Street Fighter IV: Anime Intro

July 8th, 2008

Street Fighter IV

Head on over to the Japanese site for “Street Fighter IV”  to see a great animated intro for the game. There are quite a few clips on there, some of which feature elements of gameplay. Rumor has it that the game will be playable at the Capcom booth at the San Diego Comic-Con later this summer. I don’t know if this animated piece is in the game in any form, but it’s awesome just the same.

“Gon” getting an animated TV series

June 20th, 2008

Gon Again

The Anime News Network is reporting that “Gon” will soon have his own television series. Korean company Daewon Media has secured the rights to Gon from Japanese company Kodansha

“Gon” is a comic book series featuring a small dinosaur type character with super speed and super strength. The stories have no dialog and no human characters. They all take place in nature, and place Gon with realistic animals in natural surroundings and situations.

Look for “Gon” in early 2010.
