Publishing firm Udon has picked up the Street Fighter Gaiden manga comics for release in North America, starting with Volume 1 on November 24.
Street Fighter Gaiden is a short series featuring the fighters from Street Fighter II. Classic stuff here. Here's Udon's summary (via Siliconera):
"Written and drawn by Mami Itou (Darkstalkers/Red Earth, ROBOT, Pilgrim Jäger), Street Fighter Gaiden spotlights the World Warriors' adventures outside the tournament scene. The series is made up of short stories each devoted to a classic Street Fighter character.
"Fan-favorites like Ryu, Ken, Chun-li, and Guile each get their due, as do many other skilled fighters. Cammy teams up with Delta Red against the narcisitic Vega, T. Hawk has a desert showdown with Balrog, Fei-Long teaches everyone what it truly means to be a martial artist, and Ryu & Ken face off together against their deadliest rival - Akuma!"
Volume 2 will follow in January 2011. There's no word on a UK release, but we're sure the more eager of you will be importing those bad boys.
