Street Fighter now has an official line of business ties that make sound effects in case you want to celebrate your job interview with a Shoryuken

They actually look pretty nice

Street Fighter has seen an almost endless amount of merchandise and memorabilia feature its iconic characters and visuals in the franchise's 32-year history from toys to solid blocks of gold though there's been a distinct lack of business attire... until now.

Capcom recently announced and has since released a set of Street Fighter 2 neckties based on the world warriors that actually look fairly tasteful — and they can make sound effects too.

Four classic fighters have received a business makeover with Ryu, Chun-Li, E. Honda and Dhalsim each getting their own designs. Each set comes with their choice of one of three colors with wine red, navy or light blue — except for Dhalsim who has green instead.

The ties feature the character portrait for the fighters in question on the small end while the main visuals are based around something of the character's design or attacks. Dhalsim's has his Yoga Fire, Honda has the hundred-hand slap, Chun-Li's is decorated with her spiked bracelets and Ryu's has stripes which likely represent his headband.

Every tie comes with a sound unit that will make special attack like the 'Shoryuken' or other sound effects like 'you win' when pressed down. For those looking to wear the accessory without worrying about making fighting game sounds at inappropriate times, luckily the small sound box can easily be removed and even used as a key-chain with the character portraits on them.

The price set for these new fashion items are set at 2,900 yen ($26 USD) via Pablo Creation though they do not appear to be available to purchase online officially at this time, unfortunately. You can take a closer look at all of the tie designs below plus a hands-on look at Ryu's in the video after the jump.
