Akuma's Garuda crossover costume colors and Easter egg variant for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition

Characters from Fighting EX Layer (or Street Fighter EX) have been making their way into Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition as costumes. We previously saw the release of Kairi, Hokuto, Blair Dame and Skullomania for Ryu, Karin, Cammy and G respectively.

Now it's Akuma's turn to get a costume that pays homage to one of Arika's Fighting EX Layer characters. Since Akuma's Garuda costume has been made available earlier today, we've taken the time to collect images showcasing Akuma with his new threads.

Akuma as Garuda is encased in samurai armor. This is befitting for Akuma since he's strict about following a personal code with regards to fighting, much like a samurai.

The parts of the hair and body that protrude from the samurai armor are radiating a glow. The color of this glow is based on the colors chosen by the player, though it's limited to variants of red or blue.

By inputting the Easter egg code, Akuma looks like his old self. Of course, Akuma is still wearing Garuda's armor with this code inputted.

To perform the Easter egg code, simply hold light punch, medium punch, heavy punch, light kick and up at the character select screen. Remember that this can also be done between rounds.
