Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka Art Exhibit


"Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka" is not a fighting game (unfortunately), but it is an upcoming Art Exhibit set to take place in Japan on October 23rd, 2020. The event will be held in Takarazuka City, Hyogo and will feature works from a variety of artists to celebrate characters from both worlds. Osamu Tezuka is a Japanese manga artist who created Astro Boy, Metropolis, Apollo's Song, Kimba the White Lion, and many others... earning him titles such as the "Father of Manga" and "Godfather of Manga." FUN FACT: Mega Man himself was heavily inspired by Astro Boy, who even appeared as a cameo in the first game's ending. Scroll down for official artwork from the event. *This article will be updated with more content in October 2020!

[UPDATE] 10/14/2020  Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka - Art Exhibit update: The first piece of collaboration character art has been released. BEHOLD!  Astro Boy drawn by Capcom (Keisuke Mizuno of Megaman fame)... and Mega Man drawn by Osamu Tezuka (Tsunogai), naturally!

Savvy fighting game fans will immediately recognize the inspiration behind Bengus's promo art (above). The legendary artist recreated his own MVC1 poster theme using new Capcom characters joined by Osamu Tezuka icons. Of course, Chun-Li and Megaman are popular enough to appear in both posters.
