Electronic Arts is partnering back up with Film Roman, the folks behind Dead Space: Downfall, to deliver a similar treatment for their upcoming gaming title Dante’s Inferno. Little was revealed about the upcoming direct-to-DVD animated feature, except that it would ship simultaneously with the game that it’s based on in 2010. The game follows Dante, now a vengeful warrior instead of a philosophical poet, as he cuts a bloody swath through all the circles of Hell in search of his lost love.
Interestingly, different anime studios are being tapped for each of the nine levels of Hell, which implies that the title will have more in common with The Animatrix and Batman: Gotham Knight than Downfall. Which can only bode well for the fledgling property, as DS:D was pretty painful.
