God of War fan reimagines Kratos as Disney hero

God of War Ragnarok Secrets 500

God of War is no stranger when it comes to jaw-dropping fan art. Now someone has reimagined Kratos as a Disney hero.

Created by freelance illustrator, Romina Tempest, an animated version of the cartoon Kratos has caught the attention of God of War series fans. The art style has also been likened to characters from RPG series, The Banner Saga, as well as the original Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV show.

Needless to say, this has us wanting a God of War animated series. Kratos isn’t the only PlayStation icon Tempest has paid tribute to – you can ogle their amazing Sly Raccoon and Solid Snake sketches, as well as this neat sculpture of Oddworld’s Abe. Seriously, go and check out their work.

Earlier this year, we got our first proper look at God of War: Ragnarok after Sony’s original teaser. The upcoming sequel is set some years after the events of the 2018 reboot as Kratos and Atreus ready themselves for a war against the Norse gods.

It has been confirmed that God of War: Ragnarok will be the closing chapter in the Viking saga. That should come as no surprise given the sequel’s name – Ragnarok – literally means the end of the world.

You can read more about the mythological secrets behind that trailer here. If you’re hungry to know more about where the story could go, what destiny has in store for Atreus, and who exactly Angrboða is, check out our deep dive.

One of the trailer’s biggest talking point was the appearance of Thor, God of Thunder. Compared to the version of this character that has been popularised by Marvel comics and movie adaptations, he’s a little… chunkier. For some reason, this has upset a number of “fans”. This is despite Ragnarok’s Thor being based off the Prose Edda – a literal Norse mythology textbook written in the 13th century.

Being the investigative journalists we are, we asked a record-holding powerlifting champion whether Thor is too fat.

God of War Ragnarok will launch on PS5 and PS4 in 2022.
