Two-button Street Fighter does not sound fun (from what I remember, Mortal Kombat for Game Boy was straight-up basura), but these old sprites overlaid into real-world environments would be a dream to see on handhelds.
Miyazaki x Street Fighter: Spirit Fighter by Drew Wise
This, along with a Snorlax x Totoro design, is available as a shirt for on The Yeetee today. The tees aren’t actually animated, but they are super cheap at $11 each.
Vega’s V-day card to Sagat
I think the Champion Edition cabinet is out of service — I can’t see any reason why you’d play the original version otherwise.
Mega Man 1-6 coming to 3DS Virtual Console
The biggest Mega Man news today is Street Fighter X Mega Man, out free today on PC, but there’s cool stuff for 3DS too! Capcom’s going to release Mega Man 1-6 on 3DS Virtual Console starting December 27.
Mega Man 2 will be out on Feb. 7, and the rest will be distributed throughout 2013. I will buy all of them, because that’s the kind of sucker I am.
Street Fighter X Mega Man!
Huh? Okay! This surprise Capcom crossover releases as a free PC download on December 17. Instead of fighting eight Robot Masters, Mega Man takes on eight Street Fighters this time, gaining their powers with each victory.
This is all very weird! Maybe it’s awesome too? We can all agree, though, that it’s a thing with Mega Man. And it looks a lot better than a lot of the other Mega Man stuff Capcom has released lately.
Street Fighter dudes and meatbuns rolled into a shirt
The LA Game Space continues to trot out some ridiculous rewards for its Kickstarter — along with the 30 games you can get by chipping in just $15, you can get this shirt, a tee from Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley, or other designs when you throw in some extra cash.
This shirt comes from stylish apparel shop Meatbun and the good-hearted Nina Matsumoto (yes, of Game Center CX translations fame). LA Game Space is just a few thousand bucks away from hitting its pledge goal, so do your part to fund the project and get this tee!
“I am Street Fighter” by Randis Albion (click for a larger image). I missed this a couple months ago when Albion originally posted it online, but the piece was created for Capcom’s Street Fighter 25th Anniversary art book.

Guile gets some gaming in while he’s stuck in a tree, illustrated by Lee Chang-Woo (click for larger image).
Hopefully he remembers he’s holding a lit cigarette there, and not his stylus — a common mistake apparently.

Asian kids transformed into Street Fighters.
When I was a young Asian scrap like these two, before receiving formal training in the Shotokan fighting style, I used to pull special moves like this all the time.
That’s how I got in trouble in third grade once, when everyone was running to line up in single file after recess, and I dashed toward the group and jumped in with a flying kick, like I was Bruce fucking Lee in Enter the Dragon.
I accidentally kicked a kid, but it was nothing serious. It’s not like he got knocked out, body all hanging in the air as he dropped in slow motion, elephants trumpeting in the background as an announcer was like, “You Win.”
It’s not like dude lost a quarter or nothing over it. I didn’t follow it up by smashing some guy’s car with mad dragon punches, breaking his sedan down to a molecular level. It wasn’t anything serious, nahmean?
Anyway, a teacher saw it all, pulled me aside by the arm, and threatened to call my mom to tell her about it. At the end of the day, she forgot about the ordeal, but I was stressing all afternoon over it.

“Outsourced” by Sachin Teng (click for a larger image). Must be one of those bootleg/hacked Street Fighter II variants that were so popular in the early ’90s.

During last week’s 3DS conference, Eric commented to me about how great the shirt Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono wore in his interview was, a sentiment with which I had no trouble agreeing. (We also agreed that Ono seemed huggable — doesn’t he?) Little did I know, that Street Fighter vs. Tokidoki shirt was released during last year’s New York Comic-Con, and has been sitting quietly on Capcom’s online store since then.
Today, Capcom announced that this shirt is its Deal of the Week, discounted 25 percent to $29.99. I’m guessing other people saw Ono sporting the adorable garment, and flooded Capcom with inquiries about how to get their own. If you’re interested in picking one up, the sale is active until Friday!
