This week, we look at a character cosplays inspired by some of your favorite combatants from recent fighting games (as well as some classics), and a few role-playing game surprises. Fighting game characters have always been interesting to see cosplayed, because you can really tell how their garb wouldn't be fit for close-quarters combat. Still, it's cool to see the pageantry of it all and the hard work that goes into recreating a fighting game character's duds. Check out the gallery below to see this week's picks.
