Monster Hunter fans, gather around, and join the quest for the Rathalos, Zinogre, and Kirin Armor Crossover Costumes for Ken, R. Mika, and Ibuki in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition !

In the world of Monster Hunter, players forge different sets of armor from colossal monsters they slay during their journey; Rathalos, Zinogre, and Kirin are just a few of these fearsome foes. These three Crossover Costumes are inspired by their respective armor sets and will be obtainable in the SFV: AE Extra Battle Mode, starting next month!

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 must spend 2,500 Fight Money. In other words, 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.

Kirin is an Elder Dragon who is normally peaceful, but will not hesitate to strike his foes with lightning or use his sharp horn to defend himself. Though Ibuki does not have any lightning abilities, her agility and lightning-fast reflexes embody how Kirin fights, making her a fitting character for the Kirin Armor Crossover Costume.

Zinogre is a wyvern with canine features, including sharp fangs and claws. He can charge himself up to unleash electrical attacks that leaves hunters more susceptible to being stunned. R. Mika’s V-Skill, Mic Performance, is a prime example of charging up to execute a devastating attack, which makes her suitable for the Zinogre Armor Crossover Costume.

In the Monster Hunter series, Rathalos is a flying wyvern who hunts from the skies by surprising his prey. He utilizes his poisonous talons, fiery projectiles, and clubbed tail to attack any creature foolish enough to step into his territory. As a fighter who utilizes fire in his move set, Ken is the perfect character to don the Rathalos Armor Crossover Costume.

Please note that dates and times for these Extra Battle Challenges may shift unexpectedly.

Once you get each icon, you can attempt the challenge again to obtain bonus rewards that will be listed once these Extra Battle Challenges start. You can continue earning bonus rewards as many times as you’d like granted the entrance fee is paid.

As you can see, all three of these Extra Battle Challenge sets overlap, meaning you’ll need to be on your toes to complete them. Form a plan and execute, just like how hunters prepare to fight monsters in Monster Hunter: World, available on 1/26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One!
