Menat very fittingly becomes Futaba and Sakura transforms into the 'Queen' Makoto in these Street Fighter 5 to Persona 5 PC mods

Coincidence? I think not

The PC modding community appears to be a fairly thriving part of the online ecosystem in Street Fighter 5 with modders creating impressive and clever new costumes for fighters as well as new ways to play the game.

Persona 5 Arena still doesn't exist as far as we know, but modders have taken it upon themselves to make sure the RPG characters are still represented in fighting games even if it's by unofficial means.

Deviant Art user KhaledAntar666 created a Menat character mod which turns her into Futaba in her Oracle outfit from Persona 5 as well as another mod which turns Sakura into 'Queen' Makoto both of which are fitting picks for different reasons.

By some strange coincidence and stars aligning, Menat and Futaba are both voiced by Erica Lindbeck in English and Aoi Yuki in Japanese, so she'll sound quite similar to her source material no matter which voice over you prefer. Menat's orb also appears to change into Futaba's Persona, Necronomicon, the strips on her suit actually glow on and off and her energy effects become green instead of purple as shown in gameplay footage by MiChOcO

Most Persona party members use weapons in battle, but Makoto actually relies mostly on hand-to-hand combat to deal with Shadows making Sakura a great pick for a modded costume both in terms of looks and gameplay style. Masked and unmasked versions of both mods are also reportedly available to download.

This same modder also previously created another Persona 5 mod which turned Karin into Ann Takamaki which is also just as cool as the two here. You can take a closer look at the costumes in the gallery below and in action in the video after the jump.
