If you enjoy playing Capcom games and miss the good old days then prepare for some throwback outfits coming your way. Street Fighter 5 taps into Marvel Vs Capcom nostalgia with some character costumes for Season 5 — and it will start rolling out next week!
As revealed and teased by the official Street Fighter social media pages, Akuma and Rose are among the first characters who are getting some new alternate costumes which can be purchased at the Street Fighter 5 shop page. Fans of the Marvel Vs Capcom series will recognize these skins from the 2D era of fighting games, and here’s what each character is getting.
Half man, half machine, all Akuma! 👿
The Cyber-Akuma costume arrives in #SFV on September 21st! Available with Season 5 Premium Pass.

The demon Ansatsuken master will be sporting his Cyber Akuma look straight from Marvel Superheroes Vs Street Fighter — where that character was augmented by Apocalypse and served as the final boss of that crossover game. Unlike that version of Akuma, this is just a costume and he won’t have access to rocket punch fists. He will however sprout out his cyber wings for effect when he does combos and his Raging Demon finisher!
Rose's fortune looks grand on the salty seas! 🌹 🏴☠

As an unlikely costume choice for Rose, Ruby Heart is no stranger to Capcom fans as she is one of the original fighters representing the brand for Marvel Vs Capcom 2! Of course she won’t be using barrels or ship attacks, but this is a fun throwback to MvC 2 and probably a small nod to fans who loved the crossover series!
There’s already plenty of new content for Street Fighter 5 thanks to the recent Summer Update that finally saw Oro and Akira released as playable characters, and we can expect more stuff later building to the release of the final DLC character in Luke before the year ends.
Both Cyber Akuma and Ruby Heart costumes will become available for Street Fighter 5 next week starting September 21! It’s free if you purchase the Season 5 premium pass, or you can buy them individually at $3.99 each!
