SuperCompleteSelectionGames is set to release Ryu-inspired Street Fighter gloves that replicate the iconic Hadoken move. These innovative gloves are equipped with motion-sensing technology, allowing users to perform various moves simply by mimicking the corresponding gestures. For instance, assuming the Hadoken pose will trigger the gloves to shout "Hadoken!"

The Street Fighter Hadoken gloves can be purchased exclusively through Premium Bandai. However, it's important to note that Premium Bandai does not offer international shipping, necessitating the use of a proxy service to acquire the gloves. Pre-orders are currently open and will close on September 15, 2023, with shipping expected to commence in January 2024. The price of the gloves is set at 9900 JPY, which roughly translates to 70.85 USD.

It's worth mentioning that while the trailer showcases gameplay from Street Fighter, the gloves themselves do not come with a copy of the game and should not be mistaken for traditional gaming controllers. Rather, they operate similarly to the popular game Bop It, where users follow the instructions given by the gloves to perform corresponding animations.

To secure your own pair of Street Fighter Ryu gloves, you can place a pre-order through Premium Bandai. The gloves are expected to ship in January 2024. Street Fighter 6 is currently available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC platforms, with the Rashid DLC set to be released on July 24, 2023.
