Did you know that Capcom is partnered with Japan’s men and women’s volleyball teams? Well now you do – the famed game developer is a top supporter of the national teams, which are set to compete in the FIVB’s Nations League tournament that kicks off today. To celebrate, the company’s posted promo art of some of its most famed characters playing volleyball:



That’s Luke and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, a Felyne and Rathalos from Monster Hunter, Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil, and Mega Man.EXE from Mega Man Battle Network. There are some cute details here, like Leon as the coach, Luke wearing a 6 and Chun-Li wearing a 2 to signify which Street Fighter game their design is based on, and Mega Man wearing a 21 as a nod to how many years it’s been since MMBN debuted. It’s a really fun way to bring attention to the competition. Best of luck to all the teams vying for the league championship!
