Capcom has announced that its iconic Thailand stage is coming to Street Fighter V in a remastered guise. It will also be joined by some new threads.
The stage will be released on April 25th at a cost of $3.99 / ￥400 / €3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money.
The developer wrote, “The Thailand Stage is where we all first met M. Bison, the evil dictator and head of Shadaloo, in Street Fighter II.
“The stage’s intricate bell and statues have been carefully recreated in SFV with great detail, as well as the stage’s memorable theme.”
Premium school costumes will also be available on the 25th, costing $3.99 / ￥400 / €3.99 each.
These are, in Capcom’s own words:
“Ryu’s costume is based on a stereotypical Japanese Bancho (student gang leader) with direct input from a team member who actually used to wear clothes like this when he was younger. The lining on his coat depicts a faceoff between a Dragon and a Tiger.”
“Keeping with the atmosphere of her origin, Chun-Li’s costume represents her as an Honor Roll student. She only has the highest standards for herself and always aims to be the top of her class.”
“As you can see, Juri really pulls off the black lipstick and nails. The team had a lot of fun creating a Gothic schoolgirl look for her. We especially love the spider on the back of her jacket!”
