The videogame company Capcom confirmed in a Friday press release that it is producing a new crossover venture with design and licensing company Sanrio.
Together, the two companies will market Sanrio's leading mascot character Hello Kitty dressed in iconic Street Fighter outfits. A slide featuring Hello Kitty donning a blue cheongsam (traditional Chinese dress) made popular by Street Fighter character Chun-Li was part of Capcom's presentation during its panel at Comic-Con International on Thursday.
Although no specific piece of merchandise were disclosed in the press release, the Street Fighter-themed merchandise will launch in fall of 2012.
