Street Fighter 6 Tourney Accidentally Flashes Chun-Li Nude Mod

A recent Street Fighter 6 European tournament saw quite the blunder as the event’s host, who was streaming the competition from their PC, accidentally left a nude mod for Chun-Li on during a match.

Things were off to a normal start during a July 31 tourney hosted by the Twitch channel Corner2Corner, as players pulled up to the weekly competition series.

Unfortunately, in the seventh of 96 matches for the day, things went awry. Between competitors Lensta’s Kimberly and Packz’s Chun-Li, the fight kicked off with the latter in the complete nude. Even the commentators couldn’t figure out how to address what one called the “interesting Chun-Li costume” as they nervously chuckled. According to a tweet from self-proclaimed “drama YouTuber” Nicholas DeOrio, the tournament host forgot to turn their naked mod off. In the end, the players exited the match, the organizers restarted the game to remove the mod, and everyone resumed the tournament. Packz was taken out by Lensta, who was, in turn, defeated in the second round. Packz, for his part, continued showing off his skills in the losers’ bracket before getting eliminated in the fourth round. Lensta was summarily eliminated in the losers’ bracket’s fourth round as well, with Guile player and Kick streamer imstilldadaddy winning the tournament.

Corner2Corner, the event’s organizers, commented the situation on August 1 saying, the nude mod was “accidentally left on for a few seconds,” calling it a mistake that will never happen again.

“Corner2Corner wish to address a recent mistake made on stream in which a graphical mod was accidentally left on for a few seconds in our recent tournament,” the group tweeted. “Some news stories have incorrectly blamed one of the players—this is NOT the case, it was our hosts PC streaming the match and his responsibility.”

The group also asked folks not to blame the players who competed in the tournament.

“Any negativity towards any players as a result of this genuine mistake is unacceptable and that is why we are making this statement,” Corner2Corner tweeted. “The mod is now removed—nothing like this will ever happen again.”

Kotaku reached out to Corner2Corner and Packz for comment.


Street Fighter 6 TMNT Costumes Cost Nearly As Much As The Game

I love a video game crossover as much as the next person, and fighting games are a perfect platform for absurd matchups. Unfortunately, at $15 each, the price of new Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello costumes in Street Fighter 6 is giving a lot of players sticker shock.

Announced during last weekend’s EVO 2023 fighting game tournament, the TMNT-themed cosmetics, which apply to the player’s custom avatar, are perfectly timed to cash in on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem movie hype. Or at least try to. The four turtle skins arrived in the game’s Battle Hub on August 8 costing 750 Fighter Coins apiece. That’s a big jump over the 50 coins needed to unlock each of the main cast’s alternate costumes.

Fighter Coins are Street Fighter 6‘s premium currency you acquire with real-world money, but you can only buy it in certain increments. For example, to get 750 coins you’d need to pay $12 for 610 coins and then $5 for an additional 250 coins. That would leave you with enough to buy the Leonardo costume and have 110 fighter coins left over. However, if you buy 2750 coins for $50, and another 250 coins for $5, you’ll have the exact amount you need to buy all four costumes with none of the non-refundable tokens left over.

There’s nothing exactly new about any of this for those who have been dealing with live-service microtransaction economies at any point over the past five years, but it still sucks. Even more so because it’s the god damn Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Each character is effectively just a color swap for the bandana and belt. “It’s whale bait,” wrote one commenter on a Street Fighter 6 subreddit debate about the subject.

The high price tags are unfortunately on par with those for new skins in games like Fortnite and Overwatch 2, though both of those games are free-to-play. And they are still cheaper than a single set of the freshest horse armor in Diablo IV. If you love the Turtles and plan to play Street Fighter 6 for hundreds of hours in the years to come, you’ll still get your money’s worth, in a way. Of course, you could also buy a whole other fighting game with that $60, or a dozen classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games with cash left over for a pepperoni pizza.

Cowabunga, dude? Not at those prices.


Street Fighter 6’s Newest Fighter Is A Slithering Nightmare

After briefly teasing the character during EVO 2023, Capcom has finally unveiled the poisonous fangs of Street Fighter 6‘s newest combatant, A.K.I., who will slither her way into the popular fighting game on September 27.

A student of the villainous F.A.N.G. from Street Fighter V, A.K.I. is a Chinese kenpo and shequan (or snake kung fu) martial artist who specializes in targeting her opponent’s vital spots using her venom-coated fingernails. She’s a slippery, sadistic dommy mommy, clad in a leather snakeskin-looking black cheongsam, a haircut that looks like Guile’s drenched in hair gel, and the creepiest smile ever as she pokes from range or slithers to close the gap. Her combos look particularly devastating, as her snake-like movements give her the flexibility to duck and dodge attacks while racking up poison damage.

A.K.I.’s critical art, known as a level three super here (essentially a character’s ultimate attack), looks equally brutalizing. Poking and prodding her opponent with her venomous (and perfectly manicured) fingernails, A.K.I., using her expertise in Chinese medicine, pinpoints and attacks the body’s weak spots. A.K.I. emits an almost Joker-like amount of maniacal laughter as her opponent’s body explodes at the end of the attack, and finally, she bends backward, smiling into the camera in pure ecstasy. It’s giving dominatrix, and I’m absolutely here for it.

I’m not the only one, though. Folks across the social media site with the dumbest name, X (formerly Twitter), are just as obsessed with and terrified of A.K.I. as I am. Someone’s already animated her slithering move, which sees her snake her body across the stage to reach her opponent. Another person set footage of the move to Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle,” which fits perfectly. A different poster said the character looks great because Capcom went all in on her “completely unhinged murderer aspect.” Meanwhile, a separate poster simply wondered what kind of “satanic shit” A.K.I. is on. Girl, same.

Unfortunately, A.K.I. won’t be free when she hits Street Fighter 6 this September. Capcom’s senior social media and community manager Andy Wong revealed on the PlayStation Blog that while you can play her for up to an hour with a rental fighter ticket (a currency you acquire from the game’s Fighting Pass), you’ll need either the Year 1 Character Pass DLC bundle, Deluxe Edition, or Ultimate Edition to play the slithering mistress. At least her deadly moves and stunning outfit will be unlockable and she comes with an entirely new area, Tian Hong Yuan, that you can explore. Hey, silver linings.
