posted on by Egan Loo
North American manga and anime distributor Viz Media confirmed during its Comic-Con International panel on Thursday that it will publish Street Fighter X Sanrio: World View, a book that combines the Street Fighter videogame franchise with the characters of Sanrio. Viz's distributor Simon & Schuster describes the book:
Life is not a video game. But don't you sometimes wish it was? The characters of Street Fighter, with the help of Hello Kitty and Friends, have lived through countless battles and learned many life lessons along the way. Now you can learn how to live like a warrior too!
The main Street Fighter X Sanrio: World View book and a tie-in sticker book will both arrive on November 13. Sanrio confirmed its Hello Kitty/Street Fighter collaboration with Capcom last July.
Viz also showed a teaser video for Toshin Style, a new line of anime-based goods.
Viz noted that the Android version of its digital manga app is now available. Viz confirmed its plans for the Android version in Anime Expo. The eighth Blue Exorcist volume will be available on July 30 — three months before the print version. In response to an audience question, a Viz Media representative acknowledged that the company is "looking into" publishing the Tiger & Bunny manga.
