Have you noticed the mysterious Balrog costume that keeps popping up on Eleague?

Amidst all the hype of Eleague, a few keen eyes noticed a snippet in the background images that calls for some speculation at the very least.


One of TBS' background graphics lines up eight of the game's characters in ready stances, pretty run of the mill at first glance, but one fighter in particular seems to be wearing a costume we've never seen before:

We're not exactly sure what to make of this. It could be a mistaken leak of an upcoming alt Capcom has in the works, but we find it pretty hard to see this making it the Eleague main stage more than once. It also could be a rip from one of the many fan-made mods we've seen over the last year or so.

There was also a video during CYG|PR Balrog's promo.
