UDON Celebrates Capcom Fighters


One of the biggest draws to the Street Fighter series is the sheer number of characters selected, giving players plenty of styles to choose from. With so many characters, the end product is something grand. The same holds true for Capcom Fighting Tribute from UDON, which brings together 250 artists from over 30 countries on six continents. This artistic celebration of fighting games and beat ‘em ups premiered in July at San Diego Comic-Con and is now available everywhere in a prestigious hardcover edition.

Rendered in an endless variety of styles are such classic fighting and beat ‘em up franchises as Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Rival Schools, Red Earth, Star Gladiator, Power Stone, Cyberbots, Capcom Fighting Evolution, Puzzle Fighter, Pocket Fighter, Final Fight, Battle Circuit, Captain Commando, Armored Warriors, Knights of the Round, The King of Dragons, and Avengers (Hissatsu no Buraiken), as well as Capcom original characters Ruby Heart, Son-Son and Amingo. All of that is topped off with a beautiful wraparound cover by legendary Capcom illustrator and character designer Bengus!
