After releasing a mock-up video of what Street Fighter’s V long rumored Arcade Mode may look like, infamous dataminer X-Kira has made another video, examining the files of the game’s recent update to reveal more content that will be coming to the game in the future.

To begin, he notes that in addition to Zeku, who will complete the title’s Season 2 roster, several Premium Costumes are in the works. Specifically, there will be:

  • Eight costumes for Chun-Li
  • Seven for Kolin
  • Five for Karin
  • Three for Ryu, Ken, Rashid, R. Mika, Balrog and Akuma
  • Two for M. Bison, Zangief, Nash, Vega and Laura
  • One for Cammy, Alex and Birdie

Moving on to the topic of additional DLC Stages, X-Kira states that Birdie’s Street Fighter Alpha 2 stage will be making a return, along with a brand new Russia stage for Kolin, similar to what can be seen in her official character artwork. Ed will receive a Neo Shadaloo stage, Menat will get an Egyptian themed stage, R. Mika will have her own wrestling ring and F.A.N.G’s unique stage will be themed around the Nguuhao cartel.

Urien’s stage will be based off the Olmec Ruins stage from Third Strike, Ken’s is based off his stage from Street Fighter II while Nash will receive a remake of his Alpha 2 stage. The iconic Grassy Field stage from Street Fighter Alpha 2 is also set to return. Sadly, no word on the return of Dhalsim, Zangief or Chun-Li’s classic Street Fighter II stages.

Lastly, X-Kira claims that Extra Battle, Dojo and Dramatic Battle — most recently seen in Ultra Street Fighter II and the Street Fighter Alpha series — will be making a return. He also notes that a Street Fighter III: Third Strike BGM Pack, similar to the Street Fighter II Music Pack that was released earlier this week will be on the way soon, with many of the rumored costumes arriving as early as next month.

These are all certainly intriguing developments that paint a very bright picture for the overall future of Street Fighter V. Of this leaked content, which part excites you the most?
