Update: Street Fighter 5's servers are now live and the new costumes are now available.

More sets of costumes are making their way to Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition which means that servers will be going down shortly to prepare for the incoming content for the fighting game.

Capcom states that servers should go offline at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT today, November 27th, and will be unavailable until 5 p.m. PDT / 8 p.m. EDT when the new outfits will become available to purchase or acquire.

First for the three sets of costumes coming tonight will be the new holiday pack for 2018 which features many of the Season 3's new fighters wearing Santa Claus / reindeer-themed clothing for Cody, Sakura, Falke and Blanka.

There are also three new crossover outfits making their way to SF5 featuring Resident Evil characters for the first time in the game. Urien becomes Resident Evil's long time antagonist Albert Wesker, Cammy becomes the original title's Jill Valentine and Kolin gets Ada Wong's Resident Evil 6 look.

Classic M. Bison will also be available this evening via Street Fighter 5's Fighting Chance random drawing system to replace Nash's Cannon Spike costume for players trying to test their luck and put their Fight Money on the line.

Each new holiday and Resident Evil costume will cost players $3.99 USD though no new costume bundles have been revealed as of yet for those looking to save a little money by purchasing them all. You can check out all of the new costumes coming to Street Fighter 5 in the gallery below.
