SDCC: Street Fighter spanks Tekken

 

SDCC may be over, but there is still news, or just crazy videos. Like this one, in which Yoshinori Ono and Katsuhiro Harada, producers for Street Fighter and Tekken respectively,  play some Street Fighter x Tekken during a panel to determine which is the better title. The loser is punished for his failure (by a whole group of Poison cosplayers no less). Then everyone goes outside to play games in sumo suits.

I am not sure how I feel about this video. On the one hand the challenges that fans got to participate in were probably a lot of fun (they looked pretty entertaining, but everything is funnier with sumo suits). On the other hand I felt kind of dirty after watching the first part of the proceedings. If Harada getting whipped looks familiar, that is because Dale was kind enough to share a different clip of it last week. Either way it was quite the spectacle, which was the point so I guess the panel was a success.
