Some Of The New ‘Street Fighter V’ Costumes Have Us Scratching Our Heads

When Capcom revealed the additions of the Thailand and some new costumes for Street Fighter V earlier this week, those reveals looked pretty awesome. But then the company released a new trio of costumes that are kinda making us ask the obvious question: “Why?”

The new “Work Costumes” were revealed this week, being priced at $4 a pop as DLC for May 25. You’ll be able to purchase these costumes for Alex, R. Mika, and Chun-Li. But we’re kinda wondering why you would. R. Mika is dressed up as a cheerleader, frilly pom-poms and all, which to a dress makes her character look even sillier than it already is in the game. Alex as a firefighter doesn’t make that much sense either, but story-wise he is one of the weakest characters put into the game, so anything to spice him up is probably okay. The most decent of the bunch of Chun-Li dressed as a proper businesswoman, which we suspect DeviantArt boards will be going insane with all weekend long. But there’s no real rational put behind these additions from Capcom beyond the idea that they decided to play dress-up with three characters, so we’re a bit baffled why we should spend $12 on these. But if they’re up your alley, they’ll be available on Tuesday.
