We also want to thank all of our fans for continuing to support the Capcom Pro Tour this year through the new in-game items we’ve released and the new 2017 Premier Pass! [ As we mentioned ], users who purchase the CPT 2017 Premier Pass will not only get access to all the cool new content such as costumes for Ryu and Ken, we will also be offering up additional Targets.  

To kick things off, we’ll be offering up four Targets in June to celebrate the launch of the New CFN which will net you a cool 36,000 Fight Money! We’ll be releasing a new Target each month after that through November.

Keep in mind that each target only lasts for the month that it is active. For example, the Targets in June will expire on July 1 st , the Targets starting in July will expire on August 1 st and so forth.

For a full rundown of all the new Capcom Pro Tour content this year and more information on how this initiative supports Street Fighter V esports, check out this post [ over at the PlayStation Blog ].

Last, but most certainly not least, our latest Season 2 character, the Young Commander Ed, makes his formal debut alongside the New CFN, Spain and Targets. Test your Psycho Power infused boxing skills for $5.99 or 100,000 FM.

S.I.N. kidnapped Ed as a child and experimented on him with the goal of creating a replacement body for M. Bison. Today, he’s a force all his own! Check him out – and his Story and Battle Costumes – starting on May 30.

Don’t forget, the Season 2 Character Pass is now available for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 and will grant pass holders with Akuma, Kolin, Ed, in addition to 3 brand new fighters to be announced later this year. The pass comes with Premium Battle Costumes with colors 3-10 unlocked and default costume colors 3-10 for each character. Additionally, Season 2 Character Pass holders will receive an exclusive PS4 theme!
