Dante's Inferno

Yes, it’s true…Entertainment Arts has turned Dante’s Inferno into a video game — it’s available for your PSP, X-Box and Playstation 3. Oh. My. God. And the tagline is, natch “Go to Hell!”

National Public Radio in the United States has an interview with the game’s creator.

Wired has a review and also offers ten more literary classics it deems worthy of the video game  treatment.

What’s more, NPR notes that EA promises to release a print edition of the poem illustrated by pictures from the game.
