It's been a minute since we've gotten any reveals about new content coming to Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition, but that streak has now ended with something fans are probably going to enjoy.

Capcom announced tonight Cyber-Akuma will be making his return to battle as a premium costume next week, and there's yet another outfit reveal on the horizon too.

Cyber-Akuma will be available starting September 21 where the mechanized menace is going to be included as part of the Season 5 Premium Pass.

What's more is Capcom also confirmed they'll have another costume announcement ready for players coming during the Street Fighter League Season 3 US Finals on Sept 16 though it's not said what it is.

Our best guess, however, is that the additional DLC outfit is going to be the final Capcom Pro Tour design that is typically saved for Capcom Cup winners... except there was no CC last year, so we don't really know what it will end up being exactly.

What is extra neat about this about this latest rendition of Cyber-Akuma is the fact that he actually does retain his giant metal wings, but they only extend outwards for certain attacks and animations as shown in the trailer.

Cyber Akuma, not to be confused with the giant mech Zero Akuma from Cyberbots, first appeared in Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter as the final boss where he's gone on to show up as an alternate costume in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 too.

For those who do not own the Premium Pass, SF5's next costume will set you back $3.99 USD like most other DLC outfits in the game.
