Capcom gives out a unique distinction and prize to the winner of Capcom Cup every year besides a large sum of money, as they give the champion the chance to design their own Street Fighter 5 costume to which GGP|Kazunoko and Ghost|NuckleDu have done in years prior.

We had been waiting for months to see what 2017's Capcom Cup champion, RISE|MenaRD, would design as his 'Champion's Choice Costume' for his signature character Birdie in Street Fighter 5, but now we need to wait no longer.

Capcom had previously teased the new Birdie costume though now they have decided to show off the full design looking very much like the Capcom Cup champion himself. The British world warrior finds himself dressed in his normal black vest over what appears to be a Rise eSports jersey, brown pants and sneakers.

The Easter egg variant even appears to give Birdie MenaRD's hairstyle with the longer top and short sides. Birdie also wears a chain necklace that says "RD" and his chains feature the Capcom Cup trophy on the end.

This new Champion's Choice costume will be available to those who have purchased the Capcom Pro Tour 2018 DLC for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition which also includes new costumes for Akuma and Sakura plus the Ring of Power stage.

There is no release date set currently though Capcom notes it will be releasing soon for the Premier Pass which costs $19.99 USD. Capcom also states that the 2017 CPT DLC will also go back on sale in time for EVO though it is currently not on the PlayStation Store yet. You can check out the costume for yourself in the gallery below.
