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

Ryu has a shiny new crossover costume in Street Fighter 5 and we've done the dirty work of collecting it along with all colors (save for colors nine and ten, which we'll discuss shortly) so you can see what the franchise's poster boy looks like in his new threads.

Though it's been almost a year since Capcom has rolled out a new Extra Battle costume, they've now rolled out a Kairi (most recently of Fighting Layer EX fame) look for Ryu. The process for getting your hands on him has been heavily expedited relative to previous Extra Battles, but you'll have to jump through an extra hoop or two to get his final colors.

First and foremost, we're incredibly thankful that developers decided to switch things up when it comes to earning Extra Battle costumes. Instead of having to spend 2,500 FM once a week for four weeks (forget one and you'll have to wait around until the next campaign for the costume you're gunning for) you can now spend a mere 500 for one fight and then immediately gain access.

As such we were able to very quickly get the Kairi costume along with colors 1-8, but to get the final two you'll have to play and win five ranked and five casual matches with Ryu. Checking each of these boxes will get you colors 9 and 10, but we're not good enough to win that much with Ryu and we care too much about League Points so you'll have to settle for snapshots from the Shadaloo CRI page.

That said, we do have something you won't find on the CRI page, and that's the Easter egg variation for this costume. We entered the code (hold LP+MP+HP+LK+UP as the fight loads) and found that it changes Ryu's head back to his default look.

You can see this performed for color 1 and you'll see the standard versions of the rest of the colors in the following images. Let us know what you think of Kairi Ryu and Capcom's fresh approach to Extra Battles in the comments below.
