We’ve al­ways been big fans of Cap­com’s fan ser­vice. From mar­ket­ing para­pher­na­lia and ephemera, to col­lecta­bles like this art of book, the beloved Ja­panese games devel­oper of the Res­i­dent Evil se­ries al­ways seems to de­liver high­qual­ity, in­sight­ful publi­ca­tions.

Read­ers are treated to the full pro­duc­tion process that falls to the art team: from char­ac­ter con­cept art, 3D ren­ders for mar­ket­ing ma­te­rial, en­vi­ron­ment paint­ings and even logo de­sign for patches and cos­tumes.

Al­most all of the pages have com­ments from the fea­tured cre­ator of the work. These are re­fresh­ingly hum­ble in many cases: of­ten the artist will poke fun at them­selves for over­step­ping the mark, es­pe­cially when han­dling new de­signs for the fe­male char­ac­ters. And no Res­i­dent Evil game would be com­plete with­out a plethora of ge­net­i­cally al­tered beast­ies, so if you’re a fan of great crea­ture de­sign then this book def­i­nitely caters for you.

Art­work from a suit­ably fore­bod­ing lo­ca­tion from the game, show­ing how light is clev­erly used to add ten­sion.
