UDON Announces Art of Capcom: Complete Edition
Continuing on their quest to strengthen the coffee tables of fighting game enthusiasts everywhere, Udon Entertainment has announced The Art of Capcom: Complete Edition, which will make its debut at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con in July.
Udon’s Art of Capcom: Complete Edition will collect over 10 years of Capcom artwork into one 600-plus page volume. combining the two previous Art of Capcom releases and adding over 75 new pages of shiny Capcom artwork from games like Capcom Fighting Evolution, Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, and Super Street Fighter II HD Remix. Everything from sprite art and game box art to comic art and toy designs will be featured, making it a crucial addition to any Capcom fan’s bookshelf. The press release calls it a “monument to UDON and Capcom’s decade-long partnership in creating amazing artwork.”
San Diego Comic-Con attendees will have the ability to purchase the book with an exclusive wrap-around dust cover (pictured above) designed by longtime Udon artist Joe Ng. The cover has been created in homage to Capcom artist Kinu Nishimura’s Capcom Design Works covers and features the entire Capcom universe. We see obvious games like Street Fighter and Mega Man, but we also see a few more obscure titles like Rival Schools and Red Earth represented.
No price has been revealed for the new book, but you can bet it’ll be a sizable, potentially three-figure investment, especially if you’re planning on purchasing on the San Diego Comic-Con show floor.
