Today SNK announced that it will host a birthday celebration event in Tokyo for the popular Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters heroine Mai Shiranui.
The event will start on December 26 and will end on January 6 at “THE AKIHABARA CONTAiNER” venue in Tokyo. Mai’s birthday is on January 1.
Funnily, the press release mentions explicitly and prominently that the event is “for all ages.” Whether this is a way to poke fun at the exclusion of Mai Shiranui from the Smash Bros. Ultimate crossover DLC due to the fact that the game is rated CERO A (which mans all ages in Japan) or not, your guess is as good as mine.
The event will include a pop-up store which will offer several products mostly focused on Mai herself (with a few exception).
Anyone who spends over 6,000 yen will receive a bag of “delicious Shiranui Rice.” Spending over 10,000 yen on January 1 will net you an additional bonus in the form of a dedicated tote bag.
Among the products for sale you’ll find T-shirts, a fan, a B2 poster, Japanese New Year decorations (Kagami Mochi and Kadomatsu), tin pins, a muffler, acrylic stands, stickers, keychains, canvas art, and two sets of soba noodles themed after Yori Yagami.
You can take a look at some of the products mentioned below.
