Minami Takahashi, 17, Sayaka Akimoto, 20, and other members of popular group AKB48 dressed up in in Chinese combat uniforms this week to promote the upcoming release of “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li,” directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak.
The girls were dressed up as Chun-Li, the main character in the film based on the popular arcade game, which is now in its fourth version. The girls put on a performance which saw them dance around in kung-fu style. Akimoto said: “I’ve been learning aikido for ages, and it was great to use some of the moves today.”
"Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" opens in cinemas on Saturday. Capcom has hinted at a possible "fifth" installment of "Street Fighter" depending on the success of "Street Fighter IV."© Japan Today
