The Street Fighter V community once again has the opportunity to support the game’s competitive circuit by spending on a new batch of Capcom Pro Tour DLC.
Two of the most storied characters in the series are getting formal attires, with Ryu sporting a traditional Japanese festival outfit and Ken donning a flashy tuxedo. In addition, this year’s Capcom Pro Tour DLC will introduce another Capcom Pro Tour-themed stage. Not to forget, last year’s winner Du “NuckleDu” Dang will be collaborating with the developer on his Champion’s Choice Costume.
For the time being, Capcom has only revealed the new costumes for Ryu and Ken. Details regarding the new stage and this year’s Champion’s Choice Costume will arrive at a later date.
Those interested in saving a few bucks can opt for the Capcom Pro Tour 2017 Premier Pass, which bundles together the aforementioned content as well as two exclusive titles, a special Capcom Cup color for every character in the current roster, and monthly in-game targets that reward players with bonus Fight Money.
The Capcom Pro Tour 2017 Premier Pass will be available for $24.99. However, the costumes and stage can be purchased individually as well. The costumes will set players back $5.99 each, while the Capcom Pro Tour stage will go for $9.99.
Do note that the Capcom Pro Tour DLC will remain in the shop for a limited time and be retired at the end of November. The developer has stated that it has no plans of re-releasing the costumes and stages that were part of previous Pro Tours.
For those unaware, a certain percentage of the Capcom Pro Tour DLC revenue will go into the Capcom Cup 2017 prize pool.
“A minimum of 30% of the revenue will go to the Capcom Cup 2017 prize pool, and an additional 50% of the revenue is invested into Capcom Pro Tour production,” reminded the developer on the PlayStation Blog. “That means that Capcom contributes more than 80% of all CPT DLC revenue directly to support Capcom Pro Tour initiatives.”
The timing of the announcement is rather strange. Last week, Capcom announced that it is delaying its next Street Fighter V DLC character because it wants to host another beta for its overhauled Capcom Fighters Network (CFN). This also means that the balance update has been pushed back as well. The same disappointed community is now being told about the arrival of new costumes.
