Update: We've added an additional screenshot of Kage's upcoming Vajra Asura costume which you can take a look at after the jump.

Asura's Wrath is certainly an interesting and unique title in Capcom's back catalog that's already crossed over with Street Fighter in the past, and now it finds its way back to the fighting game franchise again.

Capcom revealed today that the next crossover costume coming to Street Fighter 5 will be in the form of Vajra Asura for Kage with missions beginning later this month.

Asura's Vajra form is a fighting transformation of the titular character in his game where his arms become coated in gold making them hardened for battle.

Asura actually crossed paths with Street Fighter characters before in some of Asura's Wrath's DLC including boss battles against Ryu / Evil Ryu and Akuma / Oni back in the PlayStation 3 era.

This announcement comes just a few days after Capcom also announced the 2019 Halloween bundle for SF5 featuring new costumes for Poison and E. Honda plus another spooky-themed stage.

Balrog also just had a new costume shown off for him as well being a no top variant of his default attire coming to the game's Fighting Chance mode

Extra Battle missions will begin for Vajra Asura on September 27 and run though October 24 once Cody's first crossover costume in Devil May Cry's Vergil finishes up its run.
