Since launching in the winter of 2002, Street Fighter Galleries has grown a great deal. However, for the sake of memories, I've included all
my past updates here, dating back to early 2003. Enjoy!
25th July, 2015
With Ken and Necalli both confirmed for SFV, 8 of 16 characters have been revealed, way before the game even has an official release date. This sounds like Decapre all over again. Anyways, Capcom Japan's SFV page has some official art for the new fighters. The art is on backgrounds, but some day we'll have clean art. For today's update is the four new fighters and a poster both courtesy of that site. I'm digging it!!!
SFV: Series 1
16th July, 2015
Having gone back recently to get alternate color swaps for a lot of games, I looked at Marvel Super Heroes and grabbed alternate win-screen shots for all characters (there's no alt for Dr. Doom or Thanos). Adding to the unnecessary, here's an updated gallery (which hadn't been touched in about a decade!) to MSH
15th July, 2015
As promised, many of the updates I've been sitting on are getting a nice roll-out, especially after I stated the site was effectively 'done' in a prior update. Nope! Today's update consists solely of Street Fighter Zero 3 artwork, though nothing is truly glorious. Most are just fixes and minor additions. I will thank -Whiplash- for providing me with some missing SFZ3UU character rips. Rather than go through all the updates, I'll just refer you to the SFZ3 page as it now has seven galleries (two being duplicates). The largest update is to Series 2A which is palette swaps of all 25 arcade characters. There's my nifty mouseover script to reduce the number of images on a page, but here's a Vega sample. I don't know what else I'm backlogged on. Hopefully there's something more in the near future!
SFZ3 Portraits: Vega
9th July, 2015
Still backlogged on some galleries but I'll be out of town for a few, so why not toss something new up. This gallery is the artwork from the victory screens from Street Fighter III: New Generation. The art comes from the official artbook from that game that someone scanned. The scans are not the greatest quality, Oro's art is particularly washed out, but the rest are quite good and in decent resolution (~500x700 for the most part). It's the sixth gallery from that game and this time I made the thumbnails a bit bigger. Gone are the low-bandwidth days of 2003! In any event, these are cool, I'll give two larger samples and will be back next week to hopefully toss up some more! Enjoy!
SFIII: New Generation: Victory Screens
12th June, 2015
So I'm updating all this old stuff (SFZ3 is like 17 years old now...*sigh*) and *BAM*, Street Fighter V info. I should
have known, being E3 and all. Anyways, here's a quick update! Street Fighter V Art! Need I say more? These are from Shoryuken and they're all high-res images (but have backgrounds). Enjoy the first official gallery from the fifth entry! I'm psyched!
SFV: Series 1
7th June, 2015
I have a handful of updates coming up and considering my motivation goes in waves, I don't want to lose the momentum. If (and when) that happens,
I'll be left with a bevy of updates that I've forgotten to let you know about. So, the first of a few new gallery updates is from
Super Street Fighter II X. In August of 2014 I went through the game capturing all of the endings. Like so many other galleries, there those captures sat on the hard drive. Until today! So, the sixth gallery for SSF2X comes in the form of a
low-res endings gallery. Enjoy!
31st January, 2015
I haven't updated in a year? Wow...it's hard to believe it's been that long, but once again, I've exhausted almost all of my art possibilities and I
dare say this site is nearly complete! Well, there's no worry, more art will always come in and while this announcement is from a few weeks ago, I thought
it was time to share. Street Fighter V, a number we all seriously never thought we'd see, has been announced. Three characters are known (Ryu, Chun-Li
and Nash) and...that's about it. Since that's all old news, all I have to update is an image of the logo. I might as well include the promoted box art too, as it's
the only piece of art we have. Of course I'm interested...now the wait!!!
29th March, 2014
Strange that Capcom announced USFIV so long ago. Teasing us with four characters and a new fifth character eight months ago (with several still left until release) was odd. Regardless of the
warning signs (that we wouldn't be in love with this new fighter) the hype train built and when Decapre was announced, let's just say people weren't so enthusiastic. However I think she will be a good addition; rounding out the cast at 44 and putting a close to the Street Fighter IV nobody ever believed would come out. I find it remarkable that SFIV was announced over six years ago. I look forward to getting USFIV.
So, while Decapre was underwhelming to many, this site is devoted to art and I simply couldn't leave her out! I've added the fifth character to the USFIV gallery and figured
I'd share some of the sprite rips I did ages ago for my personal site. I ripped several sprites of Decapre from SFZ3 and
posted them on the 21st of March, 2005. Wow, 9 years ago this past week!!! Anyways here's her official artwork and those sprites for your
SFZ3 Decapre Rips
26th October, 2013
It's been two months without an update but today has a quick, cool poster update. I'm still pretty psyched about Ultra Street Fighter IV and I'm certainly excited to see the expanded roster and tweaks to the final SF4 game. It's hard to believe we waited SO long for a fourth iteration and now it's been out for five years already! Anyways, with the news
issued yesterday about the new double supers & red focus attacks also came a cool poster which is highlighted below. A small update but I'm happy things are still trickling out. I imagine the next update will feature artwork for the fifth added character...whoever that ends up to be!!! Enjoy!
26th August, 2013
After updating both the Street Fighter III and Street Fighter IV indexes, it was time to clean up the
Street Fighter II page. This now contains logos for all twelve (!12!) SF2 titles and links to all the galleries as well. It's
not really anything that wasn't already on the site. However, it's cleaned up and a bit more organized. I'm happy with it! Here's an animated logo just because.
19th July, 2013
Just a quick update on Ultra Street Fighter IV. I've tossed up images of the character's alternate outfits. These
are official Capcom designs and I figured why not put them online!? There are just the four and there's also a poster of the game,
all from Capcom Unity. That marks the 108th art gallery (+ 6 misc) on these pages. Quite nice indeed! Enjoy!
19th July, 2013
I haven't updated any of my sites in quite a while. After all these years, I've lost a little inspiration. It comes and it goes,
though, and I fully expect to feel the rekindled love with web editing. In addition, the SF world has been lacking in
true news, so it's been convenient.
This past week, however, there was a pretty big announcement. Ultra Street Fighter IV!!! I have to say I didn't see
this coming, but it's a delightful addition to the SF4 world and I think this will be the last update we get. For $15 (DLC) or
$40 (retail), I think it looks like an awesome package. I endeavor to get the new character artwork up soon, but for now, here's
the game logo in all its glory! I'm pretty psyched about this...even if my competitive SF days are far behind me. :)
OK, fine...I'll update the art. Might as well cash-in on this inspiration. Only four new character portraits, so check them
all out here.
24th January, 2013
Back in the winter of 2002, I came down with bronchitis. As a child, I would often get it around my birthday and in my mid-20s it happened again.
I was 26 years old and very ill. As I sat at home, I came up with the plans that would eventually be Street Fighter Galleries. It took a good
three years before the site would officially be done as I changed designs a few times and tweaked things. However, as I was still very much into
web design and I wanted a way to collect all the awesome Street Fighter art in one place, I was excited about the endeavor.
Now it's 11 years later and I'm approaching my late-30s. It's remarkable how certain things are precisely as they were back them (Love me some SF!)
but others are so outrageously different (four kids?!?!) As I emerged from a long hospital stay and recover, it reminds me of those old days of web design.
Of course I started all this back in '95, so by 2002 I was already a veteran. But now SFG is 11 years old and I'm still proud to be at the helm,
updating with the awesome art Capcom has published over the 25 years of SF history. In celebration of this anniversary, I started putting
together a massive amount of updates. What started as a goal to hit 100 galleries has changed to a huge overhaul of almost half the site. In fact, this
update alone is the largest since the site launched over a decade ago. There's no real easy way to cite all the updates - but I'll let you know what's
new and what's changed.
So...all in all, that's a BIG update. The biggest of thanks to Arcade Gear (Formerly Jap-Sai) as
a lot of the new material comes from their oustanding site. I still have a few little things to do, but as I'll be returning to work soon, I wanted to
make sure I got this update posted in time for the big anniversary. It's not so big...this is all I'm going to really post about it. Still 11 years
later, there are 106 galleries on this site (+6 misc ones) and I'm damn proud to have it going so long. Enjoy the updates and let me know if you like
what you see!
Capcom barely celebrated Mega Man's 25th anniversary with the epic Street Fighter
X Mega Man downloadable title. I checked it out, briefly. While I didn't give it the time it deserves,
partly because I didn't have a game pad plugged in (doing that with a keyboard is a nightmare), I did take a
few minutes to capture the character artwork. It's nothing super special, and the
entire gallery will be previewed below. However, it's the 93rd gallery
on the site (with 6 misc. galleries) which means the next will be the 100th. That's kinda cool. OK, here's
your preview and have a happy and safe new year if I don't post before then!
24th December, 2012
Today has been a good day for Vampire/Darkstalkers. First off, I finally published my
sprawling Vampire Savior FAQ which covers ever single iteration of
the awesome third game in the series. Seeing as how there are three arcade titles and seven home ports, there's a lot to cover. I'm
proud of the lot so check it out if you so desire.
Finally, the last pieces of artwork for Vampire Resurrection have come out and they round
out one of the strongest art galleries I've ver seen by Capcom. I'll let you decide for yourself, but the sample here is
for Pyron - So cool! Enjoy this and your Christmas. Safe new year too! Remember, 2013 is the 10-year anniversary of this site.
1st December, 2012
Street Fighter Galleries is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary. What started out
as a simple hobby, a means to collect art for myself, it has grown beyond my expectations. I've
just uploaded my 90th full gallery and decided to make some changes to one section of the site.
Today's main update is for the upcoming Vampire / Darkstalkers Resurrection release
coming in March. The collection of Vampire Hunter / Night Warriors
and Vampire Savior / Darkstalkers 3 is coming out and I've been
doing a lot of research on the multiple games for a potential FAQ. Here's your sample of the
art as Capcom Japan has started posting the new character portraits.
It turns out they're really quite good. I'll continue updating with art as it's revealed.
That's some awesome stuff right there. However, like I mentioned, there was more to this update. I've
decided to include all the Vampire / Darkstalkers games to the left navigation. There are now
five sets of games there and their convoluted history has been fun to research. While this site is obviously
dedicated to Street Fighter, the art of these games is certainly worthy of place on this site. This
is a small thing, but with another Vampire game coming out in the future, I expect more galleries
to come. I can't wait.
4th November, 2012
Last weekend I got the inspiration to do something stupid. I captured all of Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha's
character art again, this time including all the color swaps. It was a useless endeavor, but the end product is kind of cool.
I used my familiar mouseover script to reduce the number of entries on the page. Since I captured all the alternate characters as well
(Shin Gouki, Evil Ryu, Chun-Li's classic outfit, SSF2 colors and Sakura's extra set of swaps), it was a large number, over 130 in
all. Check them out if you care to. I kept the original gallery for
those not interested in such ridiculousness.
I have quite enjoyed this new resurgence of art and activity on this site. As my
Tony Hawk Site was recently
torn from my hands unexpectedly, this is
now my 2nd-longest running site. In any event, the new news is about Darkstalkers Revenge, a
collection of the second and third titles in the awesome Vampire / Darkstalkers
series of games. Now, they omitted the first game, understandably, but I'm not really sure how Darkstalkers 3
fits in. I realize it came out on the PS1 with that title, but the original arcade game (which is what we're
emulating here) had a convoluted release history. Vampire Savior, Vampire Savior 2 and
Vampire Hunter 2 are all slightly different. I'll have to see if I still have Darkstalkers 3 somewhere
Back on task, today is just a poster from the new collection, much like what I did with Marvel
Vs. Capcom Origins. No new dedicated art, but a logo and a poster will have to do! Enjoy!
So, what we have today is just fixes for existing galleries, really. Both ripped artwork in
MSF (series #2 and series #3)
have been re-captured with all the characters and colors. This includes Mephisto, US Agent, Mech Gouki, Dark
Sakura, Armored Spider-Man and Mega Zangief. What once was art I disliked, I've come to really enjoy.
On to Marvel Vs. Capcom, the release of Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins has
really made me look back fondly to this time of my life. This is just prior to 3D taking over everything in gaming
(it had started, I realize, but 2D still had a foothold). In any event, I went back and recapped the
win poses gallery. Like MSF, this includes alternate colors and all hidden
fighters (Shadow Lady, Orange Hulk, Lilith, Carnage, Mega War Machine and Roll). I ought to head back to the
Supers 2 gallery and redo those. Perhaps. Perhaps.
I think that's enough for the day. Ultimately, these are just small updates and I've added no new galleries.
It's OK though. I still really enjoy this site. Hopefully you enjoy the art galleries as much.
1st October, 2012
After the last update, I figured why not check out the other gallery from XSF and look at this?
The same problem as before! So, once again here you'll get the full artwork for each character (two for
Chun-Li) as well as both color variants (mouseover them). Apocalypse is featured here, but not in full
res. The same thing as yesterday. I love this stuff!
1st October, 2012
There are still some galleries that need editing/uploading but I haven't had the time as of late. In addition,
there are some more behind-the-scenes updates that I haven't posted (and more to complete). However, as
Marvel Vs. Capcom Origins has just launched on both the PS3 and Xbox360, I felt the urge to revisit
yesteryear and check out the titles that kept us going to arcades in the late 90s. It's funny, because
by then, the arcade was (in many places) dying out. It felt like the heyday (SF2 - 1992!) was so
far away, but in reality, it was just a few years removed. Now, it's 15 years since these titles graced
the arcade...and alas! I feel old.
OK, back on task. There are two cool updates today.
This got me interested so I checked out some old stuff. Specifically, I figured I'd capture the alternate colors for
characters in X-Men Vs. Street Fighter (can someone tell me why XSF and MSF weren't
included?) I had done the alternate color thing in one MSF gallery, and thought it looked
cool. However, upon checking out what I had, I realized I was missing something! Now, considering I'm losing my mind
taking care of kids while on vacation, this small thing is actualy exciting for me! You can see in the comparison below
what the issue was. I had captured images from when a character used a super rather than the larger image from the
character select screen. I'm pretty psyched and think the 'new' gallery looks rather awesome. You have alternate
colors for all characters (mouseover them!) but Apocalypse is from my old captures and is smaller. I hope you enjoy these!
More to come as always!!!
12th March, 2012
I managed some updates behind the scenes in the last few months. I had a log file but I have since lost it. Not entirely sure what I updated, but
I know for certain there was a new Street Fighter Zero 2 gallery uploaded. With today's update, I think that makes a total of
90 galleries on the site. Not too shabby for a site that's like 10 years old or something!
However, today's update is artwork from Street Fighter X Tekken. It's a pretty good game, a fun romp, if you will. The
gallery in question covers avatars that were made available on the PSN this past week. The images are cool, smaller versions of
the artwork I need to get on the site. For now, it'll do though, and I included the Tekken characters too. Enjoy this and I hope to get the rest up soon!
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike - Online Edition is out and of course, I had no choice but to purchase it. Of course, I have
it on the Dreamcast (all 3 SF3 games) and on the PS2...but one last time can't hurt! Scouring the net I found both the
avatars and full set of high-res artwork! Many thanks to Creative Uncut, a source
I'll use again for some other incomplete sets of mine. These are all awesome and look spectacular. I'll toss up a preview and you
should enjoy my first update in over a year!
I tossed up a Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 gallery, using some good high-res images. There will be plenty more to come. I've also gone through the Game List, bringing it closer to being up-to-date. There is now a link to the Logo Collection to the left, also brought up-to-date. Actually, I'm missing a few, and I plan on getting Tatsunoko vs. Capcom stuff up as well as the new info on Street Fighter X Tekken (and later Tekken X Street Fighter). But I did toss up a quick image of the Online Edition of 3rd Strike. So much new stuff! Enjoy!
28th February, 2010 - Three More Four
Three more images from Super Street Fighter IV. The latest include Dudley, Makoto and Ibuki, the folks from Street Fighter III.
Brief update today, but also a reminder that this site launched 8 years ago this month. I'm sick this weekend, much as I was then. I was really sick back in 2002 and I rested by crafting a new site! 8 years. That's crazy.
19th November, 2009 - More IV
Some new images have been posted over at Capcom Unity and I've compiled them into the SSF4 Page. You can now find Dan, El Fuerte and Rufus. Of course, the big news today is that Adon, Cody and Guy are all verified as well for the new game! I'm kinda happy about Adon, but couldn't care less about the Final Fight guys. I never liked them in the Zero series. That brings our new fighters up to 6 (Dee Jay, T. Hawk, Juri, and these 3). I think they said there would be 8, so what's left? I sure would like a pair of new fighters. I don't particularly need to see anyone from SF3. I think 3 new fighters would be a pretty cool addition, but I doubt we'll see that. More to come!
1st October, 2009 - Super Street Fighter IV!!!
Update: 5th October
Sagat and C. Viper's images are now available in the section below, all courtesy of Capcom Unity!
Update: 2nd October
Dee Jay's pic has also been uploaded as well! I like this new set of art already!
It was no surprise that it was coming, but I'm totally psyched about the unveiling of Super Street Fighter IV. I found that SF4 did everything right. It mixed every classic element and character, with updated visuals while staying true to the 2D plane. It was easier to get into for the average gamer yet felt deep enough for the more advanced user. It was fun, looked great, sounded great and had a great mix of new and old (focus on old). Mixing it up with this update, I am just pumped. So, the first official art is out and you can find
the updates in the Logo Gallery, the Site Map, and of course in the
Street Fighter IV pages. Only two shots for now, but the official art for Dee Jay, T. Hawk and Juri will be coming soon, I'm sure. I'll post both shots and note that I linked to sexy high-res versions. Read: they're large pics!
Back in 2003 I scanned a few images from my Street Fighter EX2 Plus strategy guide. The art for the game was awesome, but I never got around to scanning and editing the whole lot. There they sat, for 6 long years. I figured I'd toss them up. They're good scans and are are in nice high resolution. For a sample, here's the whole lot. Perhaps one day I'll get to the rest, I don't see it happening any
time soon though!
Street Fighter EX 2
I went back and recapped one of the sets of art from Marvel Vs. Capcom. The final set here consisted of JPGs, another
bad choice on my part from like 6 years ago. GIFs now for the most part look the same, but are better quality. I wonder what else there is I've
missed. Brought other parts of the site up-to-date and tidy too. 7 years old! Wow!
23rd December, 2008 - MSF Update
Another old gallery of JPG files. Urgh! This stuff is old, probably from back in 2002-2003. I was a mere novice!
Anyways, I went through an old Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter gallery and got rid of the poor shots that I had. Once again I've tossed up the alternate outfits for this one (mouseover the image). Take a peek at the second MSF gallery for more! I've got to admit, it's pretty ugly stuff...I really never liked the artwork from the game, but hey, it had to be done!
28th November, 2008 - SFIV Update
I'm away on Thanksgiving vacation but I'll be back tonight and will likely try to get some SSFIITHDR in! For anyone interested, I'm planettonyhawk on PSN. While I've (obviously) played SF consistently over the years, this really feels like a throwback to me. Most times I've played home versions or *coughemulationcough*. Arcades in my areas have been dead for a long time.
Anyways, the real purpose of this update...I fixed up the Street Fighter IV gallery. The image of Gouken was a mess (must've been the upload). I tossed up a new version of that and also posted Fei Long and Dan images. They're not the best IMO. Their quality feels like an afterthought. After cool images like
Sagat's, these look cheesy. The whole set is of differing quality and resolutions. Many of the images are very dark and I haven't gone in to touch them up.
Oh, speaking of, I came across this image quite a while ago. Surely you've seen it by now. With the release of SFIV on consoles nearing (mid-February), the cast has yet to be finalized. This image gives away some new names. Spoiler Warning...If you don't want to know, well, don't click on that image, and don't read the following! It appears that both Gen and Rose are part of the cast as well! Looking pretty good, but that image may be a mockup. That's all for today.
26th November, 2008 - SSF2THDR Art!
The long wait is over! Super Street Fighter II Turbo: HD Remix is out and I've been enjoying it on the Playstation 3! (Don't want to pay $50/yr to play online on the 360!) Apparently an assets disc was released to the public, we may have some additional art to come, but for now, from Sirlin.net, I've got a gallery of all the characters' portraits. It's great stuff and is nice and crisp in HD! Logo, then sample. Click on!
I've updated the Street Fighter IV gallery a few times over the last few months, as new characters were revealed. With the news of Gouken, the cast is up to 19. They're not going to change his name for the US release, are they? Anyways, check out the gallery for high quality versions of all the characters!
Oh, and another thing...I haven't had the time to do the editing like I used to, but I did stop off earlier this month and do some captures from my favorite SF ever, SFZ2A! I went back and capped all of Shin Gouki's sprites. This made the tally a riidculous 53 different images for the same sprite. It was fun, however stupid it may be. Check out every Ryu/Ken/Dan/Gouki sprite in almost every game over at my
my personal site here. There are a bunch of other images over there as well, so feel free to peruse the collection!
29th March, 2008 - MVC Selection/Supers Art
I had a pretty bad day. It's been 6 years since starting this site and almost 13 since my first site. One thing that still helps me out is old-fashioned editing. Capturing, some Photoshop magic, uploading, HTML editing and seeing the final product. It may be a small thing, but it can let me forget about the world and enjoy myself.
Anyways, I went through the Marvel Vs. Capcom section and noticed the half-face images were all stored as JPGs. Sure, larger versions, but inferior quality. So, I recapped them, including the bonus character and then opted to go for the alternate colors as well. I usually skimp out on those. Take SSF2X for example, 8 colors for each character? I think that explains it all! Well, I decided to go for it here and even included a mouseover script so you can see the alternates on the fly. It looks cool and was well worth my time.
So demanding with the samples...
MVC Half Faces
9th March, 2008 - MVC2 Gallery Complete
I've had poor resolution shots of Magneto and Storm in the MVC2 gallery for ages. Thanks to Henry and
the excellent Inventiveflow, we have good quality versions of each. A small but very welcome update! Thanks!
2nd March, 2008 - SSF2X Icons
Pretty useless update. Felt the need to capture icons from SSF2X. These are next to the life bar when in a match. Small images,
and pretty much unnecessary, but they can be found here.
19th February, 2008 - SFZ2 Background Concept Art Additions
In the beginning of the Versus strategy guide were the two hidden stages in SFZ2. I didn't see these initially. The large versions are at a lower res than the rest, but they're definitely cool. You can see them both in the SFZ2 Background page or links to their bigger versions here (Australia) and
Scouring through other strategy guides, I may have other stuff to scan in. See if I get the time to do so!
13th February, 2008 - SFZ2 Background Concept Art
For those of you who have the Versus Books strategy guide for SFZ2/SFA2, you know that this is one of the best guides ever. A huge book packed with everything, an awesome layout and some cool art at the end, it remains my favorite. I checked it out again a few weeks ago and discovered the concept art for the level backgrounds. These are all fantastic, so I scanned in the entire lot. They're worth checking out and I scanned them all in at 300dpi. Enjoy!
9th February, 2008 - SFIV Official Art!
And here we are, so many years after SF2 came out and changed it all. I recall playing the original SF in the arcade, getting yelled at by my parents for sneaking across the highway to play. I remember the day I saw SF2 in the local arcade. Watching Ryu's animation, bouncing up and down, lines of people waiting to play. SF3's anticipation was almost as incredible as the fluid animation. Now, SF4.
And to think, I started running this site back in 2002. It's been 6 years?!
You know what this update is about. Click through for the first high-res Street Fighter IV official artwork!
21st June, 2007 - SF3 Snaps!
Psyched about this! Certainly you already know of this. Well, my first gallery is
now up! This is SF3:NG Sketches! All 12 characters are included here, and these are awesome. Some have
the insert coin text overlaying, but it'll do for now. Here are your samples!
20th June, 2007 - More Logos
I've put up a bunch of new logos to the Logo Gallery. This includes some of the missing games from before,
SSF2: Tournament Battle, Street Fighter Collections 1 & 2, XSF: EX, MSF: EX and MVC: EX. It's a bit nuts, but
quite cool. Enjoy!
12th June, 2007 - Chun-Li Gallery & Logos
I just started my studies towards my Master's degree and so the next 18 months are going to be hell. I've been spread too thin for a long time now, and this certainly will not help things.
However, there are some old galleries that I've tidied up for presentation. These aren't anything new, but they are cool IMO.
The first is a complete Chun-Li Gallery. It's quite extensive, and includes captures of every color swap in every game + official art. Of course, by extensive, I mean insane, but I've no doubt that someone out there will appreciate it. And by appreciate it, I mean steal everything from it. *sigh*
The second is an exhaustive Logo Gallery. This includes a ton of stuff, US, Euro and Japanese alternate titles (SF2'Plus for instance). Another thing that I did simply b/c I thought it was interesting. Enjoy it! I may have more on there if I get a few other caps. I'm looking for SSF2: Tournament Battle, Darkstalkers 3, and the EX Edition versions of the Marvel Vs. games (all Japanese). There are 69 different logos there now, that could grow fairly easily.
15th April, 2007 - Re-Releases
Looking through some older files on the site, I noticed some hadn't been updated since 2002. That made me think. It was 5 years ago that I had taken ill and created these pages! That was on my birthday in February of 2002. Happy Anniversary to myself! By contrast, my
first site will be turning 12 this year. My, I'm getting old!
Anyways, you may have heard about the impending re-re-releases. Super Street Fighter II X and Super Puzzle Fighter II X
will be released in HD later this year on the PS3, Xbox360 and PC (SPF2X only) platforms, all through online distribution. Seeing as how each have graced virtually every platform since their releases a decade+ ago, this isn't quite newsworthy. However, considering the fact that Udon Comics is redrawing sprites and art for it, this makes it very notable!!! For SSFIIX, it is said that the
graphics themselves will receive a facelift, but the game code shall remain the same. I am a big fan of the SF Comics
art, I'm quite excited about Udon's involvement. For the puzzler, the same shall hold true (also including the recent gameplay
updates for the PSP port). However, they've also released the redrawn art for the series. This makes 3 different versions of the same art
all listed below. Seeing as how it's some of my favorite, I'm not going to complain! The images, posted over at
Gamespot are all in sweet, high-res quality (>1kx1k), so take a peek at the comparisons
below, and head to Series 1b!
Finally, I updated the SF Game List to include these titles and some other ones I had missed. That list is massive!
8th October, 2006 - Gem/Pocket Fighter Caps
Rare double update! Well, I took a peek at Puzzle Fighter and after re-capping stuff yesterday, I wanted to see if larger images
were available. The screen-selection images were rather small, but the win round screens had the full images! All were there,
barring Dan, who you're just given a small sprite. Anyways, I updated series Series 3, again!
Matching the official art in Series 2 of the Gem/Pocket/Puzzle Fighter gallery is the win screen
art from Gem Fighter. These GIFs are the same art, but I like 'em, so I decided to capture them. BTW, Photoshop CS2 has a great
tool in helping make cropping that much easier! Check out the new rips in Series 2a. Samples? Oh, OK.
7th October, 2006 - SPF2X Re-Edits
Someone pointed out to my my overly poor JPG format captures in
Gem/Pocket/Puzzle Fighter gallery #3. Since it was a quick thing to fix, I went back and
re-captured them all in GIF format. Much better quality now! This contains all 10 characters from the
Super Puzzle Fighter 2X game. Good stuff!
29th August, 2006 - SFZ3UU PSP Art
Javier asked me a while ago about getting Maki art from the GBA or PSP version of SFZ3. Unfortunately, other than the
tiny edits I had in the first SFZ3 art series, I didn't have anything. He reminded me of an app for
the PSP which allows you to perform screen captures! Therefore, I've gotten up a few extra bits of art in the SFZ3
galleries! Series 2 contains the 3 new characters portrat art, and
Series 3 has 4 unedited win poses. None are the best quality, and all pale in comparison to the GIFs
I've ripped from the arcade versions, but they'll do, and they complete some of the sets on the site. Enjoy, and many thanks to
1st July, 2006 - SFII Anime US Release
I've just completed another move, hopefully the last for quite some time (purchased a home, expect it to be!) After so many changes, I'm excited about having my own place, however, getting my net connection going is taking some time. Hrmph. In the meantime, I have been informed of the re-release of the SFII anime here in the states. Something I have been looking forward to, this is the real version of the original anime from a decade ago. It's also uncut, so those who have always yearned to see the Chun-Li shower scene should be happy.
What I am unsure of is whether or not this will have the original Japanese audio w/ English subs. Since it's
Manga, I expect it to be. I certainly hope so! For those purchasing, you'll be pleased to know that
Udon Comics is including a mini-comic with the release. I liked their art of the series so much that there's a Comic Cover Gallery here on the site.
The DVD comes out on the 18th of July with pre-booking options starting on the 7th. The full-length movie runs at 110 minutes and carries a $19.98
While I don't have a gallery for this, here are some images from the anime. I definitely look forward to this release and cross my fingers for Japanese dialogue!
5th June, 2006 - CFE/CFJ, SF3:3S, SFEX3
Big update today, something that's taken me a while to get to.
Capcom Fighting Jam / Capcom Fighting Evolution
Well, first off, I have new logos for these, and both look good. Had to edit them, but got them looking quite nice. The big update is a complete set of art, courtesy of
Capcom Europe. This includes all 21 characters (4 each from 5 games) + Ingrid, however Pyron isn't available. All are high resolution and I'm glad to have this art on the site, finally, even if I'm not a fan of the game. Check out the updated
Capcom Fighting Jam / Capcom Fighting Evolution page for more.
Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike
The next 2 updates are from Ryuuko. The first is an addition to the SF3:3S section. This comes in the form of a new poster (and a higher res version of the existing one) and a new set of art! There are still some galleries out there to find, and this is a great one! While I can only find enough to replace half a set of the profiles (what I have isn't the best), this set includes all 20 characters, including Gill and separate art for Yun/Yang. All are very high quality, with the girls Makoto, Chun-Li and Ibuki being somewhat smaller than the others. It's an excellent addition to the site.
Street Fighter EX3
Finally is a long-overdue update to the last installment into the EX series. All 3 major series have had 3 titles, numbered, Zero and EX and the art for the latter is pretty sweet. I'd a pair of galleries prior which were low res and not very good. However, once again thanks to Ryuuko, I've updated the site with a full set of high-res art! Some good stuff in here and almost all characters have a very serious look to them. Highly recommended, as always!
Here are your snapshot previews of the day w/ their accompanying links, of course!
Finally, the Street Fighter Alpha Anthology will be hitting stores this month. It's a long-overdue collection of all the Zero/Alpha titles. I'm almost certain we're looking at a port of Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha from the CPS2 board, rather than Street Fighter Zero 2' / Alpha 2 Gold that appeared on the PS1 and SS. In addition, it's been verified that the 3rd game is a port from the console version of SFZ3/SFA3, which includes all the extra characters. For those wondering, this doesn't include those new fighters that appeared on the GBA/PSP game, nor does it include any enhancements made for SFZ3U which came out in arcades. What a long-convoluted history the series has! In any event, here are some assets you might be interested in regarding the series, including some wallpapers and a pair of humorous commercials (from YouTube)
In checking out Capcom Japan's site, I found the logo for the new SF Zero collection. Titled Street Fighter Zero: Fighter's Generation, the site confirms that it is indeed SFZ2A coming out in the collection. The home port was SFZ2' if you remember, and so this means that it's merely a port. No Shin Gouki, Cammy, etc. Well, it's still a collection and further proves (IMO) that the PS2 is the console of this last generation. Every game I really wanted came out on it, particularly in Japan. Anyways, here's the logo, and an update to the
SF Zero Logo Page has received an update. 18 logos in all for the Zero/Alpha series.
6th March, 2006 - SFAA Logo
Just as I announce that the Alpha Anthology wasn't being released in
Japan, Capcom lists Street Fighter Zero: Fighters Generation as a new title. It's the same as the US collection, but no word about if it's
SFZ2A or SFZ2'. US gamers may not know the differences, but I've
no doubt that the Japanese would. See how they approach this one.
In addition, I'm updating the Game List. The original
Street Fighter has been released recently on the PS2 and Xbox as part
of their Capcom Classics Collection (w/ Remixed as a suffix on the PSP). Also, SF2 has been released on cell phones, though I don't
really keep track of those details. In any event, I've updated the
SF Complete Game List w/ that info. Also included is
the Puzzle Fighter game coming out on a PSP collection and Super
Gem Fighter on the Zero/Alpha collection.
6th March, 2006 - SFAA Logo
Busy as of late, and really not coming up w/ much new art. But, the new collection is going to be released soon, and I came across the less-than-inspired logo. Unsurprisingly, I decided to edit this out from the screenshot. Not a perfect edit, but
it'll do the job. No word from Capcom Japan about a Street Fighter Zero
Collection. Strange that it's just the US. Oh, and I've read that this is really
just a port of SFZ2A from the arcades (Asian version had English text), and not
really SFA2G like they're claiming. This would mean no Cammy, no Shin Gouki
(Sorry, Akuma for the US), and all that stuff. I know my stuff about the
SFZ2A/SFZ2'/SFA2'/SFA2G differences, being that I wrote a
full FAQ on it. If only
Capcom would do something right for SF (a la Rockman Collection).
But no, they have to half-ass everything they do. *sigh* I am looking forward to
Goku Makaimura (Ultimate Ghosts & Goblins) for the PSP. Ho-Hum. Sorry
for the rant. Here's the logo.
16th February, 2006 - SFZ3UU/SFA3M
Got a higher res version of the SFA3M logo and poster. I've updated the SFZ2/SFZ3 Logo Gallery with
the former and the latter can be found here. Haven't gotten a chance to play it on the
handheld yet, but soon I hope to. I use my X-Arcade for all arcade emulation and absolutely despise d-pads for SF, but it'll be worth
to see Eagle, Maki and Yun in better form than on the GBA, and might as well see how comfortable Ingrid feels in this game. Will see!
20th December, 2005 - SFA3M + MSH + Misc
Just wanted to toss this up, I came across the logo to the US version of SFZ3UU. While the Japanese suffix is overkill,
SF Alpha 3 Max just sounds lame to me. Anyways, here's the logo for those interested, also posted in the
SFZ2/SFZ3 Logo Gallery.
I'll be moving again shortly, so I expect some downtime once more. I wanted to toss up some quick bits before doing so.
While still on MSH, I edited one of the coolest Capcom backgrounds ever. This is a huge edit, sizing in at 1334 x 224 and features all 3 levels of parallax (thus the ovular moon!) See this over at my
slateman site here. Finally for this game is
a useless entry into the Selection/Misc Icons page. All the way at the bottom you'll see the character
icons from the corner of the screen. This includes healthy/hurt snaps and also has all 3 hidden characters. Oh, and one last
item from the game, check out my Animated GIFs page for a cool new
edit of Dr. Doom and a P2 version of Psylocke's standing animation.
Since the icon section doesn't fit in anywhere, I've updated the Site Map to include this section
and two others. One was mentioned earlier, it's a SFZ2/SFZ3 Logo Gallery. The other is something
that I've had lying around for a while. This is a SFZ2A Icon Gallery. Barring OC/CC Perfect icons
(must've gotten lazy), it includes every win icon in my favorite SF ever, SFZ2A. This section also features KO, Perfect, Time
Over, and round number screens. It's about as useless as it gets, but I love doing sprites!
And the final update for the moment is based around why I'm moving. This past week I got engaged in NYC and will be moving
way up north to be with my future wife and daughters. It was one of the greatest days of my life, something you can see
clearly in the picture of us mere moments after proposing. I'll be around,
but my time limited for a while. Perhaps I'll dig up some new posters for the site.
30th November, 2005 - SFZ3UU Poster
Street Fighter Zero 3 Double Upper is set for release in January in Japan. The US title is Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max and it is set for February. Now, I think the ceaseless suffix adding is getting silly, but the US always gets the cheesiest names
and box art. It's no wonder ppl find the SF series to be a joke.
Anyways, while it's going to be cool to have a good port of SF on the go, I simply can't stand playing on d-pads. Just not right.
So, I don't expect too much, and Ingrid's inclusion doesn't do much to excite me.
In anticipation though, I found a new poster for the game. Linked to the
official SFZ3UU site, the small image was found over at
The Magic Box. I pieced together the poster from their flash site, but the thumbnail
has a wider field of view and more characters. *shrug* I'll take what I can get, I guess! Today's update is this, and some
small tweaks to the Game List (thanks to Matthias H for pointing out my SFII' error).
Oh, and a later update this morning is to the SF Comics Page. I added the two covers from the
Summer 2004 Special issues as well as #0-2 of the SFII series. The first issue just came out, but I haven't checked this out
yet. Either way, the covers look cool (you can see the issue #0 cover in the July 15th update below).
4th November, 2005 - Capcom Wallpaper
This submission has been in my inbox for a few months. There is no good reason for this.
Tom Kennedy edited the following wallpaper-sized image. It contains over 50 characters from the Capcom universe. An excellent job, this
wallpaper is perfect for any fan of SF or the art found on these pages.
Since the original image is so large, I've posted a few different sizes. For those running 1600x1200 like myself, this fits just nicely! Check
out the sample below, as well as some smaller resolution counterparts.
Please update your bookmarks and email me if you encounter any broken links. Thanks!
24th September, 2005 - Smaller Additions
As October rolls around, my focus will change to the new Tony Hawk games, being the biggest site I maintain. I've come across some smaller things
that I've been meaning on tossing on the pages, and so today's update contains several minor items of interest. Let's see...
First, I ripped some iffy-quality images from the official TGS SFZ3UU video of Ingrid. This includes one image found in the
SFZ3 Series 1 Gallery. The second I didn't categorize and is floating in the SFZ3 page.
This image can be found here.
Second is an update courtesy of Michael W. For the longest time I only had 54 of the 56 characters from Marvel Vs. Capcom
2. Gambit and Storm were submitted, completing the enormous cast. Thanks!
Finally, I missed a link in the last update.
Pure Figure Obsession (mirror)
is a site devoted to all the figures in the SF world. Some cool stuff there, it's just unfortunate it's on a geocities server.
16th September, 2005 - Links Page Updated
Neglected for some time, I've updated the Links Page to reflect some new additions. Also, I removed
any broken ones. As of this writing, all have been verified.
For those who hadn't known, I run another site where I've been housing all the sprites & GIFs I've ripped. While some
sections on these pages contain sprites, I've tried to keep them separate (for some reason). Feel free to check
out my creations here.
7th September, 2005 - Street Fighter Zero 3 Double Upper
Ingrid from Capcom Fighting Jam will be joining the cast of 36 other fighters in the portable
translation of Street Fighter Zero 3 Double Upper. This port will also contain the 3 extra
characters from the GBA game, who joined the 8 extra characters from the PSX (& DC/Arcade) version.
I've added this new title to the Game List and have some new art to share w/ you. The first is the
logo, note the 2 arrows pointing upward. My, the innovations never cease! The second pic is the new shot of Ingrid, matching the SFZ3 Series 2 gallery.
And with that, I'll leave you with this bit of uselessness. Here's a collection of all 6 logos from Zero 2 and
7 logos from Zero 3. It's a small test page I worked on but never completed. Useless but perhaps of interest?
Check it out.
15th July, 2005 - SFII Comic Cover
Posted over at the Shoryuken Forums by Udon, here's a snapshot of the
forthcoming SFII comic book. This will be a separate line of comics from the current series. This is the cover of
the first issue, and it looks pretty damn cool! When the comics come out, I'll toss them in the
Comic Book Cover Gallery. Until then, enjoy this wallpaper-sized pic!
10th June, 2005 - New Game, VS2/VH2 Sketches
This one flew under the radar, understandably so. It turns out there's a new SF game hitting shelves for the PS2 in Japan. Haven't heard
of it have you? Well, it's a gambling game of some sort. I came across this over at Play Asia.
Slotter Up Core 7: Dekitou da Street Fighter II is the official title, thus the crazy acronym above. I don't know anything else about
this, but you can purchase it here from Play Asia. Let me know if you do!
The second update is something I've been meaning to get on the site. In playing the new Vampire: Darkstalkers Collection for the PS2, I
stumbled upon something I missed. The game was recently released in Japan and contains every Vampire/Darkstalkers game to be released. This
includes the variants of the third game, Vampire Hunter 2 and Vampire Savior 2. The intro to these games are very similar but contain
some minor differences. One has an image of Bulleta holding Lilith while the other has
Demitri holding Morrigan. Then, the game flashes to a bunch of very cool sketches.
After seeing this, I had to go capture these and so I did! Some characters will have 2 colors for their sketches, indicating that
they were in both intros. Some characters only have one as they only appeared in one game. However, the full list has a number of cool sketches and
I recommend checking them out. Here is your sample du jour.
22nd February, 2005 - Site Complete!
Almost 3 years to day after starting this site, it is finally complete!
I went through 3 site designs before I settled on this one and so there was some very old code in here. What was once a page to keep track of what I needed to do, here you will find a complete Site Map. Everything on the site should
be contained here.
For anyone interested, I disabled outside referrals. Therefore, if you are trying to use art from these pages as an avatar,
or within a post on a message board, it will not work. I came across some pretty persistent people, so I opted to disable this entirely.
If you have a legitimate reason, please let me know and maybe we can work something out.
Otherwise, I was simply tired of it.
21st February, 2005 - Street Fighter Zero 3 Endings
The 81st gallery on this site came as a bit of a surprise. In capturing sprites for the doll characters in SFZ3, I discovered
that each character had new art for their endings! Going through each character, I found that some had several new pieces of art (Rose - 4)
while others had none (Vega, Birdie). In any event, I captured all of these and tossed together another new gallery for you. It's the
4th gallery for Street Fighter Zero 3 and has some interesting stuff. Only one sample for today:
Adding to the Vampire/Darkstalkers galleries, today's addition is for the upcoming (in the US at
least) release of Vampire Chronicle: The Chaos Tower. While not truly a new game, it will feature new art. Therefore I updated
the main Vampire/Darkstalkers page with some new logos and added
this new gallery of 3 images from IGN.
Vampire / Darkstalkers Chronicle
1st February, 2005 - Namco X Capcom
The recently announced Namco X Capcom was a bit of a surprise. As of now it's 80% done and yet this is the first anyone has heard of it. I can't say I'm expecting much, but I am somewhat interested in it.
In any event, the game is scheduled for release this year. Official character art was posted over at
The Magic Box and I've hosted them here in the first
Namco X Capcom gallery. This contains 8 characters, only 2 from the Street Fighter universe. In addition to Ryu and Chun-Li, confirmed fighters include Ken, Gouki, Vega and Cammy (w/ the other dolls?) It's reported that there will be upwards of 200 characters in this strategy game (yes, it's not a fighter) which spans both companies' universes. For today's update you'll recognize a pair of
Vampire/Darkstalkers characters, Strider Hiryu, Arthur from Makaimura/Ghosts & Goblins, Regina from Dino Crisis and Bruce from the Gun Survivor games. Check the link below for the first of what will likely be a larger gallery of images down the line.
Namco X Capcom
I also updated the Gem/Pocket/Puzzle Fighter pages, bringing them up-to-date. So close to completing this site! And, it turns out that these pages turn 3 years old this week. My birthday arrives next week. Around my birthday in 2002 I had fallen very ill and missed work for a week. During this downtime I created the structure that would eventually become this site. So, 3-year anniversary. Not bad!
24th October, 2004 - SVC, Warzard, CFJ/CFE
A set of art I've been searching for, I stumbled upon over at
Combatrush.co.uk. Along w/ a number of various pieces of art, there lied
a complete set of SNK Vs. Capcom: Chaos. This is the official art, where all I had
up until now was in-game captures. All images are high res and pretty cool. I particularly like the Vega, Zero
and Chun-Li images. Here are your samples:
I almost forgot about the following...A few weeks ago I worked on a pair of new game gallery sets. The new
Capcom game is on the horizon, Capcom Fighting Jam (called Capcom Fighting Evolution in the US).
There is an incomplete set of art over at GameSpot, and with the high res logo
I scanned from my book from E3, I tossed up a CFJ gallery. This only has 11 characters and
some images contain the GameSpot brand on them. Until I get a good set of clean art, this will have to do.
Since the game shares characters with another Capcom game, I I looked into Warzard/Red Earth art. There
is some cool stuff to be found, so I tossed up a pair of galleries and a pair of posters. The first gallery is
character art while the second is background
art. There is some cool stuff in there, and is yet another non-SF gallery, but whatever.
Finally, I've updated older pages and am close to 100% completion in the design of the site. 2 1/2 years after I
started it! See the Progress Page for the site map.
29th September, 2004 - SF Comics
I've been collecting the SF comic books by Udon since issue #0 and have been very happy w/ the art and quality of the book. While the
story suffers from some inconsistency issues, it is an entertaining read and much care has gone into each book. Due to this, and the lack of
new art that I can find, I've opted to put up a complete set of covers from the comics. Included herein are all the alternate covers and some
unmarked ones as well (no title or text). While not official Capcom art, I think they fit in the theme of the site.
After a long session of cleaning up old galleries and bringing them up to date, I am near completion of this web site. Several years after
beginning work on it. There are still some things left to do, the Progress Page covers these and again serves as
a site map.
Today's update is the loss screens from Street Fighter 3. This is the first version of SF3, so the gallery covers
the 11 fighters available. Unfortunately I do not know the source of this art.
Here are the samples:
9th June, 2004 - Host Change
This site has changed servers and the new address is:
Please update your bookmarks. I'll be fixing everything soon, but in the meantime there may be
some broken links. Thanks
3rd February, 2004 - Vampire/Darkstalkers
Having exhausted most of my options when it comes to SF art, I opted to go capturing the art from the
Vampire/Darkstalkers series! Of course the site is still and will remain mainly a SF site.
However, since this series was a big one for Capcom and the art is exceptional, I chose to toss it online.
All are arcade captures and therefore are relatively small. The
Endings Gallery from
Vampire Hunter/Night Warriors is the sole exception as these were
larger images and they came out quite well! There is some fantastic stuff here, so take a peek!
26th December, 2003 - SF2CE, SSF2
From the same site as the last update comes two new sets! AtPictures.com was the source for
these 2 new pages, one for SF2:CE and the other for SSF2X. Both are missing several characters (E. Honda, M. Bison and T. Hawk (SSF2X only)), but the sets are quite nice otherwise. Here are some snaps.
23rd December, 2003 - MORE Vs, SSF2X
Rounding out my Vs. series coverage, I came across some art from the NeoGeo Pocket Color version of SNK Vs. Capcom over at
SFT China and created a SVC Pocket page.
The 2nd update for today comes from AtPictures.com. This is a set of art from
Super Street Fighter 2 though it is missing 3 characters. These are all very cool portraits and
I've created a new gallery to house these images. Here are the samples for the day!
9th March, 2003 - MvC Art
I enjoy the first and last Marvel VS game the most. Never much into MSF or MVC. However, I went through the latter and found some new art! I also got a snapshot of Roll's super/char select shot. Tossed that and the new gallery into the MvC page. The new gallery can be found here.
5th March, 2003 - MSH Art
These pages are based solely on Street Fighter art, however I was playing through Marvel Super Heroes and decided to capture the win screen poses. These are a little bigger (384x224), but there are some cool snaps and so I've included them. A temporary page can be found here. There's 10 in all (can you get the 3 hidden chars to work on the JPN version?), here's Spidey, my favorite of the bunch.
23rd February, 2003 - SFA2 Art
Grabbed some new snaps from SFZ2. I had these images before, but they were tiny and very low quality. I've made 18 gifs from the character selection screen. See them all here! A sample for you:
20th February, 2003 - New Art!
The GBA version of SFZ3 has been released and there are 3 additional hidden characters not found in any other version of the game. Eagle, Maki and Yun are all hidden characters and these 3 round out the cast at an incredible 36! I took snaps of the win poses and the versus portraits.
