Virtual YouTubers (or VTubers) have been growing in popularity all over the world, but especially Japan, and now some of them are getting to cross over into the realm of fighting games.
Capcom revealed their official Nijisanji X Street Fighter 6 collaboration with some of the big VTuber roster shown off to be featured in special collector items.
From the Nijisanji Project, Kuzuha as been redesigned to be Luke, Yashiro Kizuku as Ryu, Azuchi Momo for classic Chun-Li, Ibrahim as Ken, Sasaki Saku as E. Honda, and Kanda Shoichi becoming JP.
For the promotion, each VTuber has their Street Fighter costume featured across a number of different products including wall scrolls, throw pillows, acrylic stands, bags, keychains and buttons.
It’s not surprising to see Capcom get closer with VTubers after the recent CR Cup events have been massive successes for Street Fighter 6 in Japan, and don’t be surprised if we end up seeing more in the future.

You won’t be able to just go out and simply buy these, however, as they’re part of Capcom’s Capkuji service.
Capkuji is one of those gacha / lottery services that’ll send users a random item for each pull they buy, which in this case seems to be 880 Yen (~$6 USD).
That being said, though, if you know where to look, you can probably find somewhere online to get exactly what you’d want if you need them that badly.
Orders for the Nijisanji X SF6 collaboration are set to open on October 20 and run through November 2 though aren’t scheduled to actually ship out until early-mid March 2024.
These items are of course only being shipped in Japan as well, but again, you can probably find them if you know where to look.
