Kinu Nishimura is one of the most accomplished artists to have ever worked in video games. She started out at Capcom in 1991, and in the two decades to follow worked on everything from Street Fighter II to Darkstalkers.

It’s been over 25 years since then, and while she’s no longer a full-time employee, she’s helped out on titles as recent as Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Nishimura’s first job at Capcom was on the brawler King of Dragons, and afterwards she contributed either promotional art or character design work for classics like Rival Schools, Street Fighter III and Capcom vs. SNK.
