Darksiders art, statues coming

THQ has announced plans to keep Darksiders in gamers’ brains for a bit longer with the release of some collectibles based on the post-apocalyptic videogame. The publisher has decided to create a Darksiders art book and some collectible statues, effectively draining the wallets of swag-aholics like myself.

Taking on the responsibility for producing the art books is Udon Entertainment, probably best known to gamers for their reinvigoration of Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. Udon will be releasing ‘The Art ofDarksiders,’ complete with original works and concept pieces from Vigil Games creative director Joe Madureira, formerly an artist on ‘The Uncanny X-Men.’

The statues are set to be produced by SOTA Toys and will be a limited production of a 14-inch War riding Ruin, his horse of doom. Preorders are set to begin in July with no pricing announced as of yet, but don’t worry if supply runs out as SOTA is set to also create several statues based on the game. Gotta collect ’em all!
