X-Kira's data mining suggests that Easter egg codes will be added to currently existing costumes via Fighting Chance

Kolin, Menat, Balrog, Vega, M. Bison, Ed, and Zeku will supposedly gain additional Easter egg codes

Some costumes in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition can be made to look a little different than normal thanks to an Easter egg code. This is done by holding light punch, medium punch, heavy punch, light kick, and up at the character select screen or between rounds of a match.

Other costumes... simply can't do this. You just have to know which costumes allow for this and which don't.

According to the data miner known as X-Kira, there are apparently plans to add Easter egg codes to a number of costumes that currently don't have them. Supposedly, these must be obtained through the game's "Fighting Chance" mode.

For those that are unaware, Fighting Chance is very similar to a typical loot box system but it only accepts Fight Money as a currency. Through Menat's crystal ball readings, a player may obtain colors, costumes, titles, and more.

An image of a shirtless Ed facing away from the camera was posted by X-Kira. This appears to be Ed's battle outfit 1. On his back, we can clearly see his Shadaloo tattoo.

Notably, X-Kira mentioned a number of characters that he was able to spot in the code that will supposedly get Easter egg codes in the future. Not only are characters getting these for alternates, but also the default costumes.
