1 through 5
It’s been a long road for Capcom’s classic one-on-one fighting game. From the days of the original Street Fighter to the mega-hit SFII and all the way up to the still very much living SFV, Ryu and company have become gaming mainstays.
As a publisher, Udon has produced a whole bunch of books based on that classic franchise. Those range from comics to art books and everything in-between, and that’s where the latest falls with Street Fighter Memorial Archive: Beyond The World.
This new tome digs into the three decades of SF lore and history. Expect art, yes, but also lots of cool behind-the-scened stuff as well.
Jump in and learn about the history of the franchise from classic game art galleries and multiple interviews with artists, designers, and developers. Dive into Street Fighter lore through hundreds of character profiles pulled from the Shadaloo Combat Research Institute. Be blown away by epic tribute artwork from the likes of Katsuya Terada, Yusuke Murata, Rockin’Jelly Bean, Bengus, Akiman, Shinkiro, Kiki, Kinu Nishimura, and many more top illustrators from the worlds of manga, animation, and video games. There’s something for every Street Fighter fan in this jam-packed titanic tome!Udon
