Today, Capcom announced a number of Street Fighter V costumes and stages that are bound to make you squirm with nostalgia and burn with the excitement of competition.

Announced on Capcom’s official blog, we learned of the classic stage and costumes that will be made available for download from Steam and PlayStation 4 on July 25 for $3.99 each.

First up in this downloadable content, we have Ryu’s 1991 temple roof stage, the iconic Suzaku Castle.

Next in this set of reveals is Street Fighter III’s Alex dressed in some pristine green trousers. As with all of the costumes announced for this set, Capcom asks that we note the outfit implies Street Fighter V takes place after Street Fighter III.

Then, we have Ibuki’s Street Fighter III outfit sans infinite shurikens, which Capcom considered was “for the greater good.”

As you may know, when Du “NuckleDu” Dang won the Capcom Cup in 2016, he also earned the opportunity to create a costume for the character of his choice. He chose to make an officer-inspired Guile!

Keep in mind that both of the Capcom Pro Tour 2017 downloads are available in the Premier Pass being sold for $24.99. However, the Premier Pass will no longer be available after November, so if you’re interested in getting everything offered from that pass, you’ll want to grab it soon.
