Capcom has announced new preorder costumes for Cammy, Chun-Li, M. Bison and Ryu for “Street Fighter V.” The highly anticipated fighter will also come with a collector’s edition for those who want to pre-order it. Prior to the announcement, the only preorder bonus that was available was the ability to participate in the official “Street Fighter V” beta tests, which did not fare too well after numerous online problems.
The preorder “Battle Costumes” revealed in the Capcom Unity Blog are only available through specific retailers in the United States. The Battle Costume for Ryu is only available through preorders from GameStop. Fans, who want the Battle Costumes for Cammy, Chun-Li and M. Bison, will have to preorder through Best Buy, Amazon and digital stores to get them.
It will be interesting to see if fans can unlock these costumes by simply playing the game. Earlier this year, Capcom made headlines when the publisher announced that all of the game’s downloadable content (DLC) would be attainable through simply playing the game. Whether these Battle Costumes are part of that or are exclusive to those, who will preorder it, has yet to be revealed.
Meanwhile, Gematsu has revealed the contents of the “Street Fighter V” Collector’s Edition. This edition comes with the main game, a fully painted statue of Ryu, a 48-page art book and three code cards. These code cards will allow fans to check out the game’s soundtrack, the Capcom Fighters Twitch channel and the comic books from UDON. Every version of the game will come with the Capcom Fighters Twitch subscription.
Based on previous reports of the fighting game, it seems like “Street Fighter V” might be one of the most content-filled fighters to date. After listening to fans who did not like that there were multiple versions of “Street Fighter IV,” the company stated that fans would only need the original “Street Fighter V’ disc to get everything.
“Street Fighter V” will be released in spring 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and the PC.
