At a recent Street Fighter X Tekken tourney in Taiwan, a slew of cosplayers showed up, bringing the iconic fighters to life. This isn't a first for Capcom—and Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono once again got in on the act and dressed up as Chun-Li! He's such a great Chun-Li.
Lots of game companies embrace fandom. Few game makers embrace fandom—and talented players—like this. Kayo Satoh was also on hand for the event. Kayo is a top-ranked Crimson Viper player—and a solid Viper cosplayer to boot. She's also a famous model and mainstream celebrity in Japan, making her, perhaps, the country's most famous gaming talent?
Have a look at the other cosplayers.
Note: This was part of the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary tournament in Taiwan. It included Street Fighter X Tekken, Super Street Fighter 4 AE 2012, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo and Street Fighter 3 Third Strike (more on website EventHubs).
