maeda.

The show, which originally ran from Aug. to Nov. 2011, is coming back to Tokyo. It is running until Jan. 17 at Pixiv Zingaro. More info in the link below. Photos in the gallery courtesy of website

    Finally, an art gallery I don't have to lie about being interested in.

    Roger Ebert can take his 'video games aren't art' schtick and shove it where nobody's opinion matters.

    You said this was art, but what I saw was drawing.

    I have no problem with it, I love these pictures, but don't lie to my face and say these have artistic value.

      Does that have more "artistic value" for you? I'm sorry but what is considered to be of "artistic value" is almost always nothing more than childish scribbles with pretentious garble about how it represents a part of the human condition or other such garbage.

        You sir, have said it all.

        On a more relevant note, I especially like the 5th image from the bottom, with the beautifully atmospheric cinematic-looking pieces. That's what I want to see when I enter the game.

        I'm not sure what your definition of art is exactly, but these aren't production drawings or sketches, so they are in fact for arts sake. Though i sort of get where you're coming from, to say that these don't offer any kind of artistic sentiment would be wrong. Some more than others however.

      You, sir, are a complete and utter tool.
      Good day ;)


    Aww shit, I was thinking about going to Japan this month. Oh well.
