Christmas Comes To Street Fighter V

by Kevin Slackie on Dec 01, 2016 at 08:15 AM

Following the recent Halloween DLC, Capcom is bringing Christmas to the streets in the latest Street Fighter V DLC. The new update includes six costumes and a stage, though pricing hasn't been announced just yet.

Characters getting into the Christmas cheer include Juri, Zangief, Laura, Rainbow Mika, Ken, and Karen. Unlike the previous holiday DLC, this one will be sold individually as well as in a bundle.

We found the latest entry to this beloved franchise rather lackluster and it seems sales are reflecting that.


Our Take
While it's great to see Capcom still support SFV, these costumes feel terribly uninspired especially when compared to the Halloween event. Four women in winter bikinis seems almost comically boring. The worst part is we don't get to have Santa Bison or Mall Elf Birdie.
