Pre-orders for hardcover editions of Udon Entertainment’s The Art of Street Fighter are open ahead of the books’ July 2021 debut. In each case, the series’ most recognizable heroine is on the cover. The standard hardcover edition features Chun-Li with Cammy and Rose. Meanwhile, Udon’s exclusive online edition puts Chun-Li in a bathing suit.
The standard hardcover edition will be widely available. It is 448 pages long and has art inspired by Street Fighter I-IV. It will cost $59.99.
Here’s the book’s full cover art.
The Udon Store’s exclusive version of the book will be more elaborate. The cover has a wraparound design inspired by a Chun-Li swimsuit pin-up drawn by Akiman. It also doesn’t just give you the 448-page book. It also includes an Akiman Shadaloo’s Secret Headquarters double-sided poster. (One side is in English, and the reverse is in Japanese.) It is the more expensive option, however. It costs $100.
Here’s a better look at the Udon Store’s special edition, complete with its poster.
Udon originally published The Art of Street Fighter back in August 2014. That version was a paperback release. It since went out of print. As a result, people might find it going for over $90 used via other retailers.
The Art of Street Fighter hardcover and Udon Store Exclusive versions will ship on July 20, 2021.
