Earlier today, WSO Sessions was streaming Blanka's gameplay in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. While this initially started off with both players using Blanka, they eventually went back to the character select screen to switch things up.

It was at this point where they decided to show off Ken's upcoming Monster Hunter Rathalos armor. Remember it will be possible to obtain this costume via the game's Extra Battle mode.

The first challenge to start unlocking the icons needed for the alternate will begin on February 27, 2018. Each attempt will require a participation fee of 2,500 fight money.

You'll want to start saving up your fight money if you want all three of the Monster Hunter costumes. Assuming you beat the AI without any failures, it will run cost 30,000 FM in total.

If you are on the fence about whether or not you want the outfit, you should have a look at Ken in action while wearing it. During the stream, they opted to use color #2, which is blue.

Despite carrying a giant weapon, everything about the armor is purely cosmetic. Check it out:
