The lights are on
Sanrio brought a limited-edition Akuma Kitty plushie to San Diego Comic Con 2013, along with a few other crossover characters.
In addition to the rather fierce-looking Akuma, the case also featured Street Fighter's Guile, Ken, E. Honda, Dhalsim, and Zangief, as seen through a Hello Kitty lens, along with a limited-edition Badtz-Maru Ryu plushie. They appeared along with the previously released Chun Li, Ryu, and M. Bison. If you weren't at Comic Con to purchase one, you're probably out of luck; Akuma was exclusive to the show. The rest of the cast will likely start appearing on Sanrio's online store soon.
