Update (Fri 30th Jun, 2023 15:45 BST): The Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka fighting game exhibit kicks off today in Japan. And luckily for those of us who don't have plane tickets booked to visit the country anytime soon, Street Fighter's Japanese Twitter account has posted some great, new photos of the showfloor (as spotted by Gosokkyu!).
The photos show a timeline of Capcom's fighting games, a bunch of illustrations & crossover art, as well as design docs for Rival Schools.
Original article (Fri 26th May, 2023 14:35 BST): Earlier today, Capcom announced that next month will see the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum in Japan put on a special crossover exhibition focusing on the developer's classic fighting games, including Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, and Rival Schools (thanks Gosokkyu!).
The exhibition called "Tezuka Fighting Universe: CAPCOM VS. Osamu Tezuka CHARACTERS" will feature a bunch of new crossover art depicting Osamu Tezuka's characters alongside popular fighters from various Capcom games.
In addition to this, it will also have on display a bunch of cool documents and rarely-seen artwork, to give people a better insight into how games like Street Fighter were originally made.
It follows a 2020 exhibition "CAPCOM VS. Osamu Tezuka CHARACTERS", which also took place in the Osamu Tezuka museum, before being revived later in 2021 inside the PARCO shopping center situated in Ikebukuro, Tokyo.
The new exhibition will run from June 30th to October 29th, so if you're lucky enough to find yourself visiting Japan at the time, we imagine this will be well worth a visit!
