Different companies are attempting to encourage people to stay home in different ways as part of measures by governments to flatten the curve during the pandemic. When it comes to Capcom, it has taken a motivational poster sort of approach. The official Street Fighter Twitter account has begun sharing images encouraging people to stay home and engage in social distancing. So far, both Chun-Li and Ryu are used in images recommending people stay home.

The first promotional image features Ryu in his standard attire. He’s meditating in a dojo. In his promotional image, he suggests becoming a World Warrior without leaving the house. Multiple people in the tweet’s responses even turned it into a wallpaper for their mobile device.

The second image from Capcom focused on Chun-Li. She’s at home working out with some weights. This outfit is based upon her Nostalgia costume in Street Fighter V. However, the difference is is it is based on her Street Fighter Alpha track suit she would train in, only with the jacket removed from the one-piece.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition is available for the PlayStation 4 and PC. As a reminder, as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Capcom removed the first half of the Capcom Pro Tour 2020 dates and is tentatively going to have the second half of the competition in July 2020. However, that could change as the situation changes.
