  1. Seeing new art always makes me feel more inclined to buy books like this, even though I am not really a fan of other Capcom titles. Still, I am really considering getting this book just to see the amazing artwork.

  2. First off the hell with this undoubtedly mostly Capcom fighting game artbook with cameos of Sir Arthur with Jill, Chris, Clare and maybe Leon with shoutouts to DMC and Monster Hunter and hints that Mega Man characters exists but only if they have appeared in a fighting game.

    Second what the hell Ryu, you need to chill.

    1. They have to single Ryu out.

      Can't not push Street Fighter.

    2. Confirmed for 2016: "Ryu vs. Capcom". With 12 different Ryus!

  3. I was not impressed with the first Art of Capcom book, at least in regards to Mega Man. I could count the number of pages where the series appeared with one hand. There's probably more in this edition, but I would suggest looking at it before you buy if that's all you're interested in.

  4. Lots of Rival Schools love! <3
