Japan’s Hotline Miami: Collected Edition’s Artwork Is Incredible

Boneface provides sylized art for Japan’s recently released Hotline Miami: Collected Edition

Devolver and Dennation Games’ Hotline Miami has been painting the Land of the Rising Sun Red for about a week now, but we’re just now getting a look at the suitably striking, neon-saturated art for the game.

The cover art (as seen above) features a stylized depiction of Hotline Miami’s bloodied, mask-sporting protagonist Jacket donning a “Richard” mask. The cover art was created by Queens of the Stone Age album artist Boneface. We have to say, despite our concerns that Jacket may have a slight touch of malaria, this yellow fever-infused bit of art is pretty much of a perfect fit for the series, which is known for its over-the-top style and visceral combat.

The deliciously Engrish Hotline Miami: Collected Edition launched on June 25 courtesy of Spike Chunsoft in Japan and released exclusively for PlayStation platforms, and features both Hotline Miami and its superb sequel Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number (check out our reviews for Hotline Miami and Wrong Number here.).

So, what do you think of Boneface’s art for the game? Be sure to let us know in the comments section below.
