Starting November 10th, 2010 Triumvir will be unveiling another piece to its distinguished Street Fighter line — The Street Fighter ALPHA III Collection. This collection was a particularly important project to Triumvir because of what the game itself represents. SF Alpha III not only brought back vintage characters such as Adon & Charlie, but was also the first crosspollination between the world of Street Fighter and the rest of the CAPCOM universe.
Unlike previous collections, which carried a more serious tone consisting of rugged sketch-art of the characters, the ALPHA III Collection features fully completed artwork to give the collection an ominous, subtle, and sleek look. Also known as the “Greyscale Collection”, the series maintains anime roots through its utilization of CRMK’s artwork and grayscale colors. Unique to the Alpha III Collection, characters are no longer static portraits, but rather brought to life as they are captured in their in-game “victory” poses.
Heavily influenced by history, culture and the derivatives of contemporary fashion, many of the ideals and legacies
set forth by the Roman Empire, among others have served as direct inspiration for Triumvir. Like the brand
founders, Triumvir strives to demonstrate a life long dedication to the lasting impression left by the classics, with
dreams to one day join them
