Vanillaware’s George Kamitani Shares Gorgeous New Year’s Artwork

on January 4, 2017 7:32 PM

A new year means another beautiful illustration from Vanillaware’s renowned artist and president George Kamitani.

The piece is themed “The Hidden Cave” and its colorful, striking design incorporates the Japanese goddesses Uzume no Mikoto and Amaterasu, as well as the Japanese god Ame no Tajikarao. The design also prominently features roosters, as 2017 is the year of the rooster according to the Chinese zodiac.

Gawk at the artwork above. Kamitani and the rest of Vanillaware are currently toiling away on 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, which still lacks so much as a release window.
