Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka Art Exhibit Grand Opening, New Illustrations from Shinkiro, Kinu, Bengus


The "Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka" characters exhibition event is now officially open in Takarazuka City, Hyogo, Japan! New crossover character illustrations from both Capcom and Osamu Tezuka artists have been revealed, with exclusive merch available for attendees. Capcom's Kinu Nishimura herself was present at the event on day one, posting a photo on Twitter of the amazing fan service "welcome wall" (below) featuring (wall-sized) freshly-inked lines from Capcom legends such as: Shinkiro, Bengus, Keisuke Mizuno, and Tezuka's Tsunogai. The medium for the welcome wall appears to be a sharpie. Scroll down to see early versions of some of the brand new character artwork being revealed at the event! [UPDATE] The official Capcom Vs. Tezuka artbook is planned for release in April 2021.

"At the 81st exhibition at the Tezuka Osamu Memorial Hall in Takarazuka City, Hyogo, an exhibition will be held to unravel the history of Capcom, which developed Street Fighter, Mega Man, Resident Evil, and Monster Hunter. This new collaboration in 2020 introduces Tezuka Osamu characters drawn by Capcom artists, and Capcom characters drawn by creators of Tezuka Productions. More details will be announced at a later date."

The event is open from October 23rd, 2020 to February 23rd, 2021.

The artwork above will be replaced with higher quality versions when available! Below is the first piece of officially released high-res collaboration artwork. BEHOLD! Astro Boy drawn by Capcom (Keisuke Mizuno of Mega Man fame)... and Mega Man drawn by Osamu Tezuka (Tsunogai), naturally!  More coming soon. . . 

Here's some official merch from the event.

Will this crossover lead to an epic tag-team fighting game by Capcom? One can hope. If it happens, you know we'll be covering it! Stay tuned on The Fighters Generation for more fighting game news and content.
