Konami Tribute Art Collection
We teamed up with some of the hottest artist, illustrators and designers working in the industry today to create new, officially licensed art prints of the best Konami games. Video games such as Castlevania, Silent Hill and Contra. We do this together with Konami Digital Entertainment with the goal of creating beautiful new artworks for the best Konami video games the way you remember them. Images that capture the heart of these classic games and what they mean for us and the artists, or meant playing them in our youth. This art collection will be periodically updated with new releases from a variety of Konami video games.
The Gothic Success of Castlevania
Castlevania is one of those titles that truly deserves its classic video game status. The horror-themed action-adventure series kicked off in 1986 when Japanese studio and publisher Konami launched the eponymous first game, and has been around ever since. Selling in the millions to a worldwide audience, and successfully branching out into anime and manga, Castlevania seared itself into the collective memory, forever a pop-cultural reference for each and any medium offering vampire hunting at the loud crack of a whip.
