Street Fighter 2 North American Manual Art & Bios


Street Fighter series director and designer, Takayuki Nakayama, recently shared some photos from an official North American Street Fighter II: World Warrior manual from 1992. On Twitter, Nakayama posted several pages from the "Capcom Style Guide" manual, showing rare & highly nostalgic character concept artwork, along with full written bios of the original cast (and even entertaining descriptions of their iconic special moves)! The official character bios also include high-res artwork from the North American artist behind the iconic Street Fighter II: World Warrior, Champion Edition & Turbo home version box artwork, Mick McGinty.
