Blanka, Fei Long, Guile and others suit up for a special pre-order bonus

TODO alt text

The follow-up to one of last year%26rsquo;s highest-rated gamesis still over a month away, but Capcom%26rsquo;s not wasting any time shoveling the hype train full of much-deserved coal. The past couple of months have seen new fighters announced with regularity (SFIII%26rsquo;s Dudley, Ibuki and Makoto being the most recent), and today we%26rsquo;ve got the first shots of a swanky pre-order bonus %26ndash; the %26ldquo;Super Classic Costume%26rdquo; pack, starring Blanka, Guile, Gen, Fei Long and Dhalsim.

Above: Fei %26ldquo;not Bruce Lee%26rdquo; Long in a sweet-ass Kato costume. Look it up!

Capcom%26rsquo;s Unity bloghas the full details, along with direct links to Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop. If you%26rsquo;re not big on pre-orders, the costume pack is a timed exclusive, meaning it%26rsquo;ll eventually become available to everyone. However, you%26rsquo;ll probably end up paying for the pack at that point, and who wants to buy what was once free?

Above: Guile%26rsquo;s ballistic vest should protect from bullets, but what about fireballs, electricity and DNA-stealing bosses?
