After being announced last year at the San Diego Comic Con, the crossover event nobody saw coming, Street Fighter x G.I. Joe, is ready to launch in the comic book world. Capcom recently revealed the first images from the mashup on their community blog.
Published by IDW, the six-issue event will chronicle a secret tournament of the world’s best fighters that is held when Destro and M. Bison join forces. Of course, if you are familiar with either of those two villains, you should know that they have a lot more planned than just a tournament. The first issue will launch on February 24, 2016, and a full trade-version is planned once the series has been completed (later this year).
I know that I can’t be the only one who is hoping that this collaboration is a sign of things to come in the video game world. The matchups would be perfect: Ryu versus Storm Shadow, Chun Li fighting Baroness... we could go on all day. Please, Capcom, make this happen!
