Capcom announces upcoming Extra Battle schedule for Street Fighter 5 including Ryu's Jin costume and a Shadaloo soldier that can only be fought once

We've been seeing some strange occurrences when it comes to how Capcom is handling Fight Money in Season 4 of Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. The weekly missions have been reduced to a mere fraction of what they used to offer while Extra Battle attempts against Shadaloo Soldiers have been diminished from 3 to 1.

It seems that Capcom will be continuing this trend. In a blog update on the CFN (translation by Dakota 'DarkHorse' Hills), it was revealed that the next Silver Shadaloo battle for experience will only permit one attempt. This event will begin on January 25th and will end on the 28th.

We'll be able to get access to Ryu's Jin Saotome crossover costume starting on January 18th. Remember that you'll have to collect the four gems throughout four weeks in order to complete the set.

This Friday, we'll finally be able to complete that Mech Abigail costume with the fourth and final gem. Of course, this is assuming you kept up with the Extra Battle fights and collected the previous three gems.

In the event that you still have some salt leftover from the battle against Shadow Nash, an opportunity to rematch the AI opponent will begin on January 11th and will be available until the 14th. Remember that each fight will cost you 1,000 FM but you'll only get a title for the first victory and 100 experience for every success after that.

Finally, we'll still be able to gamble Fight Money for the chance to acquire cheaper Fortune Tickets throughout the coming weeks. Oddly, there's no information regarding costumes that will come after Mech Abigail.
