Oh Mai Gawd... Why? SNK's fighting game goddess graces Wizardry Online MMORPG, has little elven babies with Samurai Shodown's Hanzo Hattori

Okay, so technically The King of Fighters's Mai Shiranui and Samurai Shodown's Hanzo Hattori can't make little babies in Japanese developer Gamepot's Wizard Online MMORPG -- there is no marriage system in the game.

But there are a lot of child-like, super-deformed versions of Mai and Hanzo running around in the Japanese version of the MMO now, thanks to a limited-time partnership with SNK Playmore that allows players to unlock avatar parts based on Mai and Hanzo.

If there's a silver lining to this story, then I suppose it's that Hanzo Hattori from Samurai Shodown is finally getting some action -- there hasn't been a new SamSho game in ages.

There's also a commemorative wallpaper featuring illustrations of the two characters put out by SNK Playmore's artists.

Hit the jump to see more pictures of the Mai Shiranui and Hanzo Hattori avatars, and the wallpapers.

The team currently has 5 characters and 11 stages available for fans to check out, and you can find their excellent trailer after the jump. Even if you're not a Dragonball Z fan, you should watch this, as the work they put into this trailer really shines through in its 5 minute run time.
