It’s been a while since we’ve spoken about Dante’s Inferno, having released all the way back in 2010. It was a action hack and slash style game put out by Visceral Games and EA and managed to create a few controversies prior to it’s release which may have helped overshadow the actual game itself. Regardless though, the title was well received and also well made while having left a certain impact on some folks.
One of those folks includes Naughty Dog’s Senior Cinematics Animator, Tal Peleg, who just wrapped up his own little Dante’s Inferno side project just a couple weeks ago. He enjoyed the game so much that he decided to create his own trailer for what a sequel may look like considering that we haven’t heard a peep from EA about a new project in this world. Incredibly, he’s been working on this for around 2 years just in his spare time. Dante’s Redemption is an action packed short CG film featuring Dante fighting through Hell’s beasts and a final battle with Death itself to save his love, Beatrice.
I watched the video and honestly I was stunned by how great it looks especially from someone who doesn’t work at Visceral or EA. Granted, Peleg has a load of experience working with cinematics and is extremely good at it (Uncharted, Last of Us, etc), but the fact that he nails the look and feel of Dante’s Inferno is quite impressive. If you want to know more about his project, make sure to check out it’s Facebook page here or have a read through of this interview over at Dual Shockers with Peleg as he shares some behind the scenes details.
Now that you’re all caught up, here’s the official trailer:
