Cat-themed mobile games are nothing new in these parts, but it's certainly not everyday we get to see official Street Fighter support for one... and one that looks pretty out there at that.

The Battle Cats, also known as Nyanko Daisensou in Japan, recently started a new promotion to bring some of Street Fighter's most recognizable faces to the game while turning some of them into animals.

In an age where Battle Cats have taken over the world with their cuteness, the game functions like a tower defense-style auto-battler where the player can amass a feline army to take down the opposing forces.

There's a number of bizzare yet cute creatures at your disposal including ones that have mildly disturbing human legs or torsos plus pretty much every other theme you could possibly think of... including Bondage Cat.

Human versions of Ryu, Akuma, Chun-Li, Guile, Zangief, Blanka Dhalsim and Ken are available as potential Uber Rare Cat unlocks along with kitty versions of Ryu and Chunners... and Akuma as a giraffe for some reason.

A bonus car destruction stage is also playable in reference of course to Street Fighter 2's iconic bonus stage.

The Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition Collaboration Event is currently going on in Battle Cats until November 15, 2019 where the game itself is currently available on iOS and Android devices for free though a PC version is no longer supported.

We've compiled some of the odd promotional art and characters in the cat gallery below along with a Japanese trailer for the event I'm not sure anyone was asking for. Maybe we can get Marvel vs. Catcom next.
