EA mauls Dante's book

700-year-old literature... with a SCYTHE

In news that will no doubt send literature buffs turning a slight shade of red, EA's announced it is to release a version of Dante Alighieri's Inferno, part of The Divine Comedy... with its arse-kicking videogame warrior on the cover.


The book is set to include the original, epic 700-year-old poem, plus an introduction from the game's exec producer, Jonathan Knight and "a 16-page, full-color art insert showcasing the evolution of characters and environments from the classic poem to the video game".

What's next? Arnold Schwarzenegger in Hamlet? Oh wait.
