Minecraft Juri is one step closer to Juri metaverse supremacy


Street Fighter Skin Pack now live

Destructoid isn’t really much of a Minecraft website. And, to be honest, I’m not a Minecraft player at all. I’ll tell you what I am though: Juri’s long-suffering #1 fan. And as such, when my gal shows up in other video games, I’ll be reporting on it under a thin veil of Important Gaming Newz.

So what we have here is a brand new Minecraft: The World Warrior DLC pack, which is now available to purchase for Mojang’s blockbuster (multiple meanings y’see?) crafting adventure. Officially licensed by Capcom and designed by Minecraft companion team 57Digital, the new skin pack features a selection of Street Fighter greats, all ready to throw down in the unnervingly cubic world of Minecraft.

As you can see from the short video below, the pack includes original street beaters Ryu and Ken, along with iconic legends Chun-Li, Balrog, Zangief, Dhalsim, Blanka, Akuma, M. Bison, Guile, and E. Honda. Flying the flag for the latter-day characters we have Alex, Seth, Juri, and everyone’s favorite grinning maniac, Luke.

There are a whopping 35 Street Fighter x Minecraft character skins in total, including Sakura, Rose, Poison, Cody, Violent Ken, and even that loser, G. They all look pretty groovy, I think you’ll agree. It’s neat how much personality can be afforded these incredibly basic character models. These are just model skins, so I don’t think Ryu will be hitting hadoken anytime soon. At least he can attack you with a pickaxe, just like in Street Fighter III.

The real news here is Juri being one step closer to world domination — a platform I not only support financially, but encourage violently. Hopefully, the high-kicking Korean nutjob will turn up in some others titles soon. I expect to see her in Roblox, The King of Fighters XV, Horizon Forbidden West, and that Chip ‘n’ Dale tripe before the year is through. C’mon… You’re not done already, are ya?

The Minecraft: World Warrior Pack is now available to purchase from the Minecraft marketplace, priced at 490 Minecoins, or roughly $4-5 USD. Check out the full skin pack right here.
