Monster Hunter: World is now out in the wild and as we welcome all hunters to the New World, we want to also extend the invite to all the Street Fighters out there!

 “So how do I get these Street Fighter outfits in my Monster Hunter?” you ask. Well, here’s how:

First up: a quick reminder these are full sets of armor that have to be equipped as one single entry and cannot be mixed with other armor pieces. However, these full armor sets can be equipped by both male and female hunters, even changing their voices to match either Ryu’s or Sakura’s.

From February 15th (4pm PST) until March 1st (4pm PST), we’ll be featuring the quest to get Ryu’s set as an exclusive early opportunity to PS4 players that also have a save data file from Street Fighter V (including Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition ).

Hunters with that save data will receive a special quest called “Down the Dark, Muddy Path.” After claiming the quest at the  Housekeeper , it’ll be available under the  Challenge Quests menu from the  Arena Lass at the  Gathering Hub .

From there, just channel your fighting spirit, complete that quest and you’ll get “SFV Tickets” as the special reward item. Bring that, along with other necessary materials, to the Smithy and you got yourself a Ryu armor set!

Hunters on PS4 that don’t have SFV save data (and hunters on Xbox One) won’t have to wait much longer, however, as the Event Quest will go back in rotation for all players at a later date. The exact timing is still to be announced, but during this time, everyone will be able to fight for their Ryu set.

And not long after that, two new Event Quests will be added to the rotation for all players (PS4 and Xbox One) and completing them will get you new “SFV Tickets,” so you can craft the Ryu and Sakura sets. By the way, check out these sets in action here:

“Oh wait a minute! How do I get THOSE ?!” you might also ask, while pointing at the Hadouken and Shoryuken on screen.

These sweet, iconic premium gestures, along with Chat Stamp sets, will be available for purchase for everyone on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Marketplace. Pricing of the extra content breakdown below:

Guild Card: Bonus Stage – FREE
Achievements: Rival, Destined, Living Legend and Bandana Girl – FREE
Pose: Shoryuken & Hadoken – FREE

Gesture: Street Fighter V Hadoken – $3.99
Gesture: Street Fighter V Shoryuken – $3.99
Stamp Set: Street Fighter V Set – $1.99

But this is not the end of the SF x MH tie-in. Street Fighter V players have some special Monster Hunter content to look forward to (and fight hard for) in their game too! Check out this month’s SFV:AE Extra Battle blog for more details on how to get Rathalos armor for Ken, Zinogre armor for R. Mika and Kirin armor for Ibuki.

Best of luck to all the hunters and fighters out there!
