With the release of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition just around the corner, Capcom has put together a quick summary of some of the things that are coming to the update over at Capcom-Unity. While most of what are in the post are things that we already know about from their previous posts, there is a bit more information here concerning the new Extra Battle mode.

For players looking to earn Rashid’s Viewtiful Joe crossover outfit, more details have been revealed about the process. While we already know that the outfit can be earned by joining and completing four weekly Extra Battle challenges (at the cost of 2,500 Fight Money per challenge), now we know when these can be earned. Specifically they’ve now given out the dates for each challenge, and the icons that have to be won from each to earn the costume.
