Here are all colors and special Easter egg alteration for Hokuto Karin in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

Karin Kanzuki's new Street Fighter 5 outfit is now officially available as players can access her Fighting Layer EX Hokuto costume by spending 500 Fight Money to face off with and defeat a fairly easy computer controlled opponent.

We've rounded up images of Hokuto Karin in as she sports all 10 of her various costume colors, and have also included an example of what she looks like when you input the special Easter egg code to alter the garb just a bit.

There appears to be something of a FEXL trend emerging for Street Fighter 5 right now as the previous Extra Battle costume addition also involved combination with a FEXL character: Ryu as Kairi.

Similar to Kairi Ryu, Hokuto Karin requires only a single bout and a fraction of the cost of previous Extra Battle costumes. Users used to have to fork over a total of 10,000 Fight Money over the course of four weeks to gain access to such outfits in the past.

We nabbed colors 1-8 as those are all unlocked immediately upon winning the Extra Battle challenge, but nabbed screen shots of colors 9 and 10 from the Shadaloo CRI site as you'll have to score some wins with Karin online before you'll gain access to those.

Check out Karin's new look via the gallery below. The very first color sees her with the Easter egg code inputted and essentially reverts the character halfway back to regular Karin by omitting certain details and pieces of the costume. The final image gives you a look at Hokuto Karin on the character select screen.
