Celebrate Christmas With Street Fighter V Premium Holiday Costumes

By   /   Dec 2, 2016

With barely a day to go before the advent of Capcom Cup 2016, the developer has announced new Street Fighter V premium holiday costumes.

Celebrate the Christmas season and spread holiday joy by donning on the new outfits for Karin, Ken, Juri, Laura, R. Mika, and Zangief. There’s also a special Holiday-themed version of the New York stage (City in Chaos) in the mix, covered in freshly fallen snow and decorated with lights and ornaments for the festive season.

An announcement posted on the Capcom Unity blog reveals that each premium Holiday costume will cost players $3.99 / 3.99€ / £3.29 and include colors 1-10. As for the new Holiday stage, it will arrive with a price tag of $1.99 / 1.99€ / £1.29 or 40,000 Fight Money.

Those interested in acquiring all of this Holiday’s content can look towards the Holiday bundle which will feature all of the above in the slightly discounted price of $19.99 / 19.99€ / £15.99.

It’s important to note that the new costumes will be available for a limited time only on Steam and the PlayStation Store, and will be taken offline on January 17. It’s unknown if Capcom plans on bringing the costumes back in the store in the future.

As of now, there is no release date for the new Street Fighter V Holiday content. Capcom intends to announce the release date this weekend during Capcom Cup 2016. Suffice to say, the alternative costumes should go on sale in the coming week.

The Capcom Cup is the culmination of a long competitive season for the fighting game community. 32 of the best Street Fighter V players from around the globe are assembling under one roof this weekend for a share of the “largest prize pool in fighting game history.”

Thanks to the support of fans, sales from the Capcom Pro Tour DLC have managed to raise more than $150,000 in additional prize money. This puts the total pot over $400,000. Here is how the prize pool will be divided between the top three players:

  • 1st Place: $120,000 + CPT DLC Bonus
  • 2nd Place: $60,000 + CPT DLC Bonus
  • 3rd Place: $25,000 + CPT DLC Bonus

As is customary every year, the winner of Capcom Cup also gets the opportunity of working with Capcom to design an alternate costume for his favorite character. Last year’s Capcom Cup winner Ryota “Kazunoko” Inoue went with Necalli. The Samurai costume was part of the Capcom Pro Tour DLC and widely regarded as one of the best costumes in the game.

Capcom Cup 2016 will run alongside Sony’s annual fan-focused PlayStation Experience event. It’s scheduled to take place between December 2-3 at the Anaheim Convention Center in beautiful California. The developer has confirmed that new upcoming content for Street Fighter V will be playable for attendees on the show-floor.
