Cracking open a Red Bull next month can get you some in-game Street Fighter V swag.
Red Bull already has big plans to mark the 30th Anniversary of Street Fighter with all the goodies they have planned for Red Bull Battle Grounds, but that’s not all they have on the way to mark the occasion. Starting on November 1st, Red Bull will release special edition Street Fighter cans of their energy drink, decorated with the likenesses of Chun-Li, Guile, Ken, Ryu, and Zangief.
The cans feature not only Street Fighter V character art, but each will have codes under the tab that can be redeemed for in-game content (such as Red Bull skins) on the PlayStation 4 version of the game. A scan-to-unlock Snapcode on the can will reveal unique Street Fighter filters tied to the specific character on the can, with one can unlocking an interactive lens. You can redeem multiple codes, and they will be valid to redeem until next April.
The cans will be available in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Ireland, Spain, Germany, and Italy, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for these cans in those regions next month. Head over to Red Bull’s Street Fighter page for more info as it arises.
[UPDATE: The cans are appearing “in the wild” now — and Cammy and Akuma cans have also been spotted, indicating that at least seven character cans are available, not just the five mentioned in the initial press release.]
