Data-miner X-Kira claims Shadow Lady from Marvel vs. Capcom and even more Resident Evil costumes will be coming to Street Fighter 5

I still can't believe they gave Wesker to Urien over Nash...

Reported information from data-miners and leakers should always be taken with a grain of salt, but X-Kira's track record has been spot on in recent months after correctly posting about a number of costumes and modes that have made it into Street Fighter 5.

This week's new holiday costumes for the Season 3 cast plus the Resident Evil costumes for Cammy, Urien and Kolin were all leaked months ago by X-Kira along with the previous Mech F.A.N.G and Juri outfits as well as the addition of Dojo Mode to the game.

After posting that Nemesis and William Birkin costumes will be coming to Street Fighter 5 next year, X-Kira also tweeted that even more Resident Evil crossovers are on the way with Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Claire Redfield are also in development — which wouldn't be too surprising given Resident Evil 2's remake launching in early 2019.

Alongside the Resident Evil postings, the avid data-miner also stated that Shadow Lady will be an upcoming Extra Battle boss / costume. Shadow Lady is actually a brainwashed Chun-Li who is under the control of Shadaloo, and she first appeared in the original Marvel vs. Capcom game though a similar fighter was also part of the Street Fighter 2 V anime. She even has her own entry on the Shadaloo CRI website.

A new offline mode may also reportedly be in the works which could let players use the NPC characters in SF5 in versus matches like the Shadaloo Dolls, Decapre and maybe even everyone's favorite policeman, Peter.

Again, none of this is official, so it should be taken with a grain of salt even with his recent hot streak. You can check out X-Kira's latest posts in the gallery below.
