Street Fighter 6’s Chun-Li & Kimberly Will Star in Collaboration with Fashion Brand Onitsuka Tiger

Today Capcom announced a new collaboration between its upcoming fighting game Street Fighter 6 and the Japanese fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger.

Today Capcom announced a new collaboration between its upcoming fighting game Street Fighter 6 and the Japanese fashion brand Onitsuka Tiger.

According to the press release, the collaboration originates from Onitsuka Tiger’s focus on the potential of eSports to create a society without borders where everyone is accepted regardless of age, gender, nationality, or disabilities.

As Japanese brands, Capcom and Onitsuka Tiger aim to create culture by honoring tradition while adding new things to it. This will actually be the second collaboration of this kind after the one focusing on Street Fighter V in 2019.

For this project, illustrations of Chun-Li and the brand-new character Kimberly have been created basically creating a tag team of old and new that transcends generations.

Chun-Li wears Onitsuka Tiger’s iconic Mexico 66 sneakers, while Kimberly wears the Delecity model.

Collaboration T-shirts with said designs will be sold at Capcom’s Japanese online store eCapcom and the physical Capcom Stores in Tokyo and Osaka. Details will come in the near future.

Onitsuka Tiger will also sell original collaboration items featuring the cute illustrations featuring Chun-Li and Kimberly by Thai cartoonist Wisut Ponnimit. They will be available in the first half of 2023.

You can see all the artwork revealed below.

Street Fighter 6 will release in 2023 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It was teased in February and fully revealed in June.

A few weeks ago, we got to see the reveal of Guile at Summer Game Fest, followed by the reveal of Kimberly and Juri last night.

We also got a few music-related reveals with the official music video for the main theme, titled Not on the Sidelines, followed by the themes for Chun-Li and new-ish character Lukethe theme for Ryuthe music created for Jamie, and Guile’s theme.
