I’m not sure Ryu is the best model to smell good
Street Fighter is still probably Capcom’s largest property in terms of official crossovers and cross-country campaigns, which take world warriors on journeys far away from the kingdom̵
The latest of them showed up this week with a crossover event now taking place in Fist of the North Star Legends ReVive, and there is also a new series of Street Fighter scents on the way as well.
Fist of the North Star added Ryu, Chun-Li, Sakura and M. Bison to the list of martial artists available to unlock via the mobile standard Gacha approach.
The mobile RPG also includes event missions to take on the Street Fighter stars, each told in the iconic Hokuto no Ken style, which is a good touch.
Presumably, the game’s website suggests that you can get Sakura to sign in for free during the promotion, but I currently do not see anything about it in the game itself at the moment.

Often crossovers like these are only locked in Japan or Asia, but Sega also brought the FOTNS and Street Fighter event to the West, where it is planned to remain available until May 20th.
Around the same time, Capcom and Davidoff unveiled a new series of Street Fighter scents based in some way based on Ryu and Chun-Li.

Ryus Davidoff’s Cool Water Champion Edition ‘For Him’ is said to be a blend of “black pepper and green mandarin mixed with gaiac wood”, while Chun-Li’s “For Her” is described as “green mandarin and absolutely of tuberose, mixed with juicy pear deal. “
Funny enough, this is not the first time Street Fighter perfume / cologne has hit the market in recent years, as Everlast previously released fragrances for Ryu and Balrog.
Unfortunately, these new Davidoff fragrances do not appear to be available in North America yet, but they can be picked up in Europe for € 50, which is equivalent to around $ 60 USD.
