Red Bull Kumite and other events have been a strong part of the growing eSports scene within the fighting game community for a few years now, and it appears we have more cross-promotion coming our way.

As part of a special promotion going on in Japan, Red Bull will be giving away Street Fighter 5 costumes once again including new looks for Sagat, Lucia and E. Honda plus some other really cool Kumite-themed gear.

Potential players will earn sweepstakes entries for buying cans of Red Bull at Lawson convenience stores in Japan beginning on October 15 which will enter them in drawings for physical merch or digital goods.

Buying four cans will guarantee shoppers will receive a code for a Street Fighter 5 costume on PlayStation 4 though it appears to be a random drawing of the new three looks plus the original 16 outfits from 2017 for Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Karin, Zangief, Guile, Balrog, R. Mika, Laura, Nash, Vega, M. Bison, Rashid, Akuma and Kolin.

There will also be be Street Fighter can openers given away to 500 people of Ryu, Sagat, Rashid or Guile plus 200 will win a Red Bull Kumite headset and the grand prize of Kumite gaming chairs will be awarded to 10 lucky individuals.

No word on a western release for the three new Red Bull costumes have been revealed at this time, but we can rest assured that they're probably coming over here too considering we already got the first set along with some cool Street Fighter-themed cans.
