Balrog's Guts Man costume campaign has come to an end in Street Fighter 5 making room for one of the series' most beloved underdogs, so that he could get his time in the spotlight.

Alex's Leo crossover outfit from Red Earth now has its first mission available to play in SF5's Extra Battle mode along with some new tunes and the finale of four returning costumes.

For the standard price of 2,500 Fight Money, players can unlock the first of four costume pieces for Alex's first crossover meaning those looking to unlock it will need to come back for three more weeks and spend a total of at least 10,000 FM to use it in actual matches.

Leo's theme from the oft forgotten Capcom fighter Red Earth is also now available in Extra Battle for 1,000 FM though that cost can't even be recuperated by this week's missions considering they only pay out 850 FM total.

This week also marks the final week players can get their hands on the four Mech costumes for Juri, F.A.N.G, Abigail and Zangief before needing to pull out the real money to acquire them. These returning costume pieces will set players back 2,000 FM for each piece.

While we won't get to try out the costume for ourselves for almost a month, some modders and data-miners have already messed around with the Alex's new mane, so you can take a look at his colors and Easter egg variant for the costume below.
