Kickstarter launched for "Like a Hurricane: An Unofficial Oral History of Street Fighter II" book

Another one for the coffee table

Like a Hurricane tells the story of the creation of one of the most important and beloved videogames of all time – Street Fighter II – and its subsequent impact on the industry, its creators, and the game-playing public that so warmly embraced it.

The culmination of several years of research by games writer Matt Leone, Like a Hurricane gathers together over 60 voices, spread across continents, disciplines and companies, speaking candidly on the vision, fearlessness, and bold ambition that made Street Fighter II a household name.

The gang behind Like a Hurricane are looking for just shy of $63k to bring the book to life. If you'd like to contribute to the campaign, you can do so here.

It's by Polygon so I'm out. Also, I don't even see any images of the game in any of the example pages, which gives the impression it's a bit pretentious and doesn't really get a huge part of what makes Street Fighter so appealing. I'd rather have an official art book or visual compendium or something like that.
