Publisher Udon is bringing its Darkstalkers art book back from the dead to celebrate the Capcom fighting game’s 25th anniversary.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen this one. Udon’s Darkstalkers art book is a complete art resource for the famed Capcom fighter, loaded up with “artwork and history!”
It’s been out of print for a good ten years according to the company, but now it’s on the way back to retail. The reason, is that it’s Darkstalkers 25th anniversary, as hard as that might be for some to believe (cough).
The new edition won’t be exactly the same as the previously available one however. This new version will be done in hardcover format, giving it a little formal bump for the big event.
DARKSTALKERS: OFFICIAL COMPLETE WORKS is the ultimate compilation of Darkstalkers artwork and history! The book collects the spectacularly haunting artwork behind every Darkstalkers game, including key visuals, character illustrations, promotional artwork, rough concepts, and creator commentary. Also featured are multiple interviews with the creators behind the series, plus tribute pin-ups from your favorite Capcom artists, such as Bengus, Daigo Ikeno, Tamio, and more!Udon press release
Darkstalkers: The Official Complete Works arrives in stores this October the 22nd. It’ll run you $49.99 USD and you can pre-order here.
