SF5 Classic Ryu Stage Capcom

Evo 2017 is full swing at the moment. As expected, the fighting game community has gathered in unison to be in attendance.

Capcom may have canceled their planned panel for the event, but they still made sure to make some special Street Fighter 5 announcements. What makes all of these reveals even more hype is the fact that they’ll all be arriving on July 25. All of this content is set to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Street Fighter.

First up are throwback nostalgic costumes for Alex, Ibuki and Juri. The first two characters’ costumes are inspired by their Street Fighter 3 duds and Juri will once agin be sporting her Super Street Fighter 4 outfit. On top of all that, another old school stage is getting revived for the current era of Street Fighter – Ryu’s “Suzaku Castle” stage from Street Fighter 2. You can check out images of all that aforementioned DLC below (be sure to check out the sports-themed costumes at this link, too):

But wait – THERE’S MORE! Another Capcom Pro Tour stage is on the way and it looks amazing. The new “Ring of Pride” locale is a massive sumo stadium that’s been financed by the Karin’s Kanzuki family. Plus Guile is getting blessed with a special “Champion’s Costume” outfit that was specially designed by Capcom Cup 2016 winner Du “Liquid|NuckleDu” Dang. Take a peek at the new stage and costume in the pics posted below:
