Capcom has heard the cries of frustrated players, and though we don't have an official timeline quite yet, we'll "soon" be able to get our hands on Street Fighter 5 character colors that have been locked behind one of the game's toughest challenges.

We'll finally be seeing those hard-to-nab Hard Mode colors on our favorite characters. Thank you to originalhuman for the tip.

Street Fighter 5's 'mystery costume' is a little too cryptic to be for a currently revealed character; here's what we think it might be

Earlier today, we saw the reveal of a new Street Fighter 5 DLC bundle called the CPT Premier Package. This new content was made in honor of the Capcom Pro Tour and features new costumes, colors, and a brand new stage.

This DLC pack and its contents will become available today -- most likely once the Street Fighter 5 servers are up and running again around 5 p.m. PDT. However, there is one part of this bundle that players won't be able to access just yet.

Capcom announced that a "mystery costume" will join this update at a later time. Here is a quick description of the costume directly from Capcom Unity:

"We also have one more mystery costume that we will be revealing later in the year. This costume is very special and we think fans will be really excited about what this means for Capcom Cup 2016 once we officially unveil it. Stay tuned!"

By now, you've probably heard about Street Fighter 5's new DLC bundle, the CPT Premier Package. During today's Capcom panel at EVO, more details regarding the new content were revealed during the Q&A session.

According to one of the Capcom panelists, Street Fighter 5's new CPT colors and titles are exclusive to PlayStation 4. They can only be acquired by purchasing the Premier Package bundle, which is also a PS4 exclusive.

Wolfkrone becomes first Street Fighter 5 player to reach Super Diamond rank

Wolfkrone has been putting a ton of time into Street Fighter 5's online ranked mode.

Not long ago, the Laura player became the first (to our knowledge) to legitimately hit the very impressive Super Diamond rank, making him the #1 player on the leaderboards at the time. For those who may not know, Super Diamond rank is achieved when a player earns 20,000 LP.

You can see Wolfkrone's rank and LP in the screenshot below.

As of this morning, Krone has dipped a little bit in LP, coming in at 19,789. However, the fact that he's managed to obtain such a high number and rank is still something to behold, and we're sure it won't be long until he's back up to 20k.

You can check out a recent set of Super Diamond Wolfkrone in action below.

Seth Killian - Street Fighter 5 is not a good game for me, but I really like watching it

At this year's EVO, Yahoo's Michael "Bizarro Mike" Martin caught up with the legendary Seth Killian for a quick interview.

During their talk, Killian discussed his ventures with Riot, this EVO's "bloodbath" of a climate and gave his thoughts on Street Fighter 5 as a game in general.

He explains that this iteration of Street Fighter is a "puncher's game" wherein players are encouraged to go more all out with their offense. This doesn't really fit Killian's playstyle, as he notes,

"It's not a good game for me, but I really like watching it... my personal style is a little bit more controlled, a little bit more reserved."

Killian's insight on anything gaming is always refreshing, so be sure to check out the full interview after the jump below.

It's Smash Bros. meets Street Fighter meets... Looney-Toons? Brawlout is a new competitive platform fighter, and it will make its debut at EVO

Angry Mob Games is putting together a new competitive platform fighter that takes heavy inspiration from the Super Smash Bros. series. Entitled "Brawlout," this new fighting title pits up to eight players against each other in a variety of different game modes.

Brawlout's core mechanics function much like Smash Bros. -- players do battle upon a platform, deal damage in the form of increasing percentage, and must knock each other out of the boundaries of the arena for the KO. The game will feature characters with unique playstyles, and according to the press release from Angry Mob takes inspiration in the violence department from Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and even Looney-Toons.

For anyone looking to check out the game, it will be making its public debut at EVO 2016 at The Mix: EVO Indie Showcase. Brawlout is set for release in Q1 of 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

'Download complete' - Infiltration wins EVO 2016, continues his reign as the world's greatest Street Fighter 5 player

The largest fighting game tournament of the year, EVO, took place this past weekend. Players from all walks of life congregated in Las Vegas to throw down in nine main games (as well as a plethora of side games) and determine who is the best in the world.

With over 5,000 entrants in Street Fighter 5 -- easily the largest tournament in the franchise's history -- this year's event proved to be one of the most exciting we've ever seen.

Seon-Woo Lee, better known as RZR|Infiltration, was a favorite to win EVO's first Street Fighter 5 tournament due to the dominance he has displayed throughout the year so far. Much as fans expected, Infiltration took home the gold last night, but not before fighting through a gauntlet of incredibly strong players.

One of the sensational players to give the newly crowned Street Fighter 5 champion a run for his fight money was fellow Razer competitor Fuudo. In the winners finals set, Fuudo's R. Mika proved to be a worthy adversary for the exceptional Nash player, bringing the exhilarating set to the final round of the final game.

Closing out strong, Fuudo managed to take the round with a fake jab into command throw mix up, catching Infiltration off guard and sending him to the losers side of the bracket.

The English translation of RB|Daigo Umehara's book "Willpower to Keep Winning" will be available for purchase exclusively at EVO 2016.

There will be a very limited number of copies available, so if you want one, you'd best make it a first stop upon arrival. Jiyuna, producer of DaigoTheBeasTV, has shared just one page of The Beast's book on his Twitter, and it's amazing.

In three simple paragraphs, Daigo expresses a specific avenue of his fighting game approach. He does so in such an inspiring and relatable way that we can't even mouth the words as we read silently on account of our wide-hanging jaws.
