Street Fighter X Tekken Artworks Pitches Battle

The age-old hypothetical best of fight between Tekken and Street Fighter has been waged between respective fan bases for nearly a decade now. While the debate likely won't be settled anytime soon, at the very least fans will be given a chance to see which characters look better.

Street Fighter X Tekken Artworks hits stores August 29 and features 192-pages, including character artwork, rough sketches, costume designs and creator commentary. It features all the main players from both franchises, while supplementing them with illustrations with designers.

The book will set you back $39.99 and will be available in stores and at PAX Booth #3828.
