Capcom released a ton of information on Street Fighter 5's upcoming March update just the other day. Among the release dates and new Alex information, the Capcom Unity blog entry noted a small, but very interesting detail that may have gone unnoticed.


Apparently, those who purchase Street Fighter 5's season pass won't only get each new DLC character this year and access to each of the premium costumes before the Zenny function launches. Season pass owners will also be receiving a brand new stage, for free, sometime in the near future.

Though no other details about what this stage could be were shared, this is the first we've heard of new stages being added into the game.

If you're not planning on buying the season pass, though, don't worry. Capcom is giving all Street Fighter 5 users Ryu and Chun-Li's story mode costumes free of charge on March 30th.

The story mode costumes and Alex -- Street Fighter 5's first DLC character -- will be dropping on Wednesday, March 30th. But fans will be able to enjoy some of the game's robust new features sooner than that.

On Monday, March 28th, players will see an improvement to the game's online experience. Users will be given the ability to create 8-player lobbies complete with spectator mode.

Additionally, ranked and casual matches will provide players with the new rematch option that allows the two combatants to take part in a 2/3 set, if both players agree.

We'll also be seeing the implementation of Street Fighter 5's Challenge Mode.

Included here you'll find a series of in-game tutorials ranging from beginner to advanced. We'll also be given character-specific lessons that aim to kick-start a player's journey into the world of Street Fighter 5.

But if you're anything like me, you're probably anxiously awaiting the new trial mode. This feature will also be added on Monday, and much like the Street Fighter 4 series we'll be given the opportunity to complete basic to pro combos for each character.

Finishing trials will earn you some extra Fight Money.
