Possible origins of the hole in Evil Ryu's chest

Possible origins of the hole in Evil Ryu's chest Ever wonder how Evil Ryu got that big hole in his chest? Well, did a write up, with images, explaining how it may be based off of a manga by Masahiko Nakahira, who apparently created Evil Ryu and Karin. Here's a clip from the page.

Well it seems Capcom is honoring the work of famous mangaka Masahiko Nakahira who made the Street Fighter Alpha mangas as well as the famous Ryu Final in which Ryu gets almost killed in his final battle against Akuma, where the latter punctured Ryu’s chest.

This is not the first time where Capcom borrows ideas from Nakahira-san’s mangas. In fact Evil Ryu was a creation of Mashiko Nakahira (in the Street Fighter Alpha manga) as well as Karin (who was a character specifically created for the Sakura Ganbaru manga) and the background for many other characters.

If you're interested in picking up the comic discussed here, Udon Entertainment has translated his books and they're available for purchase on Amazon. You can find links to these by hopping the link above.

Capcom has plans for Street Fighter's 25th anniversary

Capcom has plans for Street Fighter's 25th anniversary A blurb on the PaulGaleNetwork talks briefly about Capcom's plans for Street Fighter's 25th anniversary, which is coming up in 2012, it reads:

Finally, I had to mention that Street Fighter turns 25 in 2012, and ask if we could expect Street Fighter 5 or was Street Fighter X Tekken going to be all? After all, for the series’ 15th birthday we got the Anniversary Collection and then we got Street Fighter IV for the 20th anniversary. Although I didn’t get anything solid, at least I was told that “Street Fighter is as important as Mega Man and they’re both turning 25″…so my guess is that something is up!

Although the site mentions Street Fighter 5, that does seem very unlikely at this point, as Ono's team is currently hard at work with Street Fighter X Tekken and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition.

Also, with the DLC release of SSF4 Arcade Edition content being all but confirmed at this point, the Street Fighter development team probably has their hands very full at the moment.

Still, it's Street Fighter's 25th anniversary, and it sounds like Capcom will do something to commemorate the event.
