As I have mentioned before I am not particularly interested in the Xbox or Xbox 360. That is of course with a few exceptions and one of those exceptions is Perfect Dark Zero. I throughly enjoyed the original and even though Rare have been butchering themselves lately I would still be interested in giving this game a go.
What I wanted to look at are some of the character designs for a cel shadded Perfect Dark. These were put out by Rare while the Xbox was still in business and were created by Wil Overton. I personally would have prefered a cel shaded Perfect Dark over what ended up being a realistic final result. Just recently I have been playing XIII; the cel shaded FPS by Ubisoft. Fortunately on the PC version you can play this game in native high definition and I must stay that this game is visually stunning. Much like other successful cel shaded games (Okami, Zelda:WW) this game looks tremendous in it’s own right.
So I thought that I would just post up these shots of the cel-shaded Joanna leaving with you an idea of how magic this could have been. Full Size Images.
Just imagine how fantastic this style of game could have been?
