If you're a fan of Ken's design in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate then this new Street Fighter 5 mod may be for you — fixed face included

Ken is the first Echo Fighter in fighting games, so it was no surprise to hear that he was heavily rumored and then confirmed to be joining his friend and rival, Ryu, as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

His design in the massive fighter resembles that of Ken's Street Fighter 2 days from over 25 years ago that's been modernized in a similar way to Ryu which had many fans feeling Nintendo did a better job with the character's looks than Capcom themselves in Street Fighter 5.

Now, thanks to some new PC mods, Street Fighter players on PC can now play as the newly designed Ken in Arcade Edition with the costume created by SleepingMaster that looks great in stills and in motion — plus it includes some fixes to Ken's infamous SF5 face.

PC Best Mods recently uploaded a video to their YouTube channel to show off the PC mod in action in conjunction with the Mysterious Mod that changes around aspects of Street Fighter 5's gameplay like juggle combos and even adds secondary Critical Arts.

It's not an absolutely perfect fan creation, but this redesigned outfit is a great representation of the classic Street Fighter 2 Ken brought back to life in a game that's had some official classic costumes come out in recent months.

Perhaps Capcom will eventually create a similar costume themselves for one of fighting games' most iconic designs, but until then we still have this mod from dedicated fans to bring classic Ken back to Street Fighter from Super Smash Bros. You can check out the modded outfit in the video after the jump.
