That's all for now, folks, but stay tuned for ROUND 2 of UDON's SDCC 2015 exclusives!

First of all, thank you for all of your wonderful entries! In such a short amount of time, we've received thousands of entries and it took quite awhile to narrow it down to the few hundred entries that will make it into the book.

UDON has selected our finalists and have submitted them to Capcom for final approvals. Once we get the green-light from Capcom, we'll make a formal announcement. That means emails HAVE NOT gone out yet, but will likely be going out in the NEXT FEW WEEKS, depending on how long Capcom takes to make their final decisions.

Thanks for your patience and for sharing your love of Capcom with us!!
