Despite being one of the most popular characters in the game, Akuma rarely receives new costume support like Ryu and the ladies do, but today is apparently his lucky day for cosplay.

Akuma's new crossover costume for Garuda from Fighting EX Layer is now available to unlock in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition though you can't get everything for him until over a week from now.

As we saw with the previous four FEXL outfits added to the game, the Garuda attire can be acquired by simply completing one Extra Battle mission that only costs 500 FM to beat.

Upon achieving victory, players will have access to the new digs and its first eight colors with the final two being made available through special mission completion that typically requires winning ranked and casual online matches.

During previous times, these missions launched later the same week as the costumes, but Akuma's missions won't be available until January 21 to only give you about a week to do since the costume and the bonus requirements will leave the game after February 4.

With Capcom Cup only about a month away now, this may be the final update the game sees before finals though there'll certainly be one after once Dan and the Season 5 patch become available at some point next month.
