The official Brutal Legend site has been teasing us about a looming article in the next issue of the Official Xbox Magazine for some time, and as highlighted by Double Fine you can now grab it in the shops.
I believe the Brutal Legend article is in the US edition only, so if you’re on that side of the ocean be sure to pick it up. You might even want to go ahead and scan all the pages, then send them to me. Just a thought!
[January 15th, 2008 at 12:00pm GMT+0] Chris Capel has just notified me that the UK edition of the Official Xbox Magazine is also sporting a Brutal Legend feature, although whether or not it’s identical to the US version isn’t known at this time. Any good magazine shop should have it in stock now, so go get yourself sorted!
[January 16th, 2009 at 8:52pm GMT+0] Scans of both the US and UK Official Xbox Magazine articles are now available in the Assorted Images section, courtesy of the most excellent Chris Capel and Jaap Jansen.
A cursory look indicates that the actual content of the two articles is identical, although the layout is very different in each — I’d personally say the UK edition has the edge and is probably the preferable one to read. Of course, both have their own images, captions, and minor asides.
Telescope-eyed Chris points out the following little nuggets revealed in the article:
- Eddie may have the ability to change his shirt, evidenced by the fact that he’s wearing different shirts in various screenshots
- The Guitar Hero and Rock Band guitars will not be compatible with Brutal Legend
- Plenty of new concept art
Jaap has noted in this post’s comments that some lines at the bottom of the US scans weren’t successfully included in the images, so be sure to read his comment to see what they were (some are exclusive to the US article).
