Street Fighter V Receives Street Fighter II’s Iconic Suzaku Castle Stage; New Costumes Coming Later This Month
Street Fighter V is getting some throwback content on July 25th.
Street Fighter is a historic franchise, and there are definitely iconic stages, characters and moments that fans never forget. The Street Fighter II stage, Suzaku Castle, is making a comeback later this month.
July 25th marks the arrival of Suzaku Castle, aka Ryu’s home, as well as three new throwback character costumes for Alex, Ibuki, and Juri. You can see the three costumes below with a brief description accompanying each character.
Seeing as the Street Fighter III series is set after Street Fighter V, it only makes sense that Alex would have longer hair in the future. He’s also found the time to buy new green trousers that are less ripped than his old pair.
Ibuki’s nostalgic costume is also from the Street Fighter III series – aka the future. It’s more rugged than her regular outfit, but unfortunately, it doesn’t come with infinite shurikens. It was deemed that this historical inaccuracy be for the greater good.
Unlike Alex and Ibuki, Juri’s nostalgic costume is from the Street Fighter IV series – aka the past. This is how we first met the sadistic taekwondo expert back in 2010. We probably wouldn’t recommend that she wears this outfit while riding her motorbike.
