Rumor: Mega Man Costumes Are Coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
Thanks to the relentless work of dataminer X-Kira, we have a pretty good idea of what Capcom "cosplay" costumes will be obtainable in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition's Extra Battle mode. Chief among them are EIGHT Mega Man character costumes: classic Mega Man, Proto Man, Roll, Bass, Mega Man X, Zero, Axl and Tron Bonne.
According to X-Kira (by way of Shoryuken), there's a bit more to these costumes than meets the eye: "These will not just be simple 'cosplay' Costumes for the SFV:AE cast, but that they will actually have unique frame data and movesets, essentially letting you play as these characters, with additional moves only usable within the confines of the Extra Battle."
It's worth mentioning these costumes cannot be used outside of Extra Battle nor can they be worn by every SFV cast member. For example, EventHubs member Flowtron – who accurately leaked Street Fighter V's season 2 roster – says classic Mega Man and X can only be worn by Ryu. No word on who will done Proto Man, Roll, Bass or Zero's duds just yet. Any guesses?
