Capcom has been creating fighting games for 30 years. 30 years of experience has influenced the art of game creation, and vice versa, art has influenced the structure of the game. Capcom has game creation history and techniques that can only be learned from documents and mentors within the company. This history is important for making a fighting game more visual and understandable. It can be said that these techniques are the reason why Capcom fighting games have maintained such a high quality throughout the years. In this session, Toshiyuki will introduce Capcom's techniques of art creation in its development of fighting games and discuss how the art has played a role in the overall game structure.
