The world warriors go from Street Fighter to street fashion in these hip artwork makeovers from Street Fighter: Duel

The base roster of world warriors haven't seen their standard designs change too much over the past 30 years, so it's all the more interesting to see more modern makeovers show up for the most recognizable cast in fighting games — especially when it's done in a somewhat official capacity.

Street Fighter: Duel is a Chinese mobile game set in the universe of Capcom's flagship fighting game, but perhaps the most standout part of the whole project is the artwork which turns characters like M. Bison, Blanka and Cammy into modern Asian street fashion models.

While we've some of the works in the past, concept artist Xin Wang recently posted a bunch more of his Duel designs used to help promote the new game.

Ken, for example, is now a hip skater guy with baggy clothes, chains and plenty of accessories though it almost makes you wonder why they didn't use Yun or Yang here to fit even more perfectly.

M. Bison certainly looks like a crime boss with his red business suit and leather gloves with rings on top while replacing his cape with a pretty badass coat that hangs off of his shoulders.

These new works also give new makeovers for Dhalsim, Vega, Sakura, E. Honda and Akuma with some of them looking like outfits the characters might actually want to wear — unlike Guile.

Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your tastes, these designs are not really used in Duel's actual gameplay since they decided to stick with the Street Fighter 4 iterations of the characters.

Street Fighter: Duel is currently only available in China with no announced plans to bring the mobile title elsewhere, but at least we have some neat new official art to look at even if we never get to actually play it.
