To the online skies we go

Capcom's certainly been shaking things up with their recent crossover costume releases in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition from how much Fight Money players need to spend to how extra colors are obtained.

Karin's special Hokuto costume from Fighting EX Layer hit SF5 last week though it didn't come complete with all of the colors. That's no longer the case, however, as the final unlock missions are now available.

As was similarly the case with Ryu's Kairi outfit, players will need to hop into the online modes and rack up some wins with the Kanzuki martial arts master.

Winning five ranked matches with Karin will nab users Hokuto color 9 while color 10 can be unlocked by being victorious in five casual matches with the character.

These missions can be completed until November 5, 2020, so there's a decent amount of time to get around to them — and maybe that's about the time we could see a new one announced for SF5 should Capcom and Arika wish to keep the momentum going.

To unlock the costume in the first place, players simply need to complete one mission in Extra Battle mode for a measly 500 FM which is a lot nicer than the previous system for crossover costumes that required four weeks of missions totaling 10,000 FM.

You can check out the missions available below along with how colors 9 and 10 look. The first eight options and the Easter egg variant can be viewed here.
