Street Fighter II: The Official Curry

Street Fighter II: The Official Curry

In Japan, "Dhalsim curry" recently went on sale. Dhalsim, of course, is the fire-breathing fighter from Street Fighter II. Curry, of course, is delicious.

Website Gigazine tried out the curry, which it described as extremely hot, causing the site's reviewer to break out in a sweat.

As you can see, the box says the curry is made with habanero peppers.

It's an official Capcom product!

If you've never had Japanese curry, it's sold in packets like this that can easily be heated up and served with rice.

Of course, people make their own curry as well.

Gigazine does not recommend eating the Dhalsim curry unless you like extremely spicy food — oh, and Street Fighter.

Offered by web retailer Geek Store Life, the curry is now sold out. A pack of five went for 2,700 yen (US$26), which makes this rather expensive for curry. For example, a pack of your typical Japanese curry goes for around a dollar. But can you really put a price on Yoga Fire?

    Out the mouth comes the Yoga fire... out the other end... YOGA FLAME!

      LOL this!

      Here is some useless game trivia! That Yoga Flame move you described was parodied by a fighting game called Timeslaughter 2. A character named Mojumbo, a voodoo priest but with striking resemblance to Dhalsim, could propell flaming farts towards his opponent.

        Haha, I remember playing the Bloodlust Software Timeslaughter games! Shamless rip-offs.

        Speaking of SF rip-offs - there was also SNK's World Heroes series on the Neo Geo that had fighters "inspired" by SF characters as well, with a few Tekken clones to boot. The Dhalsim rip-off was a "mad monk" modelled after Rasputin (with the same name). There was a Ryu-like character, an M. Bison clone wearing a Nazi-inspired uniform and an android robot character called Brocken which ripped off Jack from Tekken 2.

        It was actually a really fun game. I loved the "hazard" arenas where the sides had electricity, fire, spikes, etc. for environmental damage.

        Timeslaughter was terrible though.

    Going to get my hands on this at some point. Curry is life.
