Ever needed to know why Zangief wears panties in battle or why Blanka smells bad? Apparently, there’s a book that might have answers to these questions. Capcom and UDON have partnered to create an illustrated tell all, a literal encyclopedia featuring “detailed profiles” for every Street Fighter character. It’s called “Street Fighter: World Warrior Encyclopedia,” and it’s hitting stores in late 2010.
We’re not sure why Capcom or UDON decided to publish and illustrate a book based on characters not named Ken. Seems silly, right? We’re in the process of not asking about this, and will not tell you when someone doesn’t answer. Stay tuned (and go pre-order this thing at Amazon if you’re interested.)
