Yes, really: Hello Kitty X Street Fighter collaboration

It was teased yesterday in a panel here at San Diego Comic-Con, but now Capcom has officially announced a collaboration with Sanrio, makers of Hello Kitty, Chococat and other ridiculously cute animal things.

Capcom says that co-branded Street Fighter themed merchandise will hit shelves sometime near fall 2012. That Chun-Li Hello Kitty we saw yesterday is exactly what you can expect from this collaboration as Capcom says they will sell a broad range of merchandise featuring Hello Kitty dressed in the costumes you know from the Street Fighter world.

A release from Capcom says that details on exactly what kind of merchandise we can expect will come at a later date.

I’d love to see Sagat Kitty with long legs and chest scars.
