It may be hard to imagine nowadays, but there was a time when Vega was one of the absolute strongest characters in Street Fighter.

I'm speaking, of course, about his Street Fighter 2 days where the Shadaloo boss could frustrate foes to no end with cheap wall dives and overpowering reach.

Players can now take the vain Spaniard to the Flamenco Tavern for some nostalgic cage climbing, all the while sporting his original look.

Street Fighter 5 players will now be able to garner access to this classic style via the Fighting Chance lottery as developers have included Vega's SF2 outfit as their latest alternate costume.

Vega is technically the last of the four Shadaloo bosses to get his SF2 clothing as Balrog and Sagat both have nostalgia costumes already, and M. Bison has been wearing more or less the same exact clothes for over a quarter century now.

Check out the first glimpse at the new old look via the tweet from the official Street Fighter Twitter right here:
