"Welcome Back EVO!" Capcom SNK Collaboration Artwork by Shinkiro and Eisuke Ogura


During EVO 2022 today, SNK and Capcom shared a "Welcome back EVO!" collaboration illustration featuring character artwork drawn by two legendary fighting game illustrators, Shinkiro and Eisuke Ogura. Each artist illustrated two SNK characters and two Capcom characters, combining them into a single image (both of which you'll find below in full quality)! SNK will also be holding a raffle at their EVO '22 booth for physical signed prints of the artwork. Directly below are some great photos of the two iconic artists together at EVO '22 with their respective illustrations!






To state the obvious, this EVO '22 collaboration artwork doesn't necessarily hint at a new crossover title between the companies, unfortunately. However, it's definitely cool to see SNK and Capcom artists collaborate on something to celebrate fighting games and the return of EVO as a live event. Of course, we can still patiently keep our fingers crossed for Capcom Vs. SNK 3 someday. [UPDATE] In August 2022, SNK producer Yasuyuki Oda told VGC "both parties" are interested in a new crossover.

In related EVO news from Friday, SNK announced a rollback netcode update for Samurai Shodown (2019) and unveiled brand new concept artwork for KOF XV's Team Awakened Orochi planned for release on Monday, August 8th. Keep it here on Fighters Generation for more EVO '22 news this weekend!
