Darkstalkers Tribute is a 296 page art book published by Udon Entertainment. The book, ISBN 978-1897376102, was released on October 6, 2009. The book is made up of fan submitted artwork collected through Udon in celebration of Darkstalkers 15th anniversary. In addition to fan submitted work, professional artists contributed to the book, including Udon artists.


In 2008 Udon published a Street Fighter Tribute. The interest generated by it allowed Udon to open a contest similar to the one held for Street Fighter, this time in commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the Darkstalkers series.[1] With 2072 submissions for the contest,[2] 179 winners were announced on 2009-03-15.[3]

Besides the fan art selected, the book includes illustrations created by professional artists, like Adam Hughes, J. Scott Campbell, Jo Chen, Yasuhiro Nightow, Mark Brooks, Daisuke Moriyama and Atsushi Suzumi among others.

A few hardcover copies of the book were available at some events and at Udon's store for a limited time.[4] The interest garnered by Darkstalkers Tribute may have lead to Udon continuing their Darkstalkers comic series with Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors. In 2011, a Mega Man Tribute artbook was released in a similar fashion.

A more easily available hardcover edition of Darkstalkers Tribute was released by Udon on 2015-11-10 with ISBN 978-1927925591.
