Just around 12:30 noon today, i’ve received my long-awaited Street Fighter 20th Anniversary Artbook. It took a week for the item to arrive since my middleman (morgan) said the seller posted this last saturday. Perhaps the delay was due to malaysia’s custom check? i dunno.
This 320 Page book covers a massive collection of Capcom’s Street Fighter artwork ranging from the oldest to latest ones drawn by various illustrators including the recently-moved Shinkirou from SNK. Meaning, anything that has to do with SF is inside the book.. both originals & crossovers (all except xmen vs series). The book is priced around 64.99usd to 58.90usd atm but it’s worth it if you’re a fan of the series. The paper quality suits best with it’s price, it’s quite thick and is glossy (dunno what type of paper is it anyway).
I am not a hardcore fan of street fighter, but i’ve played it since the NES years of Street Fighter II Turbo when i was about 6 years old back then. So the art really push me back to those years when fighting games are talk of the town. :D If you haven’t purchased capcom artbooks before, then this should be the best choice since it contains all artworks that were released on the previous books plus newer ones.
