Earlier today a curious product popped up on Amazon. It's a 200+ page book called the Capcom 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia, which is currently listed to come out on October 21st. The details are as follows:
"Full of facts, statistics, and historical information, the Capcom 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia will offer any fan of Capcom's illustrious library of video games insight and background for all of their favorite characters and video game series. The Capcom 30th Anniversary Character Encyclopedia celebrates Capcom's 30 years in the industry and gives fans concise information about every major Capcom character, their key artwork, statistics, background information, and interesting notes on the history of each character and game franchise. Including almost 200 characters from the Capcom family, this Character Encyclopedia sheds new light on these characters in a way nothing else does!"
Surprisingly, the book is not being handled by UDON Entertainment. Rather, Brady Games; a subsidiary of DK Publishing (makers of some mighty fine encyclopedias). There's bound to be plenty of Mega Man content within, so this is definetly a product we will be keeping tabs on.
You can preorder your copy right now for $12.65 (normally $16.99).
