Where are the rest of the SF1 cast?


#1

I really liked the issue #1 cover with all of the SF characters. It has the SF1 characters that have recently been remade in new games (Gen, Adon, Birdie, Eagle) but where are the rest? I was kinda hoping to see Retsu and Geki at least. Ah well, pretty groovy comic none the less.


#2

Retsu, Geki, Lee, and Joe aren’t really popular, especially since they haven’t received brand new sprites like the other lucky SF1 characters. I doubt we’ll be seeing them in the comic…but maybe UDON’ll make reference to some of them as a quick easter egg for SF fans. (like, Ken beating up Vega, and saying “You know, Ryu told me about some guy in Japan he fought with claws…but he was a ninja.”)


#3

I’m not talking about seeing them in the comic, I would just have kinda liked to see them in that cover, since it had all the other SF characters in it (and Maki, who was never actually in a SF game). Anyway it’s no biggi.


#4

I was thinking and then realized…the cover had every PLAYABLE Street Fighter character. If they became playable somehow…


#5

Was Gill ever playable?


#6

Yes, he was hidden in the Dreamcast versions. In Double Impact it was by moving off the screen. In 3rd Strike, you had to beat the game with everyone first.


#7

Its kinda like what Bowling Pin said.

Udoneko actually explained in another thread why they didnt show them, but I dotn remember what he said exactly.

Although I imagine its because most average SF fans/players probaly would recognize all the chars on that SF#1 cover, but they wouldnt recognize those SF1 chars if they were on it, or if they were in the comic.

Those chars are too unrecognizable to most SF fans/players, or rather a majority of people who read/buy the comic, which is probaly why they may never show up.


#8

Will the SFEX characters like Sharon, Area, Skullomania, etc…show up in the comic series?


#9

No, they’re not really property of Capcom. Arika created them.
