As some had previously predicted / hoped, another Fighting EX Layer costume is about to drop in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition with one of the most fitting additions yet.

The Japanese Street Fighter Community page recently released some new and additional screenshots for Akuma's Garuda outfit for an even more detailed look at all of his glowing bits.

Both Akuma's skin and hair have a nice lava-like that looks to have a burning visual effect though not nearly as distracting as Gill's Pyron crossover costume.

The new collection of screenshots shows Akuma's default stance, red fireball startup, throw and Raging Demon which goes great with the footage of seeing him in motion yesterday.

Said footage also appeared to show a potentially big nerf is also seemingly incoming for one of the demon's best combo options though we don't know if the balance change is dropping with the costume or if we'll need to wait until after Capcom Cup next month.

Akuma's Garuda costume will release later tonight following server maintenance while the missions to unlock his last two colors will go live later in the week.
