We got a gander at Zeku's upcoming Kenji costume a few weeks ago as Street Fighter 5 continues their crossover outfits from Capcom's Red Earth fighting title that dropped all the way back in 1996.

Today Capcom released the first video footage of this Kenji outfit as it seen in Street Fighter 5 action. As is the norm with these crossover costumes, players will need to participate in Extra Battle bouts for four weeks in a row to get their hands on this one.

Each week players will need to spend 5,000 Fight Money to face off against a computer-controlled Kenji Zeku and if successful, (these fights have always been traditionally very easy to win) they'll be rewarded with one of four gems. Collecting all four of said gems will unlock this attire for Zeku.

The campaign begins on April 12th and will run until May 10th. Should you miss obtaining any of these gems for any reason, Capcom has offered second opportunities for such costumes usually after a month or two have passed.

This particular alternate technically comes with two distinct looks simply because of Zeku's multi-form nature. His old form appears with the standard Kenji costume while his young form dons a large hat as the most obvious visual distinction.
