ROFL wound up getting all three covers of the Street Fighter Summer Sports Special. I was defeated by Menat’s booty. I WAS DONE SON!
I wonder why for the fan art contest for the issue why people were not allowed to submit images of Ingrid. I get that she’s not the most popular SF character in English speaking territories, but it’s just artwork. The last SF online fan poll had SF EX characters, characters from Street Fighter 2010, and even characters from the video game based on the Hollywood movie like Sedawa, and Ingrid wasn’t included in that either.
Makes me wonder if she is no longer a Street Fighter character. Or Capcom just wants you to believe that she’s not a Street Fighter character so they can sell her SFV outfit as someone who is from another game. Still seems strange and random.
Since she’s long “RUMORED” to appear in Tekken x Street Fighter I wonder if this might be one of those strange inter-company character embargoes Japan likes to do. Like you know, no classic Mega Man in Marvel vs. Capcom games because he’s in Smash, Dante didn’t appear in PlayStation All-Stars because he was in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 / UMvC 3 so they used Donte instead (this was actually confirmed by Reuben Langdon) and so on, Japan does that kind of thing with crossovers all the time. Capcom also admitted to not including Nemesis and Dante in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom because they were saving them for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. I still don’t see how any of this would have anything to with a fan poll or a fan art contest though.
Ah well. Would be nice if I could get a straight answer but I doubt that will happen.
Nice book though! The Poison pics were my favorite. WHAT? She looks female enough to me… ^_^;
