Necalli sheds his robe, Karin ditches her hat and Laura misplaces her top; more costume Easter eggs found in Street Fighter 5

It's fairly common knowledge now that you can unlock the old school Urien outfit in Street Fighter 5 by holding light punch, medium kick and heavy punch as the screen turns white after character select, but a recent discovery reveals that a handful of other characters have similar Easter eggs with certain costumes.


The three Capcom Pro Tour costumes, (featuring Necalli, Cammy and Chun-Li) can all be altered by holding all three punches, light kick and up during the loading transition. Similarly, the swimsuit costumes for Laura, Chun-Li, Karin, R. Mika and Ibuki can also be changed in this same manner.

It seems the running theme here is less clothing, as each character loses at least an article when this code is inputted. Karin, for instance, loses her beach hat, while Laura misplaces her jersey.

We nabbed three shots of each character in their reduced wardrobes. We also included one standard version of each character's costume so that you can more easily see the change.

In doing a bit of research we found that you do not need to start holding the appropriate buttons until after you hear the "swoosh" when the screen turns white after character select. If you're on the second player side, you'll need to continue holding until your character's intro animation begins.
