Street Fighter and Capcom Art Books - What Every Die-Hard Fan Needs...

Although art books based on video games are much more popular over in Asia than in most parts of the world (often forcing hardcore fans to pay through the nose for imported copies), that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on two of the most insightful, beautiful ones out there. Yes, that’s right. Two of the best Street Fighter/Capcom art books – Eternal Challenge and Udon’s Art of Capcom – are available right in the United States to purchase.



If you’re a die-hard fan of Street Fighter (or just love the art style used throughout the games), then you can’t afford to miss Street Fighter: Eternal Challenge. Although it is currently out of print (and the cheapest copy currently selling for the obscene amount of $104.97 on Amazon.com), it is the definitive book on all things Street Fighter. Featuring plenty of stunning full-color illustrations, biographies on all of the characters, and tons of info on the series, this is a must have for any Street Fighter fan.

Available on the 15th of this month, Udon’s Art of Capcom not only features a ton of art from the Street Fighter series but of many Capcom games in general. From Mega Man to Devil May Cry, if Udon made a comic for the series, it’ll be in here. This monstrous 304-page art book will be on my to-buy list once it hits in the middle of the month. Better purchase it before it goes out of print and sellers charge outrageous prices for it…

I liked the cartoon, but the movie was dreadful.
