Street Fighter X Tekken is still a ways off, it's scheduled for a March 6th release, but that's not stopping Capcom from trying to get people hyped. Their latest reveal is pretty crazy, showing off new costumes for the game, most of which are other characters. Chun-Li as Panda, Ryu as Ogre and Kuma as R. Mika are just the icing on the iceberg. Check out all the pics below!

We're glad to see Capcom going all out mixing their characters with Tekken's, even if a lot of the combinations are insanely random. Here's a quick breakdown of the ones we can make out in these pics:

  • Rufus as Angel
  • Zangief as Kuma
  • Kuma as R. Mika
  • Heihachi as Sodom
  • Yoshimitsu as M. Bison
  • Hugo as Ganryu
  • Steve Fox as Charlie
  • Sagat as Sergei (?)
  • Dhalsim as Jinpachi
  • Chun-Li as Panda
  • Julia as Chun-Li
  • Abel as Armor King
  • King as Alex
  • Guile as Jack (?)
  • Nina as Rolento
  • Ryu as Ogre
  • Ken as Lars
  • Hworang as DeeJay
  • Poison as (?)
  • Cammy as King
  • Rufus as Ryu

While it's cute if you think of it as cosplay, it's funnier if you think of these costumes as the skin of defeated warriors, you know, in the way that Leatherface is funny. Or maybe not. A lot of these costumes address  some of the matchups we wanted to see, albeit in a totally unexpected way. Since some of the costumes are actually characters already in the game, we wonder if we'll be seeing a playable R. Mika or Sodom in the game or if they're just substitutes for playable versions. Spot any costumes we missed in the pics? Let us know in the comments!

    The shot on the front page with Kuma and Rolento looks like Rolento as Raven.

    Ryu as Ogre is pretty sweet.

    we used to get this kind of stuff as unlockables. *sigh* maybe I'll buy some. or all. They actually look better than SF4 costumes

    I like the fact that Capcom did that. It seems wacky, and it may provide a lot of laughs. But King as Alex, gold!(IMO) Can't wait for this.

    Woah, Yoshimitsu as Bison is BADASS!

    Shouldn't "Rufus as Ryu" be Bob as Ryu. Anyway I love these costumes way more than the SF4 ones ill probably end up buying them this time around.

    Nice, these seem like an appropriate addition for a versus game. Hopefully they're all in the main game, I liked the SSFIV costumes but they were really a little expensive for what they were.
