Capcom Store deals at SDCC 2014

In addition to playable demos, panels and signings, our SDCC booth (215) will also once again house the Capcom Store, which is debuting some new items plus a few favorites from last year...

First up is the perfect companion piece to last year's MM25th light-up statue - his iconic helmet! Made out of Chrome Resin, it's the same size as the MM25th statue, similar base and features the same USB-powered light LED features.

Plus, we updated the technology to feature induction power so it lights up easier and brighter by just placing the helmet on the post. Standing at about 10" tall and 5" wide, this collectible will be sure to stand our prominently, especially when you turn on the lights. There's a very limited number of the red/white alternate helmet. This item will be available at other major shows through the rest of this year, but if you're at SDCC be sure to get this early in the show so as not to be disappointed by sell-outs later.  ($80)

PLUS: In conjunction with our good friends at Archie (who publish the incredible Mega Man comic book series) we are placing two "Golden Tickets" inside the special Mega Man #37 SDCC cover variant that will be sold at both the Archie Booth and at the Capcom Store. If you're lucky enough to get the Golden Ticket, you win one of these Mega Man Replica Helmets!

SDCC will also be your chance to pick up the Mega Man denim jacket by Volante Designs. Those who pre-ordered should see theirs in the mail before the end of the month, but if you missed out and want to grab one before they're gone... this is it!  ($200)

After playing MH4U and posing with the Gore Magala, swing by the Capcom Store to nab these exclusive Rathian and Yian Kut-Ku plushies! Like the helmet this is a limited item so try to arrive early in the day... or hit us up at another show later on :P  ($20 each)

Plus monsters not your thing? Maybe consider a cutesy take on Chun Li, Ryu or Ken, who will debut at SDCC and - like everything else - are limited and likely to sell out!  ($20 each)

SF Assassin's Fist fans can pick up apparel based on the series  and  meet members of the cast either at our panel or daily signings . And if you haven't seen the series on Machinima / YouTube ... well uh go do that.

For those interested in the physical edition of Ultra Street Fighter IV, you can pre-order that or the PC digital version ( via Amazon ) right in our booth and get this poster as a timeless reminder of that time you bought a game on a convention floor.

Last year, our high-end Resident Evil Umbrella watch sold out quickly. This year, we're following it up with an exclusive Shadaloo Street Fighter watch, which, like the RE watch, is a quality fashion item is made of stainless steel, features a leather band, water resistant to 10M, comes in a plush collector's case and each one is individually numbered. This is also sure to be another sell-out, so be sure to come by the booth early.  ($250)

But let's say you can't make it to SDCC this year. To ease the pain we're offering a 15% discount on Capcom Store orders over $50 now through August 3,2014. Hit up the Capcom Store for our current lineup of items, and also keep your eyes peeled for the other major shows this year for another chance at these exclusive SDCC items.

See you at the show!

SDCC 2014 panels, signings and event schedule

As with E3, we'll have our HUGE Gore Magala tamed and ready to pose for pictures. Come by, play the game (and Ace Attorney Trilogy, Ultra SFIV and Dead Rising 3 PC) and then check out our signing table before hitting up a panel or two :3

For the first time ever, the Capcom Pro Tour will be present at the San Diego Comic Con. Convention attendees and those lucky enough to qualify will be battling for a part of the $3,000 and 256 Capcom Pro Tour points up for grabs.

Players who have a one day pass or multiple day passes will be able to try their luck in one of the two tournaments happening during SDCC on Thursday, Friday or Saturday at the Capcom Booth. Spots fill on a first come, first serve basis so get there early if you want to play! 

For those who weren’t able to get a pass or looking for a last chance qualifier, the CPT has you covered as well. On Sunday, players will report to the Omni Hotel and battle it out with others for one of the final four spots. Once all spots have been decided, the final 16 man tournament will begin at 5pm, right after SDCC ends. This way everyone will be able to enjoy SDCC and the CPT to the max!

Super Street Fighter II fan art tribute from Brazil

Ready for EVO 2014 this weekend? Whether you're training nonstop for the tournament or working hard to make sure your Friday is free, you should take a few minutes and take a look at this awesome collection of  Street Fighter II fan art, specifically created by Brazilian fans/artists !

This collaborative project was to gather 17 tribute art pieces from 17 different artists focusing on 17 individual characters... why the number 17, I don't know, but it totally works and the end result is a varied selection of characters rendered in vastly different styles. Definitely hit up their Tumblr page to check the full list out.

Here are some of my favorites below (as well as the hilarious He-Man  Masters of the Universe crossover with Ken  Masters above):

You'll also notice various references to Brazilian pop and internet culture throughout some of the pieces, so feel free to ask anything in the comments; I can talk all day about that stuff. ;)

From Masher to Master - understand Street Fighter with this helpful book

As we head into EVO weekend, odds are many of us are brushing up on our fighting skills and wondering, "hey what if I really sat down and tried to learn this stuff?"

Could this be the year you really hunker down and  learn about SF, and fighting games in general? Improve your game and try to understand why  certain moves and matchups work they way they do? SRK has posted a great (and free!) digital book by Patrick Miller that aims to make that process as easy as possible.

Head here for the book and to SRK for the author's thoughts on why he made the book  and  why it's so important to him. tl;dr version - fighting games are great, learn them, bring fresh players into the mix and make things even  more  exciting.
