Another classic stage is almost here (finally!), along with three new Premium outfits.

Amidst the madness of April Fool’s Day, Capcom held their Street Fighter panel at WonderCon 2017 yesterday; it was confirmed that the long-awaited Street Fighter II Thailand stage that was first announced months ago (M. Bison’s, not Sagat’s!), is bound for Street Fighter V at the end of April.

The photo below from WonderCon (and the feature image above) show some of the stage and its details, though these are work-in-progress images.

Those that visited the CFN Portal site on April Fool’s Day got to see a new “Street Fighter Academy” quiz minigame, which featured new outfits for Chun-Li, Ryu, and Juri as different anime school character archetypes. It was also revealed at WonderCon that these costumes are indeed coming to Street Fighter V as future DLC, but no release date has been indicated yet.
