No Guts, no glory!

Since its release in January 2018, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition’s Extra Battle has continuously offered players various in-game rewards for defeating special AI opponents — provided the have the required amount of Fight Money available to challenge them. This has mainly come in the form of special Crossover Costumes that see the cast of Street Fighter V dressed up as various characters from other notable Capcom franchises, such as Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, Viewtiful Joe, Devil May Cry, Plasma Sword, Captain Commando, and Forgotten Worlds, to name some.

Currently, Ryu’s Jin Saotome Crossover Costume from Cyberbots is in its third week, and Capcom also recently announced the next crossover attire coming to the game afterwards. Following up from the Air Man Crossover Costume for Rashid back in August, Capcom has announced another Word Warrior will be getting dressed up as a Robot Master from Mega Man: Balrog will be receiving his first Crossover Costume, turning him into the mighty Guts Man. The first challenge will begin on February 15th, and as always will cost players, 2,500 Fight Money per attempt, with the outfit only obtainable by collecting all four Gems over the course of four consecutive weeks (setting you back a minimum of 10,000 Fight Money total). There will likely also be an additional Extra Battle for Guts Man’s Crossover BGM as well. You can see the official announcement from the Street Fighter Twitter account below.
