Mark your calendars to ensure you don’t miss any of the Extra Battle goodies.
Via the Capcom-Unity blog, Capcom’s Andy Wong has provided details as to the next batch of Extra Battle challenges coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Most significantly, the big one to watch out for is the next Crossover Costume: this time, you can earn the chance to dress up Chun-Li like Star Gladiator‘s June Lin Milliam.
Some details on June, from Capcom-Unity:
June Lin Milliam is a rhythmic gymnast from the Star Gladiator series that spawned two games, Star Gladiator – Episode 1: Final Crusade (1996) and Plasma Sword: Nightmare of Bilstein (1998). On the outside, June has a cheerful and upbeat personality that acts as a mask for the pain she experiences every day following the murder of her parents by the madman, Bilstein. Sharing a similar tragedy with her father having been killed by M. Bison, Chun-Li understands the weight behind wearing this June Crossover Costume.
Unlocking the June outfit in SFV works the same as it did for Rashid’s Viewtiful Joe costume: you’ll need to complete all four of the scheduled challenges to earn the four costume components. Make sure to log in on these dates:
Capcom has also announced more chances to earn Fight Money and EXP off some Golden Shadaloo Soldiers — based on the FM costs and their names, sounds like these might be tougher than previous ones. Monster Hunter fans won’t want to miss the chance to unlock some MH music in the (currently mysterious) “Proof of a Hero” special challenge.
As usual, the challenge schedules are subject to change. Make sure to keep an eye out for the Monster Hunter crossover costumes coming as well — the first of those challenges is expected on the 27th of February.
