An intriguing curve ball out of San Diego ComicCon today, as both IDW Publishing and Capcom themselves revealed that debuting in 2016 will be a six issue limited series pitting the characters from the Street Fighter universe against the characters from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero world.
As of now this confrontation is limited to the comic book pages, but when Capcom and Hasbro are working together, one must wonder how far this little partnership just might go.
Wouldn’t it be great if Hasbro started putting out 3 3/4″ scale figures of Street Fighter characters under the Joe name, like they did back in 1993. Maybe than the brand could gain a little traction.
I’d be for that. I missed out the last time. Dang it.
