Adventures with Hot Ryu shows how Street Fighter 5 does steamy bromance

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

How does one crank up the temperature on Hot Ryu? That requires modding the Windows PC version of Street Fighter 5, swapping in Ryu's character model for a couple other fighters — newcomer Laura and Street Fighter Alpha 3 veteran R. Mika — and letting their sultry animation do the heavy lifting.

YouTube creator "Tommy" put together a compilation of Hot Ryu doing all the back-arching, cheek-slapping and sundry slinking that's normally reserved for the women of Street Fighter 5, and the result pretty much speaks for itself. We should probably warn that Tommy also swapped in Ken's model for Nadeshiko's, and the hot bromance on display verges on scorching.
