Breath of Fire 2 Extra Battle crossover costume coming to Street Fighter 5, free trial of the game beginning April 23

Hot off the heels of the Capcom Home Arcade announcement, Capcom has unveiled some news for Street Fighter 5. A free trial of the game will be starting soon, there's a new Extra Battle crossover costume en route, and a few sales for various costumes have all been announced.

First up, Extra Battle will see a new Breath of Fire 2 crossover costume soon. With it, Falke will be transformed into Katt.

"From May 10 to June 7 in Extra Battle Mode, Capcom is teaming up these two heroines for a crossover costume featuring the beloved role-playing classic originally published in 1994," Capcom Unity writes. "Both Falke and Katt expertly wield staves in battle, and both know guys named Ryu (different dudes) – what match could be more perfect?"

During that four week period, players will be able to complete four missions (one each week) in order to unlock the full Katt costume. Each attempt will run you 2,500 Fight Money, so you can grab the costume for 10,000 FM total — if you beat each mission on the first try.

Additionally, the free trial of Street Fighter 5 will start on April 23 at 1 p.m. PST (download begins at 9 a.m. PST) / April 24 at 12 a.m. UTC and will run through May 5 PST / May 6 at 5 p.m. UTC. There will be various modes available with this trial, and it will be live for both PlayStation 4 and PC users.

PS4 users will not need a PS Plus subscription to access the free trial for offline play, but a sub is required if you intend to access any of the demo's online modes. On PC, those who are looking to try the game out will need to have the Steam client download and installed.

All of the initial content found in the original version of Street Fighter 5 and all modes brought in with Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition will be available in this free trial.

The 16 launch characters will be playable in the demo, which includes the likes of Ryu, Chun-Li, Ken, M. Bison, Necalli, Laura, and more. Additionally, four DLC characters will be accessible: Akuma, Blanka, Juri and Menat. These four characters will only be available in Ranked, Casual, Battle Lounge, Training, and Challenges.

If you already own Street Fighter 5, but haven't purchased those four DLC fighters, you will also be able to try them out during the trial period. Any progress you make with them will be retained if you purchase them during the demo period.
