Super Street Fighter II Gaiden: DARK SHIFT

In addition to old Japanese video games, I also enjoy collecting art books, strategy guides, comics and other stuff related to old games. Over the past year or so in particular I’ve picked up a bunch of comic collections and anthologies based on STREET FIGHTER and other fighting games. A lot of these books have some really cool comics by all kinds of awesome artists, and as far as I’m aware not a lot of it is available anywhere, digitally or in print – let alone in English.

So in a token preservation effort – and an excuse to practice my Japanese, I guess – I present to you my translation of DARK SHIFT by Hirofumi Ichikawa; a fun little story seemingly inspired by the Street Fighter G.I. Joe action figures, of all things.

The comic was originally featured in “Street Fighter II Comic Anthology Vol. 3”, published by Gamest Comics/Shinseisha in 1995.
