Ready to rumble with more Street Fighter IV Play Arts Kai

Ken and Sakura are the newest additions

[Update: More pre-order links added!]

Square-Enix have already portrayed a good deal of the cast of Super Street Fighter IV in Play Arts Kai form and they're showing now signs of slowing down yet as the latest pair of releases are now up for pre-order. This time it's Ryu's best friend/rival Ken and his ever-persistent fangirl Sakura.

I have to say of these two I much prefer Ken, whose muscled, cartoonish physique fits in far better with the chunky, heavily jointed style of Play Arts Kai. It's a little much for Sakura's more petite design, and also has the unfortunate side effect of leaving her skirt hilariously short, even by figure standards.

Regardless, the sculpt and details look to match the high quality we expect from the line, though given a few reports of dodgy paintwork, we'll have to wait until they're on shelves for final confirmation. If you feel like adding these two to your roster, they'll be out in August for ¥7,200 each.
