Street Fighter V's R. Mika's Default Costume Was Judged too Sexy by the ESPN at EVO

Yesterday EVO 2016 saw the crowning of Infiltration as the Street Fighter V champion, and Fuudo, who ended up in second place, had a bit of an issue… with R. Mika’s default costume.

After the first match, Fuudo was asked to change Mika’s costume after the first match, because the ESPN deemed it too sexy for its TV audience, as revealed by Ryan Harvey, who was the interpreter on-site and had to explain the whole thing to the pro-player.

This explains why Mika’s costume was suddenly changed to the much less revealing Story 1 suit for the rest of the broadcast.

While this is just personal speculation, ESPN’s involvement might also be the reason behind the recent removal of the 3D bumps created by Cammy’s nipples on her costume. The timing certainly fits.
