Good always conquers evil, right? While the last piece of the Astaroth Crossover Costume for M. Bison is underway, the Arthur Crossover Costume for Ryu will come dashing in to show the villain what it means to be a hero! The Arthur Crossover Costume challenges in Extra Battle Mode will begin on June 7.


HOW DOES EXTRA BATTLE MODE WORK?

Every month, there will be at least one unique costume like a Crossover Costume up for grabs, which can only be obtained by playing Extra Battle Mode with Fight Money. Here’s the flow of how to go about getting these costumes:

  • Each costume requires you to complete four challenges that take place over the span of a month – one challenge per week.
  • Each time you attempt one of these challenges, you will need to spend 2,500 Fight Money. So if you successfully complete each of the weekly challenges in one go, you can get that Extra Battle Costume for 10,000 FM!
  • Once you complete all four challenges, the costume for that month is yours!
  • These challenges are time exclusive, so make sure to log in each week to complete them, especially if you have your eyes on that month’s unique costume.

 

Appearing in Ghosts ‘n Goblins (1985) and its sequels, Arthur is the main protagonist who is on a mission to rescue the princess Guinevere from countless villains like Astaroth. Utilizing an arsenal of knightly weapons including a lance, dagger, axe, sword, crossbow, and more, Arthur is able to fend off armies of undead in the name of the princess. One of the most notable things about Arthur is the fact he loses his armor when hit, reducing his clothing to only boxer shorts. As both Ryu is the protagonist of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and has a penchant for being good, he’s the perfect character to don Arthur’s armor. In case you’re worried, you can definitely get the armor-less version of this costume using the alternate code.
