Ryu and Ken become mech pilots in cool new Street Fighter toy collaboration with Buttobuster… don’t laugh

Capcom and Japanese toy maker Takara-Tomy recently revealed a cool SF crossover that brings Ryu and Ken into the world of Buttobuster with their own custom remote-controlled mech suits to do battle on a new stage.

While the name may sound pretty funny in English, Buttobuster appears to be a neat modern take on the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots that I definitely would have asked my parents for growing up.

Two players hold a controller in each hand similarly to the Wii’s Wiimote + Nunchuck setup to punch and move the mechs until one pilot is ejected and sent flying out the top — in this case Ryu and Ken.

The robot designs are based on the iconic Shotos’ gi color schemes with Ryu’s robo-fists stamped with his signature martial arts gloves while both of their arms feature the Street Fighter 5 logo.
