Fighting Game “Symphony of the Blood” featuring Tezuka’s Characters
Too good to be true? We stumbled up on these gorgeous screenshots of what looks like a PSP fighting game in development, featuring various characters from Osamu Tezuka's masterworks, Black Jack, Princess Sapphire and many more!
Pics after the cut!
Noticed the "USONY" logo? Sorry guys, these are concept art for an imaginary game by designer/illustrator KEI-SUWABE. (By the way, "uso" means lie in Japanese.) Too bad the game isn't for real, but the images are great so take a look anyway.
Title image. The apparently talented designer is also a full-fledged metalhead.
Character select screen. He's planning 47 characters in all, and the images will be updated as the works progress.
Gameplay. The blood filled syringe-shaped gauge looks cool. Is this where the title "Symphony of the Blood" (SOB in short) comes from?
Princess Sapphire from Princess Knight.
Hyakkimaru from Dororo.
Sharaku from The Three-Eyed One.
Duke Red, our favourite villain of the star system.
Shunsaku Ban a.k.a. Higeoyaji or Mr. Mustachio.
Koji Sunami from Miraijin Kaosu (Futureman Chaos) serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine in 1978.
James Block from Alabaster.
More pics on the imaginary game's website, and popular characters including Astro Boy and Kimba are on their way!
You can also see some other awesome fanarts by KEI-SUWABE on his website, DORADEMON(Devilish Doraemon with six pack abs), BLACK JACKOON(Black Jack meets Black Lagoon) and many more.
