Here’s some cool little phone charm straps that are available in Japan in late July. The phone charms have various characters from the Streetfighter universe in a praying at your feet position. The characters are Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Dhalsim, Guile, E. Honda, Blanka, and Zangief. You can see below what they look like and each one will retail for ¥300.
Yung Lee, who happens to be a video editor and special effects guru, asked random cosplayers to take part in an awesome project he’s been working on to produce the video below. All major games, animes and others are represented ranging from Streetfighter, Final Fantasy, One Piece, Naruto and heaps more!
I wished to turn regular cosplayers into their own action stars by shooting, directing, and editing this action packed video. Final Fantasy characters, Deadpool, One Piece, Naruto characters, Street Fighter, and Batman characters appear in this video montage.
Most of the people in the video are strangers I approached and asked to shoot a video rather than standing still to pose for pictures. It was a really fun experience and I aim to make this a yearly tradition in the hopes of making each one better than the last.
I earlier mentioned the collaboration between Hello Kitty and J-Pop powerhouse, AKB48, today I can report of yet another Kitty hookup. Ready for this one? Hello Kitty meets Street Fighter! Hello Kitty’s owner, Sanrio, and Capcom have revealed at Comic-Con that they’ve just signed a partnership that will result in Hello Kitty/Streetfighter hybrids. What this means exactly is you’ll be able to buy plushies of Hello Kitty wearing some of the most popular Streetfighter outfits.
Joshua Izzo, Director of Licensing, Capcom Entertainment, Inc., had this to add, “Capcom has long admired Sanrio and their ability to create memorable and cherished lifestyle brands so it is a distinct pleasure to partner with them for this new cross-over line of merchandise, the combination of Street Fighter and Hello Kitty will offer fans a whole new way to experience our characters.”
“We are always looking for new ways to surprise our fans and partnering with a strong brand-focused company such as Capcom is a natural fit for us,” said Jill Koch, Vice President of Brand Management and Marketing, Sanrio, Inc. “Hello Kitty and Street Fighter have a dedicated core following around the world and our collaboration brings the legacy of both brands together in a fun and unexpected way.”
No pics or dates of release as yet but can anyone else picture Hello Kitty wearing Chun Li’s or Cammy’s outfit? Yes please!
