Fun: Valentine’s Day Rinea

Published April 25, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene

I created this over the course of a few weeks, trying to practice my Adobe Illustrator skills, and finished right in time for Valentine’s Day. With the Fire Emblem community, many had the great idea of doing a “Valentian Valentines” themed banner for more Echoes characters in Fire Emblem Heroes.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit Of Justice came out on September 8th, 2016 on the Nintendo 3DS. It has also since been released on iOS and Android devices on September 21st, 2017.

Okami HD is a high-definition remaster of a classic that was originally released on the Playstation 2. I will be talking about the Playstation 4 version, but you can also get the game on Microsoft Windows and Xbox One right now. Over the summer, you will also be able to play it on the Nintendo Switch. Okami is considered to be one of the best video games of all time due to its critical acclaim and artistic expression.

I am a few hours or so into the game now and I agree that it is great, especially for its timeless art style resembling what is called ink wash painting through cel-shading. If you’re interested, click the link to learn more.
