It's officially now April 1 in Japan which means that everyone should be extra wary of announcements, but also that we get another free Street Fighter mini-game to play around with.

Capcom has released its new April Fool's Day game for Street Fighter 5, Neco Drop 2, a sequel to the previous entry featuring Season 5's characters turned into adorable cats along with a story mode and more goodies.

Like the first Neco Drop, the new game tasks players to complete puzzle games to collect feline versions of the world warrior cast with Dan, Rose, Oro and Akira joining the ranks along with maybe some bonus cats this time around.

There's a story mode available in the sequel too which has the player themselves transformed into a cat with Lucia and Oro seemingly trying to help turn them back into a human.

Items have also been added to help make the challenges a bit easier than last time, and players can even bet cat food on actual rounds of Street Fighter 5 to earn more on their journey.

This is the fifth game in Capcom's April Fool's line of web browser games for SF5 with a card game, shoot 'em up featuring G and a quiz game that no longer appear to be available.

The new cat designs were actually shown off last year following the Summer Update by SF5 Director Takayuki Nakayama, who seems to have put together all of the adorable kitties himself.

Neco Drop 2 can be played for a limited time on the Shadaloo CRI website on both phones and PC. Progress seems to carry over even if you refresh the page, so let us know if you find any interesting secrets hidden within that story mode.
