Special Exhibition "Capcom vs. Osamu Tezuka Characters: TezuCap Fighting Universe 2"


Dates Saturday, 20 July 2024 - Sunday, 24 November 2024



1. Outline of Exhibition

The exhibition "TezuCap Fighting Universe: Capcom vs. Osamu Tezuka Characters" held at the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum in 2023 will now be held at the Tokiwaso Manga Museum as "TezuCap Fighting Universe 2" with reconfigured content and the addition of new illustrations.

In 1987, Capcom released Street Fighter as the video-game industry's first one-on-one fighting game. Its sequel, Street Fighter II, truly took the world by storm and laid the foundation for future one-on-one fighting games.

Its momentum swept the entire world, extending beyond video games to animation, character merchandise, and nowadays even "e-sports," referred to as a new form of sports.

The latest Street Fighter 6 released in 2023 carries on the series with legitimate evolution and innovation. Its advanced graphics and dynamic battle scenes with realistic physicality demonstrate new possibilities for one-on-one fighting games, along with the continued evolution of the series.

This exhibition will feature a giant timeline introducing the history of Capcom's one-on-one fighting games from the original Street Fighter to the latest release, Street Fighter 6, as well as key frames and materials from numerous fighting games including Night Warriors and Rival Schools.

It will also feature the addition of new illustrations of Osamu Tezuka's characters by Capcom artists and of Capcom characters by Tezuka Productions artists, which caused a stir at the original "Capcom vs. Osamu Tezuka Characters" exhibition, drawn specially for the Tokiwaso Manga Museum.
