Street Fighter 5's weekly rewards have been updated, and thus there are some new ways to both gain and spend Fight Money.

We know that there will not be a traditional Season Pass for whatever DLC Capcom brings to SF5 this year, and so players may have a bit of extra incentive to build up their in game currency for any and all new fighters that might be joining the roster.

Starting this week, players can fork over 2,500 FM to face off against Guts Man Balrog in a "very easy" bout. If successful, they'll earn one of four gems needed to obtain the costume for themselves.

Those who maintain this process over the next four weeks will get this original Mega Man baddie attire. There's also a Middle Class Shadaloo Grunt battle available for 500 FM.

The difficulty is "normal" and players will get a reward of 2,500 FM (a net gain of 2,000 FM) for defeating him. This battle can be attempted only once.

You'll see what the Guts Man looks like in motion thanks to the clip below. Observe as he pulls off a handful of specials as well as his Gigaton Blow Critical Art while a fairly familiar tune plays in the background:
