latest CFN Portal blog reveals a plethora of new artwork and details for
the one of Capcom's most mysterious and unfortunate canceled titles, Capcom
Fighting All Stars! For the first time ever, Capcom revealed
artwork for Demitri and Akuma who were also planned for the game. Also
check out some amazing Shinkiro posters and other gorgeous
artwork that makes us wish this game wasn't canceled.
Let's start with these rare Capcom Fighting All Stars posters. We're not
sure who the artist of this first poster is, but the next two are
definitely drawn by
The story of Capcom
Fighting All Stars was set to take place in Metro City. The
official storyline is as follows:
The shadow of fear
was approaching Metro City. A man only known as DEATH, was running around
Metro City with a bomb. The bomb was codenamed Laughter Sun. Mayor Mike
Haggar contacted well known fighters in order to locate and defeat
DEATH and then defuse the bomb. Codes were needed to disarm the bomb, and
that is where the Code Holders subtitle of the game comes into play. D.D.
and his teammates, Rook and Ingrid, were the Code Holders. Their codes are
Ogre, Fallen Angel, and Isis.
We finally have this badass
artwork to back up the game's official storyline. It appears
"Death" made a (nostalgia-inducing) phone call to Mayor Haggar with a bomb threat.
For the first time ever...
take a look at the mysterious boss of Capcom
Fighting All Stars, "Death". Also check out artwork for Akuma and
Demitri below, who were just
confirmed to have been planned for the game.
Directly above are new
"character faces" illustrations which have never been seen
anywhere until now. And below are the emblems for the 4 newcomers: D.D., Rook, Ingrid and Death.
Nakayama also posted CFAS character movelists on Twitter. Alas,
it's sad to glance at these movelists and know we'll probably never get
play these versions of the characters. It's also mind-blowing to realize
how far this game was into development... only to be canceled.
Next up, some unreleased
official screenshots of Capcom Fighting All Stars. Note that the
game wasn't complete when these screenshots were taken, so Capcom could've
cleaned up the graphics before release.
