Jotun: Valhalla Edition

Jotun: Valhalla Edition comes out tomorrow in Europe, but Nintendo Life has a pretty interesting interview for you to check out in the mean time. They went and asked Will Dubé (Creative Director) some questions about the game, covering various topics such as academic research when working on the lore of the game, how the team created the unique art style, when they chose to bring the game to Wii U, and more.

Here’s an excerpt:

Everything is hand-drawn in the game. The animations, the backgrounds, everything is hand-drawn. It’s really cool because it means that every stroke you see on screen is something that was put there by the artist and it allows for a really cool direct communication between the artist and the player.

We were inspired by Disney, Studio Ghibli, all of their classic movies. We love those movies and we love the art style and we’re really happy to bring that to the game as well.
