Capcom had quite a surprising announcement at the San Diego Comic-Con 2011. No, it isn’t that the Mega Man Legends 3 cancelation was just a big joke. Brace yourself, as Capcom is going to team up with Sanrio for Hello Kitty x Street Fighter.
Don’t get confused, Hello Kitty x Street Fighter isn’t a game like Street Fighter x Tekken or Marvel vs. Capcom. It is going to be a line of products along the lines of the Street Fighter vs. Tokidoki collaboration that was announced at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. By this time next year, we’ll see all kinds of things we can buy that will have Hello Kitty dressed up as iconic Street Fighter characters on them. Capcom and Sanrio will announce where these items will be sold closer to their Fall 2012 release window.
So there you go Capcom fans. This is what the company thinks you want – a Hello Kitty x Street Fighter cross-over and slightly enhanced version of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and not Ace Attorney Investigations 2, Mega Man Universe or Mega Man Legends 3 though. Oh, who am I kidding. I’d totally buy a stuffed Hello Kitty dressed up as Chun-Li. It’d be even cuter though, if she was made up to look like Blanka.
