M. Bison suits up to explore new realms of evil!
Revealed early via datamining a recent patch, Capcom has now confirmed that M. Bison will be next to receive a Crossover Costume via Extra Battle mode in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Soon, you’ll be able to dress up the dictator as the Demon Lord Astaroth from Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Some history from the Capcom-Unity post:
Appearing in Ghosts ‘n Goblins (1985) and its sequels, Astaroth is the main antagonist to the chivalrous knight, Arthur. He is a demon lord and the ruler of the Demon Realm Village, which is a world inhabited by evil creatures. Astaroth has two faces, the primary one on his head and a secondary one on his abdomen. He can breathe fire through both of his faces to scorch enemies to a crisp. He’s also a master illusionist and can create mirages such as creating clones of himself. With clones and evil in mind, M. Bison is undoubtedly the best character to don the Astaroth Crossover Costume!
As per usual, you need to complete four Extra Battle challenge events during timed windows to get the costume. Each attempt costs 2500 Fight Money, so you’ll need at least 10,000 FM total to get the outfit — provided you beat Astaroth-Bison first time, every time. The CPU tends to get a bit tougher each challenge. Here’s the schedule for the Astaroth costume challenges:
M. Bison is fittingly bringing more Golden Shadaloo Soldiers along with him; take note of when you can play these limited challenges to ensure you don’t miss your chance at more Fight Money or EXP.
Guile is also finishing up his Nameless Super Soldier Crossover Costume this coming week, so hopefully you’ve got the first three pieces!
