Air Man and Devil May Cry costumes, Survival mode changes coming to Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition

Cody and more goodies available a day early on June 25th, new Fighting Chance (loot box) mode

With the announcement of Devil May Cry 5 at E3 2018, Capcom revealed costumes from that franchise would be making their way to Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition.

Ken will receive a Dante outfit, along with Ed (Nero), and Laura (Gloria). Also, Rashid will be getting an absolutely sick Air Man costume from Mega Man 2. Using the Easter Egg code will equip Ken with Gilgamesh, a set of armor. The same code removes Ed's jacket to reveal his whole Devil Bringer arm.

Laura's Gloria costume is the Extra Battle mode outfit for July 5th through August 2nd. Using the Easter Egg code with Laura's new DMC outfit will replace Gloria's hair with Laura's normal locks. Rashid's Air Man costume will be the next Extra Battle mode outfit, after Laura.

Cody will come packaged a number of these new features listed below — a day earlier than initially planned, June 25, 2018.

Capcom is also updating the game's Survival Mode, adding new features like progress saving, and consumable items. We've outlined all of these new additions below.

Menat will also showcase her fortune telling capabilities in Fighting Chance, which seems to be a loot box feature, with a number of cosmetic accessories and things to help you through Survival Mode available.

Survival Mode changes

Street Fighter 5's brutal Survival Mode will see a number of updates added to it:

• Battle goods (consumable items to aid you).
• The ability to continue, after losing, by spending 1,000 Fight Money.
• When continuing, you start with full health, EX Gauge, and V-Gauge.
• Saving your progress after clearing a stage.
• Standard or random select for opponents.
• Random select still keeps the same 'boss' characters every 10 fights.
• Random will expand the characters you face beyond the launch roster.
• Unused V-Gauge will now transfer over between stages.

Fighting Chance (loot boxes)

This is a brand new mode, hosted by Menat, which offers all sorts of different goodies. It costs 500 Fight Money to try it out. Menat will read your fortune, and this appears to be similar to loot box functions in other games. Here's are things you can win, note some are exclusive to the Fighting Chance mode:

• Battle Goods for Survival Mode.
• Unique colors only obtainable in Fighting Chance.
• Rare costumes only obtainable in Fighting Chance.
• Cammy’s Cannon Spike is one of these costumes (pictured below).
• More costumes will be added in over time.
• Classic pieces of Street Fighter art from across the series.

Upon logging in after the June 25th update, you'll receive one Fantasy Fortune Reading from Menat for free.
