G becomes Skullomania with Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition's latest Fighting EX Layer crossover costume

Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is receiving another new crossover costume this week. Keeping with their Fighting EX Layer releases, the latest outfit will allow players to transform G into Skullomania.

The mission is set to go live starting tomorrow, December 8.

"You asked for it, we're delivering! G transforms into the skeleton-suited hero, Skullomania!" the official Street Fighter Twitter account writes. "Get this FIGHTING EX LAYER crossover costume via #SFV Extra Battle beginning Dec 8."

If you've missed out on the latest crossover costumes, you might have missed Street Fighter 5's updated way of unlocking these special looks. Previously, these unlockable digs were done so through a four-week process that prompted players to clear a mission each week at the expense of 2,500 Fight Money (per attempt).

The process has been streamlined heavily here in Champion Edition, seeing users only having to clear a single mission for 500 Fight Money (per attempt). You'll fight the character dressed up in their crossover costume, and defeating them will reward you with the alternate getup.

This initial mission unlocks colors 1 - 8 for the costume, and a set of follow up missions will go live later in the week that will allow you to grab colors 9 and 10. These missions have typically been "win 5 casual matches" and "win 5 ranked matches" with the character.

Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is slated to undergo server maintenance tomorrow, December 8, which we now know will make way for this new content. The game will be taken offline from 5 p.m. PT to 9 p.m. PT.
