Street Fighter: The Novel - Ore Yori Tsuyoi Yatsu wa Doko ni Iru - ("Where's the Guy Who's Stronger than Me?"), a novelization of the Street Fighter video game series, is set for publication in Japan on March 22. Its cover boasts an illustration (seen below) by Yuusuke Murata, the manga artist behind One-Punch Man and Eyeshield 21. It's written by Takashi Yano, who has produced novelizations of Naruto and Sengoku Basara before. The novel will be the first in a series of eight volumes and includes characters from across the Street Fighter series, including Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile and Dhalsim.
The novel's publication is timed to coincide with the recent release of Street Fighter V for the PlayStation 4 and PC. It will cost 1,300 yen (or about $11.40). Dhalsim fans in particular may also be interested in a recent video of the yogi "rapping" his attacks.
