Udon, continuing their focus on Capcom properties, are publishing a two-volume Street Fighter manga series, titled Street Fighter Gaiden. The short series focuses around the classic cast of World Warriors from Street Fighter II.

 

Here’s a quick summary from Udon:

 

“Written and drawn by Mami Itou (Darkstalkers/Red Earth, ROBOT, Pilgrim Jäger), Street Fighter Gaiden spotlights the World Warriors’ adventures outside the tournament scene. The series is made up of short stories each devoted to a classic Street Fighter character.

 

Fan-favorites like Ryu, Ken, Chun-li, and Guile each get their due, as do many other skilled fighters. Cammy teams up with Delta Red against the narcisitic Vega, T. Hawk has a desert showdown with Balrog, Fei-Long teaches everyone what it truly means to be a martial artist, and Ryu & Ken face off together against their deadliest rival – Akuma!”

 

Street Fighter Gaiden vol.1 will go on sale in North America on November 24th. Volume 2 will follow in January of 2011.
