Pumpkin spice everything has made it out in full force marking the official start of the modern Halloween season, and Street Fighter 5 is kicking off the early festivities with some brand new Halloween content.

Two of the newest roster members, E. Honda and Poison, will soon be donning some spooky new threads as we all have been suspecting. You can view the official video reveal below.

Netting, whips, and leather are the name of the game for Poison as she becomes an undead version of herself, transforming into something of a punk or goth zombie.

E. Honda takes a little bit lighter of a route and assumes his traditional role as Street Fighter's "turtle" in a more literal sense. Capcom notes in their reveal tweet that this costume is a "Kappa," which is a kind of river monster from Japanese folklore, or in other words, a perfect fit for this character.

Joining the Underground Arena in terms of spooky makeovers is the Union Station. A familiar "Happy Halloween" sign graces the top of the ticketing booth as the station usually meant to transport bodies becomes a graveyard now meant to transport souls.

All of this content will be made available on September 17 with each costume costing $3.99 and the stage update running players either $1.99 or 40,000 Fight Money. You can view the reveal right here:
