Announced this weekend during the 2016 Dead or Alive Festival in Japan, The King of Fighters’ Mai Shiranui will be joining the roster of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round for the PlayStation 4 in September. Nippon ichi!
The iconic outfit of fighting game character Mai Shiranui has become the standard, de rigueur threads. It's not the standard for gamers, but for models. In Asia—especially China and Taiwan—models keep popping in non-gaming related events dressed as the SNK fighting game character.
Want to make a name for yourself in Asia? A plunging neckline might do the trick. If that doesn't work, try a cosplay of King of Fighters character Mai Shiranui. And if that doesn't work, do both.
Fancy costumes! Naked people! Doing it! That's the pitch, and in Japan, adult video makers try to appeal to otaku (geeks) with flicks featuring porn stars dressed up as video game characters. Sounds like sexy time, right? Eh...
Last year started out well enough. It looked like it was going to be a big one for Yang Qi Han (aka Isabella Yang). She was all over the place, even appearing at the Cannes Film Festival. Then things got bad, real bad.
It's the battle of the ladies cosplaying as iconic fighting game character Mai Shiranui. Earlier this year, Taiwanese model Yoyo appeared dressed as the jiggly ninja to promote her new picture book. This time?
Mai Shiranui from The King of Fighters isn't real. But a few days ago in Taiwan, you could've swore she was.

Yuuri Morishita got her start as a booth companion back in 2003, appearing at events like the Tokyo Game Show. But by 2007, she was appearing as an on-stage guest to promote games. And now, she's releasing an x-ray video. Not x-rated, x-ray.
After sitting out fighting game The King of Fighters XII, jiggly ninja Mai Shiranui is returning for KOFXIII. And she's bringing butt floss with her.
Jiggly fighter Mai Shiranui was not in The King of Fighters XII. She is in upcoming arcade game The King of Fighters XIII.
Mai Shiranui, from The King of Fighters series, wears a skimpy costume. She's a video game character. She can pull it off. But how does a real lady wear Mai's outfit?

We have dutifully inquired about the whereabouts of one Mai Shiranui in SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters XII and halted an analogy to ripening fruit.
Another day, another Mai Shiranui figure. Make that, another two — this one has a limited edition color variation.
