The thing I absolutely love about living in Japan is that there is so much exclusive merchandise available for all the various video game IPs that I have come to love over my thirty-plus years of playing video games. From the various cafes that are themed after video games to the company-run stores like the CAPCOM Store, there is really something for everyone. Today, CAPCOM announced that they will be bringing a number of brand new exclusive items to their stores in Tokyo and Osaka as part of the Fighting! STREET FIGHTER! collection.
CAPCOM is going all out with a huge number of new products being announced for the stores. They will be bringing new pens, shirts, eco-bags, iPhone cases, clear files, socks, and flat pouches all as part of the new Fighting! Street Fighter! collection. Three types of T-shirts are going to be available, each with a different design printed on them: ‘Hadouken’, ‘Special Moves’ and ‘Character Select Scree’. The socks have Ryu, Dhalsim, Blanca and Vega printed on the back, so you can coordinate them with the T-shirts. The eco-bags and clear files have the character select screen or ‘Hadouken’.
If you’re a fan of anything CAPCOM, I have a feeling that you’re going to want to have some of these items in your possession. If that’s the case, I would recommend trying to hit up that friend of yours that happens to live in or around either of the two locations and seeing if they can pick some of them up for you. As with everything new that comes to any of the brand stores, the Fighting! STREET FIGHTER! collection is probably going to go pretty fast, so time is of the essence.
