Data-miner X-Kira suggests Rival Schools-themed costumes and new ways to earn Fight Money are coming to Street Fighter 5

Rival Schools as a series has been long dormant due to no new titles releasing in the 18 years since Project Justice, but former director Hideaki Itsuno would love to make a new entry in the franchise though he is currently hard at work with Devil May Cry 5.

Some characters from Rival Schools have already made cameo appearances in Street Fighter 5's Kanzuki Beach stage, and it appears that more may be on the way... likely only as costumes, however.

Data-miner X-Kira recently shared a few images of Batsu and Kyosuke from the Rival Schools series which seem to suggest that they will also be coming to Street Fighter 5 as crossover costumes like the recent Resident Evil outfits.

The leaker also states that Capcom will be adding a new way to earn Fight Money in Street Fighter 5 by rewarding players for playing the game and getting into matches for set amounts of time in online or offline sessions though you'll need to be connected to the server.

He also further expanded upon his previous claim that NPCs will be playable in versus mode in the future by specifically saying that the Shadaloo Dolls along with Ancient Necalli, Phantom Bison, Shadow Nash, Shadow Lady Chun-Li, The Master Ryu and more will all be available to use in the mode.

As always, none of this is official or confirmed, so this information should be taken with a grain of salt. You can check out X-Kira's latest Tweets in the gallery below.
