By now, most Pokemon fans should be no stranger to Pokemon Sword/Shield art director James Turner – who is often credited with giving life to many modern Pokemon designs and even illustrating Pokemon Center merchandise. Of course, there was also a lesser-known project by Game Freak that he was in charge of, and Turner recently celebrated its birthday with a small treat for fans!
To celebrate the 8th anniversary of HarmoKnight (for 3DS), James Turner shared a special piece of artwork depicting its two heroes Tempo and Tappy. Despite having directed the game himself, however, Turner did share that it had been awhile since he illustrated the duo.
Check it out in full below:
8 years ago today HarmoKnight was released for the Nintendo 3DS in the US and EU. Published by Nintendo, directed by your truly, and created by a talented team of developers at Game Freak.
