Capcom has just announced another Street Fighter 5 Extra Battle crossover costume. This time, fans will be able to transform Zeku into Kenji from Red Earth.

The campaign for this outfit begins on April 12th and will run until May 10th.

Street Fighter 5 recently saw the addition of its first Red Earth costume — Alex dressing as Leo — by way of Extra Battle. Now Zeku brings another nostalgic look into the fold.

Zeku's new costume will act as a bit of a two-for-one, as he will sport a different Kenji look for both Old and Young forms. In addition to the costume, there will be Red Earth background music that you'll be able to acquire in Extra Battle.

"The Red Earth nostalgia continues with the Kenji Extra Battle costume for Zeku," the official Street Fighter Twitter page wrote. "Go from the 38th Grandmaster of Bushinryu to a top level assassin when this costume & accompanying soundtrack appear from April 12th till May 10th."

When it comes to Extra Battle costumes, players have to complete four missions over the course of four weeks in order to unlock the new outfit. Each week, there will be a challenge that costs 2,500 FM per attempt, and successfully finishing each will reward you with one piece of the costume.

Acquiring all four pieces of the costume over that four-week period will net you access to it, and you'll have to finish all four in order to get it. Make sure you don't miss any weeks if you want these new digs.

Kenji is one of the four main characters in Capcom's 2D arcade fighter, Red Earth. He is a ninja and the leader of a squadron of warriors called upon by the shogun to intercept an army of invading alien airships.

This fighter also appeared as a playable character in Capcom Fighting Evolution.
