Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka Art Exhibit Announced in Japan, Promo Illustration by Bengus


"Capcom Vs. Osamu Tezuka" is not a fighting game (unfortunately), but it is an upcoming Art Exhibit set to take place in Japan on October 23rd, 2020. The event will be held in Takarazuka City, Hyogo and will feature works from a variety of artists to celebrate characters from both worlds. Osamu Tezuka is a Japanese manga artist who created Astro Boy, Metropolis, Apollo's Song, Kimba the White Lion, and many others... earning him titles such as the "Father of Manga" and "Godfather of Manga." FUN FACT: Mega Man himself was heavily inspired by Astro Boy, who even appeared as a cameo in the first game's ending. Below, enjoy the official promo illustration for the upcoming event, drawn by Bengus!

Savvy fighting game fans will immediately recognize the inspiration behind Bengus's promo art (above). The legendary artist recreated his own MVC1 poster theme using new Capcom characters joined by Osamu Tezuka icons. Of course, Chun-Li and Megaman are popular enough to appear in both posters.

Stay tuned on Fighters Generation for more fighting game news.
