Heads up gamers, if you’re looking forward to being able to play Street Fighter V in a new location or with new costumes, you’ll be pleased to learn that Capcom has announced that come April 25, they will be adding the remastered Thailand stage as well as introducing three premium school costumes for Ryu, Chun-Li, and Jun.
For those who are wondering what so special about this Thailand stage, well basically it is where players were first introduced to the iconic Street Fighter villain M. Bison in Street Fighter II, and this is basically a remastered version of the stage from back in the day in all of its new graphics glory, which we have to say looks pretty good.
According to Capcom, “As revealed at our WonderCon 2017 panel, the iconic Thailand Stage has been remastered and is making its debut in Street Fighter V. The Thailand Stage is where we all first met M. Bison, the evil dictator and head of Shadaloo, in Street Fighter II. The stage’s intricate bell and statues have been carefully recreated in SFV with great detail, as well as the stage’s memorable theme.” The Thailand stage will be available on the 25th of April where it is priced at $3.99 / ￥400 / €3.99, or 70,000 Fight Money alternatively.
Like we said earlier, there will also be new costumes inspired by school uniforms that will be available for three characters, with Ryu sporting a stereotypical Japanese Bancho look, while Chun-Li is going for that honor roll student look, while Jun will have a more gothic look to her. Each costume is priced at $3.99 / ￥400 / €3.99 and will be available on the 25th of April.
