Work-themed costumes coming to Street Fighter 5 on April 25th

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • April 20, 2017 at 8:31 a.m. PDT

Capcom Unity's latest blog announces even more costumes for Street Fighter 5.

According to the post this morning, "work-themed" alternate outfits for Alex, R. Mika, and Chun-Li are set to be released on April 25th. They will arrive alongside the School costumes and Thailand remastered stage.

The idea behind these costumes is to channel what types of jobs each of these characters would have if they weren't fighting. Alex takes on the role of a firefighter, R. Mika is a spirited cheerleader, and Chun-Li is a businesswoman.

Each costume will cost $3.99 / ¥400 / €3.99.

Another Chun costume because there's definitely not enough of those. SMH. Not even upset because I expect disappointment.

I wonder why they keep spending outfits on Chun Li considering she's one of the least used characters

Chunli costumes costing more than the season pass at this point.

Alex outfit looks dope
chuns outfit looks hot

Alex look dope

Xykes said on April 20, 2017 at 8:37 a.m.

Either because they sell well or because Chun Li is queen and deserves them.

Either line of reasoning is 100% valid.

*Still waiting for Nostalgia costume of Alex & Ibuki*

Alex's outfit looks DOPE

So does Mika fight with the pompoms in hand?

Alex's massive hose confirmed top tier for S2

Stripper Alex?

#15
TwoCoins said on April 20, 2017 at 8:38 a.m.

I'm surprised Alex is getting as much outfits as RYU. Yet still wont buff him outside low to mid low tier. Still no Nolstagia outfit from 10 months ago ago tho. So they probably holding it for some kind of classic theme or third strike dlc or something.

#16
Xykes said on April 20, 2017 at 8:38 a.m.

He looks super dope.

Don't know how anyone could hate a tribute to New York firefighters.

Last I checked, Chun Li already had a work outfit...

F'ck this sh1t, fix the damn game instead of making quick cash-in costumes.

Chin Li already has a police uniform. Working for the police is a job. Unbelievable.

This is master level trolling by Capcom.

Alex has a cool costume.

What about Vega?

Capcoms obsessed with buffing cammy and making costumes for chun li.

chun-li is like a model in this game just to showcase costumes.

Does the Air Force Base and Kanzuki Beach stages changes coming with April's 25th update?

As for these costumes... they all suck.

Jarrell4 said on April 20, 2017 at 8:52 a.m.

Alex's looks pretty dope. Mika's looks pretty neat. And I'm sure they will look even better with alternate colors.
Chun-Li needs to gtfo though

#39
LeonX said on April 20, 2017 at 8:52 a.m.

A hahahahahaha another Chun-Li costume LoL

#40
ZenGaijin said on April 20, 2017 at 8:52 a.m.

Great Alex costume......that being said can we get two or 3 costume sets where Chun doesn't get an outfit?

#41
SSfox said on April 20, 2017 at 8:53 a.m.

I don't hate Chun, actually even think she's awesome (even tho i don't main her), but really... another costume for guess who?... well... Chun... Obviously... I guess it's too much to ask for Cashcop to show some love for some other characters...

#42
meltsy said on April 20, 2017 at 8:53 a.m.

Yay more "premium" (aka paid) content

Got a feeling so complicated

FengShuiMachine said on April 20, 2017 at 8:53 a.m.

Dude alex looks awesome i dunno what your complainning about , at least he has a kick ass costume, and chun looks great, lets not take that away from her, lets just start demanding costumes for them characyer that only have 3 costums

#45
Phtm_Miria said on April 20, 2017 at 8:54 a.m.

Another Chun-Li costume? Outrageous!

Everybody knows that this game should have completely different priorities!

And by that I mean that what this game needs are more Cammy costumes!

#46
malcrash01 said on April 20, 2017 at 8:54 a.m.

AND YOU GET A CHUN LI COSTUME AND YOU TOO! EVERYONE GETS A CHUN LI COSTUME!!

Oh.....

ok.

mercurian said on April 20, 2017 at 8:57 a.m.

At least the Mika one is good. Not sure if you can actually clap with pom poms on though. Do we really need more Chun costumes?

#51
Evorgleb said on April 20, 2017 at 8:57 a.m.

Well they do need to keep revenue coming in to justify continued development. If you want the gameplay to get better you should stop complaining about costumes. You should actually be begging for more costumes. You should be tweeting to Capcom 5 times a day like "@streetfighter PLZ gives us more Chun costumes. She's THICC"

Love that Mika and Chun outfits good work Capcom. Definitely buying those 2 with the whole school set. 2 Chuns in row yay and best Mika alt!

Rescue Me flashback from New York stage+firefighter Alex, good show.

Another chun costume...

Another one...another one..another one..

#55
Xar5000 said on April 20, 2017 at 9 a.m.

This doesn't make any sense anymore. Yeah, the Chun Li costume looks nice but they should have given it to someone else. I'm already sick of Capcom given her so many at this point.

#56
SunaharaRaja said on April 20, 2017 at 9:01 a.m.

Wehre are the Cammy costumes capcom, C'mom!

#57
Crodacus said on April 20, 2017 at 9:01 a.m.

Capcom says Cammy needs more buffs and chun needs more costumes.

#58
Zephyrus said on April 20, 2017 at 9:01 a.m.

starting to believe that when balrog, birdie, bison, fang, guile, urien and dhalsim get their costumes, they'll just be cosplays of chun-li.

Firefighter Alex looks alright. Not awesome like his demon costume, but not terrible like his story and premium costume

#61
Doh_Simpson said on April 20, 2017 at 9:05 a.m.

I'll pass on $3.99 for a single costume that doesn't do anything to my character. That's just me though, unless i get it for free I don't need a costume.

#62
xDONx said on April 20, 2017 at 9:05 a.m.

I think that Rashid will never get a new costume.

Lol how many costumes does Chun have? Also another horrid Alex costume.

RYU81 said on April 20, 2017 at 9:08 a.m.

they delay balance because don't have time to finish it but they have time to release costumes and stage.

#66
CoffeeClub said on April 20, 2017 at 9:08 a.m.

What's wrong with those Capcom Guys. Where is Alex classic costume? Why another one for Chun? Why no costumes für Birdie etc.?

#67
JuriIsBae said on April 20, 2017 at 9:09 a.m.

Chun already has a work themed costume
. Isn't she a Police officer?

#68
ABMone said on April 20, 2017 at 9:09 a.m.

The Alex costume is sick! Way better than a nostalgia one.

The chun is very nice but yes there's like way too many to pick from for her.

I think the Mika one is cheesy and tacky. I think they missed the mark on it. Maybe different colored ones will look better

#69
Demon_00 said on April 20, 2017 at 9:09 a.m.

Hey look: more Chun Li costumes I am not going to buy

#70
GiBGUN said on April 20, 2017 at 9:10 a.m.

Considering how long ago we saw the classic Alex costume, I'm a little surprised they released this firefighter one first, but I guess its to go along with the timing for the work theme.

I wonder if any of these costumes will have variations that can be accessed by holding down a button combination...some of the unused illustrations look great as always, so would be cool to have access to at least one of them somehow.

finalthrash said on April 20, 2017 at 9:18 a.m.

The real question is, will this Mika be banned in tournament because the Pom poms interfere with the beutral, like kanzuki beach stage ?

robot_mauk said on April 20, 2017 at 9:18 a.m.

Capcom if you're reading this, I promise you, we don't need anymore chun costumes.

and yet no new karin skin

#84
That_guy_who_plays_DOA said on April 20, 2017 at 9:21 a.m.

Glad they prioritized these over their new character. It was probably Taylor, and when fan reaction was overly "meh" they dropped him completely and are pumping out a new design lmao.
These costumes are sh*t btw

yes, before all bugs getting solved and the game runs smooth - we need more cosmetic stuff. all only for real money, because someone must pay the guys the should solve the bugs.

WT-LIVING-F is up with Capcom's obsession with Chun Costumes. This is getting ridiculous!

Theres A LOT more characters that need costumes.

Chun Fighter V

Only if by Ken, you mean Chun.

So Chun now has 7 alternate costumes. Cause she TOTALLY needs them right? :S Chun bias is too real.

#91
TCal said on April 20, 2017 at 9:26 a.m.

Another Chun costume...

#92
cuzzo said on April 20, 2017 at 9:27 a.m.

Considering the "idea behind" these costumes, what the fighters would do if they weren't fighters.. Ryu would have been nice to see, Bison or Balrog? Maybe even an factual family man Guile. Urien? Juri???

#93
thisRalf said on April 20, 2017 at 9:28 a.m.

I love this: I love seeing characters in normal mundane clothes. Chun-li looks hot in that costume, but I personally find ladies in business suits insanely attractive. Alex stripper Fireman costume also looks great. Mika... that is expected.

Seriously though, can we see one new costume for Birdie? I know they aren't the most used of characters, but c'mon, give him a hotdog vendor costume or something. Or bouncer suit for a club. I don't know.

Or FANG: make him a clown. Seriously. A clown costume as a job. That would be terrifying. And awesome. And not a scary one, or a weird one, just a clown.

#94
GiBGUN said on April 20, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.

Is that the missing Akiman costume for Chun that everyone was promised? Or do we still have yet another Chun costume inbound.

#95
kabal31082 said on April 20, 2017 at 9:31 a.m.

So, 2nd costume pack announced in as many days.

The game mist be selling poorly. Rather than fix the issues the commu it had with the game l, they are going to flood the game with dlc costumes to make up revenue.

Just watch, there will be an influx of costume packs over the next month or so, as a way for Capcom to make up lost revenue.

#96
chemicalBirdkick said on April 20, 2017 at 9:31 a.m.

$24 the season pass is 30 I'm glad to see chun get more outfits. :) hopefully she gets one for cpt thiscyear as well

#97
SpaghettiCop said on April 20, 2017 at 9:31 a.m.

Classic Capcom. Salting the wound of a patch delay with boring, uninspired costumes. What's next? A night time variant of the training stage? Pajama Necalli?

#98
OPTIONneglect said on April 20, 2017 at 9:32 a.m.

Should worry about making a more solid fg other then costumes. Season 1-s2 they took a top tier character urien and made him better, took low tier Alex n made him worst. Seems like they're more worried about what they can sell at this point.

#99
Expiom said on April 20, 2017 at 9:32 a.m.
