Mega Man and Roll Crossover Costumes for Ryu and Sakura slide into Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on February 26th

Plus: Zangief gets a Luchador mask in Menat’s Fighting Chance!

Even more Crossover Costumes are sliding their way into Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, as the latest blog post from Capcom-Unity reveals that Ryu will be receiving a Mega Man Crossover Costume, while Sakura will gain her first such outfit by donning the attire of Roll Caskett from Mega Man Legends. You’ll be able to turn these Shotokan brawlers into super fighting robots on February 26th, which each Premium attire setting you back $3.99.

Additionally, though Mech Zangief, Mech F.A.N.G, Mech Juri, and Mech Abigail are returning to Extra Battle for a second showdown, if you’d prefer to save your Fight Money, you can purchase the four — alongside Jin Saotome Ryu and his Theme from Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and Cyberbots — in the new “Robot Bundle” for $9.99.

Finally, Alex isn’t the only grappler getting some new duds, as the next Fighting Chance Costume will be for Zangief, as he’ll be donning a luchador mask in a (fairly minimal) effort to conceal his identity, becoming “The Gief.” You’ll be able to try your luck at getting this outfit from Menat’s fortune readings starting February 26th. You can see more detailed descriptions of the outfits — as well as screenshots and a trailer, where they battle Guts Man Balrog and Air Man Rashid in a Dojo full of E-Tanks — below.

Mega Man for Ryu (Mega Man) – Mega Man needs no introduction, as the Blue Bomber and hero of 20XX is just as iconic as Ryu. In fact, if you look really closely, a charged Mega Buster shot almost resembles a Hadoken, making this costume a perfect fit for Ryu! This costume is available for purchase for MSRP $3.99.


Roll for Sakura (Mega Man) – Those familiar with the Mega Man series are probably familiar with Roll, Mega Man’s “little sister” and Dr. Light’s assistant. In the Mega Man Legends games, Roll Caskett is a different character entirely – a genius mechanic and best friend of Mega Man Volnutt who’s searching for a grand treasure. This costume is available for purchase for MSRP $3.99.


Leo for Alex (Red Earth) – Leo is one of four playable characters in Red Earth, a Capcom fighting game series first released in 1996. As the king of Greedia, Leo was cursed to become half-lion half-man by unknown invaders. He has now accepted his fate and holds this curse as a symbol of strength. This costume is available in Extra Battle Mode starting March 15! During this time, you can also obtain Leo’s Theme to be used as background music.



The Gief – He wants to be a bit more humble and hide his true identity in the ring with a mask. But let’s face it, it’s not hard to figure out who’s behind the mask. This costume is available in Fighting Chance on February 26!



Robot Bundle – Keep those circuits going, because we’re putting the previous robotic-themed costumes from Extra Battle Mode into a shiny new bundle for a limited time. The Robot Bundle is available for $9.99 and includes Mech Zangief, Mech F.A.N.G, Mech Juri, Mech Abigail, the Jin Saotome costume, and the Cyberbots background music.


That seems to wrap things up for the upcoming February update to SFVAE. Are you looking forward to grabbing any of these new costumes? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!

Anthem Review: Here We Go Again

With so many disastrous launches for looter shooters (and other live service games) over the past few years, surely Anthem would learn from the mistakes from its peers and not subject players excited for the game to yet another redemption arc. Right?
