We've come to expect excellent artwork in Moss' titles, and this game doesn't disappoint in that area either. The fantastic Suzuhito Yasuda, the artist behind Durarara!! and Devil Survivor, has drawn all the characters in the game. If you are a fan of Suzuhito Yasuda make sure you pick up the Limited Edition which includes a hardcover art book with over 30 pages of work from the artist himself.
