We’re now at the point where Spy x Family is known beyond the general anime audience. Everyone wants a piece of the action. But Spy x Family also needs its share of publicity. With the movie set to premiere in Japan just around the corner and in the US and Europe sometime next year, it’s normal for them to seek collaborations with similar franchises. Even if those franchises are ones you wouldn’t have initially thought of, like Street Fighter.

To celebrate the release of Spy x Family Code: White, the franchise’s first movie, they’ve announced a collaboration with Street Fighter 6. Although this collaboration won’t kick off until January 9, they’ve teased us with a short anime featuring a showdown between Yor, the assassin and protagonist mother of the family in the series, and Chun-Li, the legendary martial artist from one of the world’s most famous franchises. All of this beautifully animated by WIT STUDIO, the team behind the Spy x Family anime.

Although Spy x Family Code: White is set to premiere on December 22 in Japan, with Crunchyroll confirming its arrival in Western theaters in 2024, this collaboration won’t begin until January 9. What it entails is something we’re still not entirely sure about. Whether it’ll involve in-game cosmetics or playable characters of some kind is something we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out.

Spy x Family’s second season is currently airing and can be viewed on Crunchyroll. Street Fighter 6 is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. While we’re yet to know the specifics of this collaboration, we can appreciate the beauty of this short battle between these two women.
