Oh goodness. It looks as if Sanrio, purveyor of Hello Kitty merchandise, has gotten a little Street Fighter chocolate in their proverbial peanut butter. They have gone and launched a line of clothing — and one tote bag — with Street Fighter x Sanrio branding that is beyond adorable. Beyorable, if you will. If only they’d gone and made a fighting game out of this rather than the crossover with Tekken.
Maybe beating up on Hello Kitty characters was a bit too far for some of the suits further up the ladder. But at least we can enjoy these glorious reminders of what might have been.
My Melody x Cammy looks rough and tumble. And cute.
Badtz-Ryu is ready to take on all challengers, including dryer lint.
Purin x Zangief is afraid of nothing. Like wrinkles.
These and many more are available over at Sanrio’s shop. But seriously, someone needs to set up a petition for Capcom to make this a game like yesterday. It’d be a magical, cutesy, bloody, baffling brawl for the ages.
