A new arena and new outfits, for a new year of the Capcom Pro Tour.

Via the Japanese Street Fighter V website, Capcom has revealed the first images of the new stage and costumes that will comprise the 2018 Capcom Pro Tour Premier Pass. This year, Sakura and Akuma get their own classy outfits to show off:

Prior years brought us the Ring of Destiny and the Ring of Pride; now, get ready to step into the Shadaloo-influenced Ring of Power.

Ring of Power (CPT 2018)

The Sakura and Akuma costumes are listed as being available individually at ¥600 (about $6.00 USD) apiece. ¥2000 ($19.00 USD) gets the complete Premier Pass, which will include both costumes, the Ring of Power stage, a new EX color for the whole roster to date, new titles and fighter profile themes, access to exclusive Missions, 5000 Fight Money — and of course, the upcoming CPT costume for Birdie, as designed by Capcom Cup 2017 champion MenaRD.

This content will start becoming available in the West on April 3, 2018 — Akuma’s and Sakura’s costume will be released then, with the Ring of Power and Birdie’s new costume to follow later.
