The official Twitter account of the Spy x Family anime shared the collaboration visual with the fans, and teased that more details will be announced at a later date. It is not clear yet what kind of collaboration it will be, but fans are speculating that it could involve a crossover video, a special event, or even a playable character in Street Fighter 6. Some fans are also hoping that the collaboration will lead to a global release of the Spy x Family movie, as there is no confirmation yet whether the movie will be available outside of Japan.
