Capcom just revealed a slew of new character outfits and a brand new stage for Street Fighter V. The new stage, Thailand, is a throwback to the classic Thailand stage from past Street Fighter games, and fans will recognize it right away. See some of the gorgeous concept art in the gallery below. In addition to the new stage, several new character costumes will be coming as well, and everything drops on April 25.
"As revealed at our WonderCon 2017 panel," the latest Capcom-Unity update remarks, "the iconic Thailand Stage has been remastered and is making its debut in Street Fighter V. The Thailand Stage is where we all first met M. Bison, the evil dictator and head of Shadaloo, in Street Fighter II... The stage’s intricate bell and statues have been carefully recreated in SFV with great detail, as well as the stage’s memorable theme."
The Thailand stage can be purchased for $3.99. If you're confident in your ability and grit, and you're not afraid of grinding, you can also unlock the new stage for 70,000 fight money. Also available for $3.99 on April 25 will be new costumes for Chun-Li, Ryu, and Juri. All three new costumes are based on childlike drawings that were presented to fans during the Wondercon panel, but now they've been completely overhauled and inserted into the game. You can see all three characters rocking their new costumes in multiple brand-new screenshots in the gallery below.
"Ryu’s costume is based on a stereotypical Japanese Bancho (student gang leader) with direct input from a team member who actually used to wear clothes like this when he was younger. The lining on his coat depicts a faceoff between a Dragon and a Tiger. Keeping with the atmosphere of her origin, Chun-Li’s costume represents her as an Honor Roll student. She only has the highest standards for herself and always aims to be the top of her class. As you can see, Juri really pulls off the black lipstick and nails. The team had a lot of fun creating a Gothic schoolgirl look for her. We especially love the spider on the back of her jacket!"
Stay tuned for all of the latest on Street Fighter V!
